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.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F

Customize It Instructions

  • If using 20 oz. ground beef, follow same instructions as 10 oz. ground beef, forming 16 meatballs and cooking in batches, if necessary.

  • If using Impossible burger, follow same instructions as ground beef in Steps 2 and 3, rolling occasionally until heated through, 4-7 minutes.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

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

    Finely crush crackers.

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1/4" strips.

  2. 2

    Make the Meatballs

    Combine ground beef, crackers, seasoned salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl.

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

  3. 3

    Cook the Meatballs

    Place a medium non-stick pan over 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 (to taste), 1 tsp. lime juice, half the soy sauce (reserve remaining for stir-fry), and a pinch of salt until meatballs are glazed. If sauce is too thick, add 1 Tbsp. water.

    While the meatballs cook, cook stir-fry.

  4. 4

    Cook the Stir-Fry

    Place another medium non-stick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and red bell pepper to hot pan. Stir occasionally until pepper is soft and slightly charred, 6-8 minutes.

    Add slaw mix, edamame, sesame oil, and remaining soy sauce. Stir occasionally until vegetables begin to soften, 2-4 minutes.

    Remove from burner.

  5. 5
