On Episode 4 of Food Network Canada’s Recipe to Riches, Jackie Koh of Vancouver, British Columbia battled against other home cooks in the Hors d’Oeuvres category.
Small in stature but big in personality, Vancouver’s Jackie Koh has a flair for fashion, fun and food. She was born and raised in Seoul, Korea and is passionate about maintaining a strong link to her roots through her cooking. Jackie’s sweet, spicy and savoury meatball recipe is an homage, of sorts, to her late father and to the great pride for her Korean heritage that was instilled in her by him.
I was very excited to try these Korean Meatballs and to see M’s reaction to the meatballs. As he is Korean, he would know if they are truly good or not. You can find the Triple ‘S’ Korean Meatballs at any Loblaw store for $6.99 in the frozen section.
Even though the box says there are 21 meatballs, my box had 23. Woot!
The Triple ‘S’ Meatballs is a blend of beef and pork and a combination of sweet, spicy and savoury spices. These meatballs are already fully cooked, so you stick them in the oven just to heat them up. When cooking them, I did find red oil coming out of these meatballs, but when you put them in your mouth, it’s a bit dry.
The level of spice was nice if you like an extra kick in your food. I wasn’t a huge fan of the meatballs, but M did enjoy the taste.
The recipe is on their website here.
