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.
Chile flake in the oil to create the base chile flavor.
Next in: peppers and onions.
Then mango and the rest of the ingredients. After this simmers for about an hour, it gets a nice goopy jelly consistency.
Now on to the meatballs. Blend these ingredients to a paste.
Green, just like they are in the game!
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.
This is the more classy presentation. The vibrant colors in this dish are amazing.
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.
