A note about serious food allergies

Why does the tiger weep? According to myth, two potential reasons: the first, the ancient Thai thought tigers had emotions like humans, and that they were upset for leaving so much cow uneaten in the fields. (I guess you had to be there.) The second reason? When meat was cut thin like tiger skin, the fat rolled off like tears when grilled. Pick the legend you prefer, and pick this meal, which will make you weep with delight at the amazing flavor and tender texture of these meatballs. Weeping Tiger, Delicious Dinner.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Warm Edamame

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice the other half.

    Finely crush crackers.

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add edamame to dry, hot pan and stir occasionally until warmed through, 1-2 minutes.

    Remove edamame to a plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatballs

    Combine ground beef, crackers, half the seasoned salt (reserve remaining for slaw), and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl.

    Form mixture into eight evenly-sized meatballs. Set aside.

  3. 3

    Make the Slaw

    In another mixing bowl, combine slaw mix, dressing, edamame, and remaining seasoned salt. Set aside.

  4. 4

    Cook the Meatballs

    Return pan used to cook edamame to medium heat and spray with cooking spray. Add meatballs to hot pan. Cover, and cook undisturbed until browned, 3-4 minutes.

    Uncover, and gently roll meatballs to another “side.” Cover again, and cook until meatballs reach a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Gently stir in sweet chili sauce, 1 tsp. lime juice, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt until meatballs are glazed. If sauce is too thick, add 1 Tbsp. water.

  5. 5
