Ching He Huang/Chinese Food Made Easy/Cooking for family/'Lion head' meatballs
Ching He Huang/Chinese Food Made Easy/Cooking for family 'Lion head' meatballs Ching makes a dish named after the way it's served, surrounded by Chinese cabbage: the meatball is said to resemble a lion's head, while the cabbage is the lion's mane. Ingredients For the meatballs 500g/1lb 2oz beef mince 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 tbsp grated fresh root ginger 2 spring onions, finely chopped pinch sea salt 1 tbsp Shaoxing rice wine or dry sherry (or more, to taste) 2 tbsp light soy sauce 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil 1 free-range egg, beaten 1 tbsp cornflour pinch ground white pepper For the finished dish 100ml/3½fl oz groundnut oil 750ml/1¼ pint vegetable stock 300g/11oz Chinese leaf, quartered lengthways 3 dried Chinese mushrooms, soaked in warm water for 15 minutes, then drained (alternative use fresh chestnut mushrooms, sliced) 1 tbsp light soy sauce 1 tbsp cornflour, mixed with 2 tbsp cold water (optional) sea salt and ground white pepper 2 large spring onions, sliced dash sesame oil (optional) Method 1. For the meatballs, place all of the meatball ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine. 2. With damp hands, take a large mound of the minced meat mixture and mould into a ball that is a little larger than a golf ball. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining meatball mixture. 3. For the finished dish, pour the groundnut oil into a large deep pan and heat over a high heat. Using a metal ladle, carefully lower each meatball into the oil and spoon some of the oil over the meatballs. Cook for 4-5 minutes, or until golden-brown all over. 4. Pour all but two tablespoons of the cooking oil out into a heatproof bowl. Add the stock to the pan and arrange the slices of Chinese cabbage around the meatballs, curving them around the sides of the pan lengthways, then add the mushrooms and soy sauce and bring to the boil. Cover the pan, reduce the heat and cook gently for 15 minutes. Alternatively, cook the meatballs in the oven; arrange in a casserole dish, cover with kitchen foil and cook in a preheated oven at 100C/210F/Gas ¼ for 30 minutes. If the sauce is too thin, add the cornflour paste and stir until thickened. 5. Take the meatballs off the heat and season, to taste, with sea salt and ground white pepper. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with the spring onions, sprinkle over a dash of seame oil and serve immediately.
