Easy Grilled Pork Meatballs (Vietnamese Nem Nướng)

Summer is near and i was craving for some Easy Grilled Pork Meatballs today! This dish is pretty easy to make and you can simply enjoy them with Sriracha Sauce. I’m a sucker for cast iron..I like cast iron everything thats why i just had to grill these meat on DYI grill hibachi style inspired using my cast iron pan.


  • 2lbs of ground pork
    -1 cup of ground wooden ear mushroom (optional)- buy it fresh then use food processor to grind it.
    -1/4 cup of fish sauce
    -2 teaspoon of mushroom seasoning (or chicken stocking)
    -2 teaspoon of salt
    -2 tablespoon of ground black pepper
    -1 tablespoon of cayenne pepper
    -2 teaspoon of baking powder mix with 1/4 cup of water.
    -1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
    -1/4 cup of grind fresh garlic (you can use powder garlic- its fine too)
    -1/4 cup of grind fresh shallot (or white onions)


-Mix all these ingredients above together. If you have food processor, you can use it to mix/grind everything together.
-Make ball shape meat
-Grill until golden brown around 5 minutes per side- depends how big the balls are…if they’re bigger then cook it longer. Brush some oils on the meat while they’re on the grill.

I’ve been wanting a hibachi grill for a long time however they’re expensive…Check out my pics to see how easy it is to make a DYI charcoals grill at home 🙂
