  1. Mix all meatball ingredients together and with wet hands roll into approx. 40 small meatballs. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot add the canola oil and saute the garlic and ginger until fragrant, 1-2 min. Add the chicken broth, sherry and molasses. Bring up to a boil and simmer for 5 min. Add the meatballs one at a time so they don't all stick together and simmer for 8 min. Add the cabbage and cook another 5-7 min. until the cabbage is done to your liking.
  3. Serve with green onion and crispy chow mein noodles.

    I love Asian inspired foods! This sound like something I would love! Maybe I’ll add some rice noodles to the broth! And I love those chopsticks…are they joined at the top? I call those training wheels…lol! I’m pinning this! =)

    Happy Blogiversary! Your Asian-flavored meatballs remind me of an appetizer my best friend’s mom used to make for parties – pork and chopped up water chestnuts were the main ingredients. I’d never had something so exotic!
