This Four-Joy Meatball dish looks really delicious. I'm not sure if this is the same recipe but with a different name, but there's a dish that seems similar to this one called something like the lion's mane. It's made with three meatballs with a sauce poured over it. Does that description sound familiar to you? It sounded absolutely delicious and I've wanted to try it ever since my Chinese friend told me about it. This recipe seems really similar to the one my friend told me about. I'm sure that this meatball recipe will be just as delicious as the one my friend told me about.
