Quick Mango Habanero Pork Meatballs: a delicious mix of sweet-spicy flavors with melt in your mouth meatballs. These meatballs are perfect for your next Grill or BBQ Party
Hey Everyone, I was waiting to share these Quick Mango Habanero Pork Meatballs with you as they HAVE to be included in your next grilling/bbq or get-togethers at home.
These succulent meatballs are everything you could think of in a summer recipe, easy, quick, delicious, and the best part is that they can be frozen for later use 🙂 (Now, we are talking Right!!)
Since Mr. and I, were traveling a lot last year, hence we didn’t get to attend or host enough summer parties. So we had promised ourselves that this year, we will start summer with a bang !!
And we hosted our 2nd party within a month 🙂 and these Quick Mango Habanero Pork Meatballs were the star of the party and on repeat at both of them.
Ingredient to Make the Meatballs:
1 Cup Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork
1 Small Red Onion – thinly sliced
1/2 Cup Diced Mango
1 Tbsp Habanero Sauce – you may use this as per taste (I’m using a light habanero sauce)
1 Tbsp Meat Seasoning – use any of your choice
Salt – 1/4 Tsp (you may completely skip or add more as per taste)
2 Tbsp Cilantro – thinly chopped
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
Ingredient to Make the Sauce:
1 Tsp Olive Oil
1/2 Cup Diced Mango
1/4 Tsp Habanero Sauce
2 Tbsp Ketchup
1 Tbsp Balsamic Vinegar or Teriyaki Sauce
1/4 Tsp Ginger+Garlic Powder
Salt – as per taste
1/2 Cup Water
We make them using ‘Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork’ and they always turn out tender, juicy and succulent.
Our go-to is Farmer John Fresh Pork as they have been a West Coast Original since 1931, serving 100% natural pork (no-artificial flavors) products, clean, easily available and within budget.
All this makes them a PERFECT fit to be included in recipes for a small or big crowd.
The recipe for these Quick Mango Habanero Meatballs is extremely simple and easy.
And as I just mentioned above, once the meatballs are ready, you can freeze them for upto a month (Always Date Stamp the bag or box you store any frozen food).
So once you decide to use them for your party, lightly sauté the meatballs in a heavy bottom skillet (that helps evenly brown and cook the meat).
Now, let’s talk about this Amaaaazingly Delicious ‘Mango Habanero Sauce’ and as my friends call it the pairing is inseparable.
The sweet mango with spicy habanero is everything you need and it is so easy to make that you’d wonder, why haven’t you ever tried it yet?
I did add a little bit of the mango-habanero flavor in the meatballs too.
So once the sauce is ready, simply sauté the meatballs for few minutes.
You can keep it as saucy as you want. Once the meatballs are fully cooked, simply transfer them to a serving plate.
I usually serve this as an appetizer when I’m entertaining, but you can even serve it as a lunch or dinner entree along with a side of steamed rice or thin spaghetti noodles.
You can also see that once the meatballs are nicely sautéed and coated in our saucy mango-habanero mix, it adds such a gorgeous gloss on top.
This way, they remain juicy, tender and coated all through the evening.
You can even do this step 2-3 hours before the party and simply heat and serve – that saves so much time too.
So, here we are with our Quick Mango Habanero Meatballs featuring the Farmer John Extra Lean Ground Pork.
Do give them a try and if you’re grilling this week or any other, you should also try out Farmer John’s variety of fresh pork cuts, like boneless loins, chops, ribs, ground pork, tenderloins, etc.
