Rice and pork balls with pea pods

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Slightly beaten egg
1 tablespoon Soy sauce
1 teaspoon Grated gingerroot
½ teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Sugar
1 pounds Ground pork
½ cup Chopped fresh mushrooms
¼ cup Finely chopped water chestnuts
1 tablespoon Thinly sliced green onions
1½ cup Cooked long grain rice
3 cups Fresh pea pods -or-
2 packs (6-oz) frozen pea pods, thawed
1 teaspoon Butter or margarine
1 teaspoon Soy sauce

Combine egg, the 1 Tbsp soy sauce, gingerroot, salt and sugar. Add pork, mushrooms, water chestnuts and green onion; mix thoroughly. Form meat mixture into 30 meatballs. Roll meatballs in cooked rice, pressing down gently, but firmly, so rice adheres to meat mixture. Over high heat, bring water for steaming to boiling. Place pork balls on one steamer rack; place rack over boiling water. Cover steamer; steam about 15 minutes. Add pea pods to a second rack of steamer; place atop first rack. Cover and continue steaming meatballs and pea pods 15 minutes more, or until done (add more boiling water to steamer, if necessary) Toss pea pods with butter or margarine and the 1 teaspoon soy sauce; serve with meatballs. Makes 6 servings.
