1 lb Lean ground beef 1/2 c Grated fresh coconut 2 lg Eggs; beaten 1/4 c Onion; finely chopped 2 Cloves garlic; minced 1 ts Ground coriander 1 ts Brown sugar 1/2 ts Salt 1/4 ts Ground red pepper 1/8 ts Ground black pepper In Indonesia, meatballs usually are fried. We found this baked version to be juicier and more flavorful, as well as lower in fat. Combine ground beef coconut and eggs in a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Form mixture into 1" balls. Place balls on a 15x10x1" baking pan. Bake at 350F 15-18 minutes or till done. Drain. Serve warm with Coconut and Peanut Butter Sauce. Makes 48.
