This ‘red’ version of Lion’s Head Meatballs is stewed in soy sauce and chicken stock which results in a darker coloured dish. The large size of the meatball is said to resemble the head of the lion with the surrounding wombok representing the mane. Meatballs are pan-fried then stewed until they are fully infused with the stock and soy sauce. When served with rice, this Chinese dish evokes the warmest of childhood memories.
