Blue Apron: Ginger Pork Meatballs with Yakiniku Sauce and Green Beans

Last night, we made another delicious Blue Apron meal.  After receiving our delivery, the hardest part is always deciding which recipe to make first.   We finally selected Ginger Pork Meatballs.  While Mike was prepping the produce, I started by adding rice, water, and salt to a small pot and brining it to a boil, cooking it for about 12 minutes.  Once the radishes were sliced, I put them in a bowl with vinegar, sesame oil, salt, and pepper and let them marinate for 10 minutes.  Next, I made the meatballs by mixing ground pork, ginger, breadcrumbs, sesame oil, salt and pepper.  Using a portion scoop, I formed the mixture into 12 meatballs, setting them aside on a plate.  I heated up olive oil in a non stick pan and cooked the meatballs about 2 minutes on each side, until they were cooked through.  Then, I added in the green beans and a little more salt and pepper, cooking them about 2 minutes.  I drained the marinade from the radishes, saving the liquid.  I added the marinade, yakiniku sauce, salt and pepper to the pan and cooked another 2 minutes until the sauce thickened.  I finished the meal by plating with rice, the meatball/green bean mixture, and garnishing with radishes.  Dinner was served!  It was so good!  I have discover that I like-maybe even love radishes.  I think the marinade made them so delicious.  The meatballs were also amazing.  They had excellent flavor from the ginger and sesame oil. This was definitely a meal I'd be happy to repeat.  I have no doubt that we will be making this again in the future.
