Growing up I’d wait all week long for Saturday mornings when my grandma, or Ba Ngoai, and me would binge-watch cooking shows on PBS like Jacque Pepin and Martin Yan’s, and we’d get so inspired and cook up a storm the rest of the day! One of my favorite memories was when we’d make Xiu Mai, or Vietnamese Meatballs with her and my mom after a tv marathon. These are not the kind of Xiu Mai you get at Dim Sum, they’re steamed and simmered in a sweet and savory tomato sauce. And we ate them with a crusty Vietnamese baguette to soak up all of the yummy juices. Doesn’t that sound good? Check out the recipe and video below!
