This recipe should make about 25 to 30 meatballs. Make sure to use the special meatball strainer tool for this kind of meatball fondue. These items (as shown on the right) can be found in most Asian grocery stores.
Make sure that the tool you use will easily fit into your fondue pot and won't become a safety hazard for your guests!
Don't forget to prepare at least three dips to accompany your fondue meatballs.
