Lion’s head meatballs: Oversized meatballs

This is another giant food dish. The big meatball is supposed to represent a lion’s head, while the surrounding cabbage resemble a lion’s mane. In various regions of China, there are sauces on the side that will complement the meatiness. Beyond the symbolism, it’s pretty much exactly how you think it will taste–pork meatball flavor.

Fun fact: This dish is quite popular in Shanghai cuisine.

    My husband taught me to make Lion’s Head. I haven’t made it for a long time. Thanks for reminding me.
