Vietnamese Meatballs Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)

I agree with other reviewers - this is way too wet. I have no idea how you'd put it on skewers. An ingredient was left out for binding (oatmeal, bread crumbs, etc) or the directions are incorrect (heat to make the corn starch thicken?). On a 1 lb recipe, I had to add 1/2 cup of quick oats and 1/4 cup of panko bread crumbs to even come close to making a meatball. I served them with peanut sauce (a combo of recipes from here). They were really good - after the additions.

These were really good but I had to modify the recipe. Halfway through I realized there was a lot of liquid so I eliminated the oil and the fish sauce. At this point I added 1/4 cup of plain breadcrumbs and the consistency was perfect. Then I realized I forgot to add the egg white so I added only 1/2 of an egg white and it was way too wet. It took another 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs to thicken it back to normal. I cooked it on a parchment lined cookie sheet on 350 for 30-35 minutes (can't remember exactly how long I set the timer for but you can tell when you smell them that they are done.) I made them in walnut sized balls and got 23 balls out of 1 package of ground chicken. I like the flavor and will make again. I also liked adding the breadcrumbs too and it didn't detract from the flavor. My husband dipped his in sweet chili sauce and I added mine to a soba (buckwheat) noodle bowl.

I love these meatballs! Ive made them a few times and serve them with a noodle and veggie stir fry. Easy, different and healthy.

This recipe is terrible. Way too wet. I had to add breadcrumbs and the taste was nothing I would ever want to eat again.

Good recipe, I added a couple extras: chopped green onion and bread crumbs, as it was very wet. I cooked the meatballs on cookie sheets and omitted the skewers. Served on rice, add peanut sauce or other sauces to dip!

No fish sauce, but that didn't hurt. Made them walnut sized and nuked them, then dipped in hot sauce. Also heated leftovers in chicken broth along with assorted veggies to make a complete meal. Versatile with subtle flavor.
