Today I’m making Itadori’s meatballs from Jujutsu Kaisen. This is a super sweet scene where we see his friends eating a meatball nabe and commending Fushiguro on the delicious taste. He tells them that Itadori taught him how to make the meatballs and they enjoy the meal in a thoughtful silence. Meanwhile, Itadori is eating the same meatball nabe recipe with Gojo and shares how the recipe is so easy that he even taught Fushiguro how to make them.

 

 

The episode ends with a scroll sharing a loose recipe for the special dish. So, I followed it exactly! Unfortunately, it didn’t share any of the measurements so I had to figure it out for myself. To be honest, I wasn’t a huge fan of this recipe. Turns out I don’t much enjoy the taste of ground chicken, which was the main protein they suggested. I even upped all the seasonings to compensate, but the weird chicken flavour stuck around.

 

 

So! I swapped the ground chicken for ground pork, and unsurprisingly the resulting meatballs came out sooo much better! If you really want to use chicken because you like it or just want to stay faithful to the show, go ahead, but you’re missing out on a seriously amazing meatball.

 

 

This dish has actually turned into a staple in our house. It’s so easy to make, relatively quick, healthy, and super cozy especially during the cold months. Highly recommend you try this recipe out, even if you’re not planning to go out and fight evil spirits…

Ingredients
  

For the Meatballs

  • 5 dried shiitake mushrooms 25g, rehydrated and chopped
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 egg
  • 1 inch knob of ginger grated
  • 3 large cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 whole scallions finely chopped
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp white pepper
  • 3 tsp GF soy sauce
  • 4 tsp GF oyster sauce

For the Broth

  • 6 cups dashi broth or water with 3 tsp of instant dashi
  • 4 Tbsp sake
  • 3 Tbsp mirin
  • 4 Tbsp GF soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp white miso

Instructions
 

  • Slice carrots and green onion on a bias (slanted)
  • Add all the broth ingredients (except for the miso!) to a large pot over medium heat, bring to a summer. Muddle in the miso and don't let the broth boil after this point, just simmer.
  • Mix all the meatball ingredients together in a bowl and scoop out balls. I use a cookie dough scooper to make them to same size but you can use spoons.
  • Carefully drop all your meatballs into the broth, cover and allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes. Add in the vegetables, cover and simmer for 5-10 more minutes (depending on the softness of your veggies).
  • Enjoy!
