In Indonesia, meatballs usually are fried. We found this baked version to be juicier and more flavorful, as well as lower in fat. Combine ground beef coconut and eggs in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Form mixture into 1" balls. Place balls on a 15x10x1" baking pan. Bake at 350F 15-18 minutes or till done. Drain. Serve warm with Coconut and Peanut Butter Sauce. Makes 48.
