“This is a low glycemic index recipe, as far as I can tell, as that is how I eat. I think it should be suitable for diabetics, please someone let me know if it isn't. I didn't want to fry the meatballs as I wasn't feeling well, so I did something new for me and simmered them instead. They came out with a very nice texture, I hope it works for you as well. My so-particular husband took two helpings, which is a good sign.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix pork mince, egg, kumera, soy sauce and rolled oats together in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in your largest, lidded, pot.
  3. Fry onion, garlic, ginger, and chili for about one minute.
  4. Add remaining ingredients except for the peanut butter and half of the salt so you can adjust later.
  5. Simmer this sauce for about 5 minutes.
  6. Use the pork mixture to make meatballs about the size of a small egg, and place them carefully on top of the simmering sauce. Use a spoon to make sure they all have some sauce poured over them.
  7. Simmer with the lid on for about 30 minutes while checking and stirring very gently once or twice.
  8. Add peanut butter by using some of the sauce to thin it down before pouring it into the pot.
  9. Taste and add remaining salt if needed.
  10. Serve with salad.
