Spicy Green Pork Meatballs with a Mango Chutney

These steamed meatballs are juicy, tender, and have a nice kick from the habaneros!

Ingredients

2
pounds ground pork
1
pound fresh spinach
3
habaneros
1
bunch green onion
8
ounces feta cheese
2
cloves garlic
5
mangoes
1
orange
1/2
red onion
1/2
red bell pepper
1
inch ginger
1/2
cup cider vinegar
1
cup brown sugar
1
tablespoon chile flake

Directions

  • 1 Make the Chutney: Dice up the mango, onion, pepper, and ginger. Heat some oil in a pan and add the chile flake. Cook 1 minute. Next add the onion and pepper. Cook 2 minutes. Next add the ginger. Cook 1 minute. Add the mango. Cook 2 minutes. Add the brown sugar, vinegar, and juice from the orange. Cook on low for 45 minutes or until it becomes jelly like.
  • 2 Make the Meatballs: Put the spinach, green onions, habaneros (with seeds removed), and garlic into the food processor and blend until it makes a paste. A little bit of oil will help this process.
  • 3 Mix this paste with the pork and feta. Roll out all your bite sized meatballs, and steam them for about 6 minutes until cooked through.
  • 4 Serve the meatballs with the chutney as a dipping sauce.

Have you played the bestselling video game that pits birds against pigs?

There's trouble on the farm when pigs take some eggs and the birds strike back. The round pigs were the inspiration for these Spicy Green Pork Meatballs with Mango Chutney.

Beware! There's a little kick of raging habanero in there!

These meatballs went awesome with a simple mango chutney. Get everything ready for your chutney before you start cooking.

I steamed these meatballs to retain the awesome green color. Normally I like to fry or broil meatballs, but I didn't want them to become brown.

If you want to get crazy with it, go ahead and make some wooden structures like in the game. Just make sure to have the chutney nearby so people know to dip.
