1 pound ground pork
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh basil
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 green onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon sriracha
1 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon coarse kosher salt

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Using a spoon and clean hands, roll meat mixture into 1 inch meatballs.  Place the meatballs on a baking sheet and place in oven for 15 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.  Turn the meatballs regularly to achieve browning on all sides.  Serve meatballs on sliced baguette with pickled vegetables, jalapenos, cilantro and sriracha mayo.

Hidden Villa Community Recipe-sharing

Hello Hidden Villa Community! We're going to get this blog going again! Once or twice a month I'll post recipes and when our CSA is active, we'll include seasonal recipes using our own produce, herbs, fruit, and edible flowers! I hope you'll find our blog entertaining and informative (and beautiful)! You are also welcome to share your recipes with me and I'll add them to our blog as space allows. Please be sure to include where you obtained the recipe, if it's not a family recipe. Simply email me at with "Recipe" in the subject line. And, I welcome comments and suggestions. Let's start a dialogue! Sincerely, Alisa Moore (Programs Administrator)
