What is a Mongolian Meatball? Well, it's not a punk band. ("I saw Mongolian Meatball open for The Clash in '81!") It's also not a pro-wrestler from Mongolia. ("And that's when the Mongolian Meatball threw him down in a wicked suplex.") No, Mongolian meatballs take the delicious flavors from Mongolian beef… spicy, sweet, onion-y… and brings them to you in meatball form. Fresh broccoli, crunchy peanuts, and green onions bring this meal up to perfection standards, better than any concert or sporting event.

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Trim and cut white portions of green onion into 1" lengths. Thinly slice green portions. Keep white and green portions separate.

    Coarsely chop peanuts.
