Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place lemon grass, onion, and garlic in the container of an electric blender or food processor. Cover and blend or process until finely chopped, about 10 seconds. Scrape lemon grass mixture into a bowl, and stir in beef, salt, pepper, sugar, cornstarch, oyster sauce, and sesame oil.
  3. Form meat mixture into 12 meatballs. Thread onto skewers.
  4. Cook on the preheated grill until the meatballs are well done, about 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

I added fresh ginger and substituted soy sauce for the salt. The substitution was a mistake and made the meatballs too moist. Other than that, they tasted great. The flavors work really well ...

These are tasty as written, but require very young, tender lemon grass to make I like to add very finely ground pork and use rice flour, but that's another story. For those who are just learnin...
