These Asian-Inspired Porcupine Meatballs are Easily Customizable

If you are obsessed with ramen and are looking for new ways to cook the inexpensive noodles, these porcupine meatballs are a fun way to go. The name can be misleading (the balls aren't made with porcupine meat) as they are made with ground pork. The outsides are covered in ramen noodles, which give them the illusion of prickliness.

The porcupine meatballs could be dipped in a number of different sauces, from sweet chili sauce to spicy garlic soy and even sesame garlic. You could also substitute the ground pork for honey teriyaki chicken for a different kind of Asian flair. The recipe provides a starting point with lots of room for interpretation and inspiration.
