Asian Pork Meatballs Recipes (Look Chin Moo) สูตรลูกชิ้นหมู – Hot Thai Kitchen!


A common street food found all over Thailand. Asian style meatballs or “look chin” are commonly added to noodle soups, or simply skewered, grilled and served with a spicy, sweet dipping sauce. They’re not something most people make at home in Thailand, but for those who are keen on DIY food projects, it’s actually quite easy to make.

Bonus Video: Once you’re ready to make them, I have a bonus video where you can see the meatball squeezing technique over and over again until you get the hang of it. Watch it here:

    Why waste our time indirectly telling us you have a crapping machine? Besides that cool instructions 😍 ask your boyfriend for a machine that works.

  7. Barruga Corazon

    So yummy ma'am 🙂 , I used to eat this when I was working in hk. Can I add tapioca starch ? How's the portion if I make kg of pork ? I wish to sell it cheaper but it has quality taste. Its pandemic so I have to sell it affordable 🙂

    Lockdown recipe. Made these meatballs. However being inventive ( lazy) I did a few hacks.
    Used supermarket sausages for minced pork meat. Cut skins & take meat out.
    Braised meatballs in low sodium veg. stock. The broth is amazing. Cooking rice with the broth. I store meatballs in the broth in fridge.
    TQ🙏 4 meatball making technique. Amazing. Have to get used to it. Great dexterity workout for hands. I'm going to use it 4 Italian meatballs.
    TQ 4 cheering us up during lockdown 🙏

    Hi Pai, Thanks for showing us how to do these meat balls. Can you also add liver(pigs) to these. Our locally made ones I think have a red look about them. May also be red colouring. Thanks again.

  13. gczargc

    Always perfect cooking advice. Thanks 😊

  14. Selina Graffeo

  15. Gem Unson

    Quick meal tip for instant ramen lovers out there who don't want to feel too gross after eating it. Make a bunch of these meatballs or buy commercial ones that don't have too many weird additives and keep them in the freezer. When the craving hits, make your ramen according to package instructions, throw these meatballs in 2 minutes before it's done, crack an egg in and add frozen veggies. Boom, a decent meal!
    What I like to do personally though is water, seasonings, noodles, meatballs, eggs, veggies all in one bowl at the same time, microwave 4-5 mins, stir and devour. If I feel fancy I'd crack an egg in halfway through so I have runny eggs. Gourmet enough imo.

    Hi sister, the recipe to make beef ball is the same ? Really love the ways you talk, your explanation…

  18. Arick Yehros

  20. sowathana Khamphean

    Wow! So simple it is! I am going to do it. Normally I don't trust eating meatball buying from the market. As you said, I have no idea what in there.

  21. KittenSeneca

    Hi Pailin, i am so happpy i can finally made Pork meatballs but some of mine are cracked during the boiling time. Why is that?
    They are good.. thank you for sharing the recipe..

  25. Jeffrey Lam

    Hi Pai, I'm new to your channel. This recipe looks so much fun and, with the squeezing technique video, not extremely difficult, so I can't believe it's only had some 75,000 views. A couple of years ago I wanted to make my own beef balls but I gave up because there were very few recipes out there. Now that I've found out about yours, I'm definitely going to try this soon, especially when I have so much more free time working from home during this pandemic. Greetings from Hong Kong! Stay safe, happy and healthy!

  26. kyle009 00

    i screwed up. i blended everything with water from the tap and put it in the freezer afterward instead of using ice. it's a waste of time, i had to wait 1h. i wish i had watched your video before i do it. your recipe is more convenient

  27. Blue Hearted

    Made these meatballs with chicken today and they tasted absolutely yummy! Loved it.😁🖤😁

  28. Edwin GreBsLrAC

    I tried this but using chicken meat, added some oyster sauce and coriander leaves for seasoning, meant for soup with mushrooms. Omg, it is super bouncy & tastes heavenly. Thank you Ms Pailin, my family is happy.


    Can I try this with chicken


    Being Indian can't get lot of ur stuff in here. Could u plz tell any substitute to the dishes.


    I like ur cooking. Ur cooking technique are very good and helpful.

  32. scchin81

    Made it. Thank you very much!! No where near as nice as yours as I don't have a good processor but it's a start. 🙂

  33. No worries Mate

    Also called puppy balls.

  34. Aidualc Onh

    I work with that food processor at work and they’re so heavy. And they’re like over $1000. But it’s amazing. I have a Nina blender food processor. I hope that’ll work

  35. kunthea sor

    I like your channel. Can you tell me what’s name your machine?

  36. Hien Tunnell

    I have the answer for the problem with the meat lifting the blade,
    because it happened to me and I found out that if your machine for 14 cups
    You can only grind 250 grams meat only or for 11 cups grind 200 gram then you don’t have to clean the machine hope it helps
    I love your video, recipes always comes out perfect 👌 thank you 🙏

  37. Peter Lan

    This is so far the best meat ball that I have cone across.Thank you so much for shRING.

  38. Evilgrin45

    For the dipping sauce try
    Sweet Thai Chile sauce..I usually get Mae Ploy
    A little Linghams Extra Hot sweet chile sauce. About 1 part to 2 parts Mae Ploy….Its a Malaysian sweet chile sauce. Very similar but hotter
    Tiny bit of fish sauce or soy sauce. Maybe a tsp for 2-3 tbs of sweet chile sauce
