1 pound ground pork

2 teaspoons sugar

2 tablespoons fish sauce

3 tablespoons water

1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Instructions

In a saute pan over medium high heat add in the grapeseed oil and minced shallot. Cook until translucent, about 1-2 minutes

To the pan add in the minced garlic and ginger, cooking another minute

Add in the chopped mushrooms and let them cook until slightly browned, about 2-3 minutes

Once everything is cooked put into a bowl and let it cool completely

After the mushrooms have cooled add in the ground pork, sugar, fish sauce, water, salt, pepper, cilantro, and scallions. Use your hands and mix together completely

Once mixed take about 1/4 cup of the mixture into your hands and roll into a ball. Put all of the meatballs onto a plate and put them into the refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes

On a griddle pan  or large skillet heat up a little oil over medium heat and add the meatballs. Turn them constantly until cooked through, about 6-8 minutes depending on the size of the meatball

While the meatballs are cooking make the sauce. In a small bowl add the lime juice, sugar, salt, pepper, sliced jalapeno, and chopped cilantro. Stir until combined

Once the meatballs are cooked  serve them on top of butter lettuce and top with shredded carrots, chopped cilantro, and sliced green onions with a little spoonful of the lime sauce!
