MAKING

6. Microwave the molded meatballs for 1 minutes, to get them firm.
7. Then, using a pair of tongs, pick each meatball and skewer them onto bamboo skewers. (4 meatballs per skewer)
8. Place the skewers with the meatballs in a heated oven and grill until browned on all sides.

SERVING
9. Serve the pork meatballs warm with vermicelli, thinly sliced vegetables of your choice (like cucumbers, carrots), mint along with some Vietnamese dipping sauce.
