- MEATBALLS AND GLAZE
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray.
- Combine scallions, half the garlic, 2 teaspoons ginger, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1/2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce, panko and egg in a bowl and mix well. Add the pork and mix until well combined. Form into 16 1-inch meatballs and place on prepared baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted registers 165 degrees.
- Meanwhile, make the glaze. Combine remaining garlic, ginger, 1/4 cup soy sauce, chili sauce, broth, hoisin sauce, sherry, rice vinegar and corn starch in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened. When meatballs are cooked through, transfer them to saucepan and keep warm while preparing the rice noodles.
- RICE NOODLES
- Cook rice noodles in boiling water with salt per package directions; drain well and toss with 1 tablespoon canola oil.
- Heat remaining oil in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the cabbage and carrot and cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often or until vegetables are crisp-tender. Stir in remaining ingredients, add the rice noodles and heat through.
- Serve with meatballs.
