Meatballs - with Mint and Coriander

I (heavily) adapted this recipe to create a fresh-tasting alternative to the Italian trap I so frequently fall into when beef mince is to be the meat of the day. I've made it three or four times since, and I love it. Haki is not so fussed on these flavours, or this particular variation, but he eats it without complaint.

500g minced beef
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
1 tablespoon fish sauce / oyster sauce (I've used both)
2 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon torn mint leaves
1 tablespoon torn coriander leaves

  1. Mix well.
  2. Roll into balls.
  3. Shallow fry in sesame oil. (I haven't grilled them yet, myself, but they sure would be better for us if I would.)
Serve with (what I've chosen has varied each time)...
