Ingredients

Meatballs: 
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 bag Townhouse Flip-Sides, pulverized
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 shallots, chopped
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 small jalapeno, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Asian hot sauce, such as Sriracha
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
Vinaigrette:
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon agave
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 avocado, diced small
  • 1 head Bibb lettuce

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

For the meatballs: In a bowl, mix the pork, Flip-Sides, soy sauce, cilantro, shallots, egg, jalapeno, hot sauce, lemon zest, salt and pepper. Form the mixture into small meatballs, about 2 to 3 inches in diameter, and set aside.

Heat the olive oil in a saute pan, and, working in batches, fry the meatballs until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Finish them in the oven for another 10 minutes.

While the meatballs are in the oven, make the vinaigrette: Whisk the lemon and lime juice with the mustard and agave. Add the fish sauce, fresh herbs and avocado. Whisk until the avocado breaks down just a bit and everything is incorporated.

Pull the meatballs from the oven and serve on lettuce cups, garnished with the vinaigrette.
