  • 1

    pound ground pork

  • 5

    scallions, finely chopped

  • ¼

    cup gochujang (Korean chile paste)

  • ¼

    cup mirin mirin

  • 2

    tablespoons soy sauce

  • 4

    medium garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated

  • 2

    tablespoons canola oil


Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, stir together the pork, scallions, gochujang, mirin, soy sauce, garlic and ginger until combined (the mixture will be very wet). Use your hands to roll the mixture into 1½-inch meatballs (there should be about 14 total). In a large skillet set over medium-high heat, add the oil. Once the oil begins to shimmer, add the meatballs (cook the meatballs in batches if necessary). Cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Turn the meatballs over and brown the other side, 2 to 3 minutes longer, and then transfer them to a rimmed baking sheet. Place the meatballs in the oven and bake until they resist light pressure and are cooked through, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel to drain and serve hot.
