This series is all about teaching Hanley how to cook. Last time he made a solid tomato and egg dish. Today we're making a Shanghainese meatball that requires a bit of deep frying and a lot of dicing. They're called lion's head meatballs because they kind of look like a Chinese lion, and they require a lot of skill to make Mhm. I'm not excited because I heard this one's gonna be complicated. I got him to buy ground pork, ginger, scallions, napa cabbage, eggs, sugar, breadcrumbs, shushing wine, soy sauce, oyster sauce, corn starch and vegetable oil. Okay, we need to peel the water chestnuts first because you got freaking freshwater and chestnut. This whole back is already in the water, But now I'm, like, actually cutting the nets. So it's like, so it embraces its natural habitat. So the reason why we soaked it is so it's easier to peel This'll what is gonna be hard? Okay, that's pretty good. All right. Okay, Now you're gonna dice it. Super. Finally. Yeah. So don't be so precious with the skinning man. just trouble. Four size. And you think I'm trying to be precious with my skinning Mario? You think I'm trying to be careful not to hurt the chestnut e? Think so, man? I'm a grown ass man. Now you Onley cut 1.5 chestnuts and you're a grown ass man. How many people can say they have cut chestnuts before? More will have you. Have you ever cut chestnuts before? Exactly, bro. You even a man yet? Goddamn your baby boy, man.
