How to make it

  • To prepare sauce, combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl.
  • To prepare meatballs, combine ground pork and next 9 ingredients in a large bowl, and shape mixture into 8 meatballs. Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs; cook 7 minutes, browning on all sides. Drain well.
  • Place sauce in a large sauce pan; bring to boil over a medium-high heat. Add meatballs; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 8 minutes. Garnish with basil and rind.
  • Serving size: 1 meatball and 3 tablespoons sauce; 297 calories; 20% from fat.
  • WINE NOTE: With their gingery spiciness, these meatballs are just waiting for a superfruity red wine that's low in tannin. Zinfindel fits the bill beautifully. Try Dry Creek Vinyard's Reserve Zinfindel (about $30). It's a big, mouth filling fruit bomb with loads of blackberry, blueberry, and boysenberry flavors. Dry Creek's less expensive Zin, Old Vines, is a great bet for about $21.
