Meatballs are an all-time favorite dish of people from around the world. Though it is usually made by combining ground meat, herbs, and seasonings, each and every territory features unique culinary techniques. In fact, many countries include this dish in their historical cuisines.

The earliest recipe of meatballs dates back to the Qin Dynasty (221 BC to 207 BC) in China. Apicius, the ancient Roman cookbook, includes many meatball recipes.

In the Philippines, this is called bola-bola, which literally translates to balls. Pork is the meat commonly used in making it. They are also relatively small because parents have to budget the meal for the entire family.

  • You must cook one meatball first then adjust. In case, it’s salty, you can add vegetables or meat. Don’t add water or flour.
  • This is also good for other meats like chicken and beef.
