Serves 4

500g pork mince
1 spring onion, chopped finely
1 Tbsp grated ginger
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp oyster sauce
¼ cup chopped coriander
1 cup chicken stock

2 heads bok choy
Hot rice to serve

1. Preheat an oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with paper.

2. Into a large bowl combine the mince, spring onion, ginger, lemon zest, soy sauce, oyster sauce and coriander. Roll the mixture into walnut-sized balls and place on the baking tray, then put into the hot oven for 20 minutes.

3. For the vegetables, combine the chicken stock and hoisin sauce in a pot and heat to a simmer. Add the vegetables, cooking for 3 or 4 minutes until just cooked through.

4. Serve the balls on hot rice with vegetables on the side. Spoon over the liquid from the vegetable pot.
