What Pairs With Sweet And Sour Meatballs
I recently made this for my dinner and had it with a side romaine lettuce and cabbage salad with ranch dressing from Trader Joe’s. I ate it with a simple bowl of Japanese white rice. On another day I varied the dish with udon noodles from my local Japanese food market (frozen package, ready to eat after 1 minute of boiling).
They are so scrumptious and go really well with both rice and noodles, and perhaps even with pasta like linguine or fettuccine. So, you might want to eat more than you would think!
