It’s Foodie Friday! We have a quick, Vietnamese inspired four ingredient dish with for you today. Faster and easier to flip, kababs are the new meatball! Make some rice and steam some veggies and dinner is served in no time.
Four Ingredient Vietnamese Kabobs
1 pound ground beef or pork, or a mix
2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh ginger
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
3 Tbsp fish sauce*
Preheat broiler on high with rack 2-4 inches away from heat source. Cover a baking sheet with foil.
Mix all ingredients together with your hands in a large bowl. Do not overwork meat. Divide the meat evenly into 8 sections. Form each section into a log about an inch across and spear longways onto a wooden skewer (we snapped 4 long skewers each in half and used those**). Place a couple inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
Broil 4-7 minutes, turning once, until kabobs are browned and meat is cooked through.
*Find it in bottles in the International foods aisle or Asian grocery store. It will not make your food taste like fish, but it will impart a delicious, savory flavor you might have heard before referred to as umami.
**If you don’t have skewers, you can form the mixture into meatballs and cook using the same method. We would recommend forming 16-20 meatballs so you have more browning surface.
