CHOOSING A GOOD GARLIC

When it comes to cooking with garlic, you have several different options. Choosing the one that best suits you is very important

Most importantly, however, is choosing the option that will give you the best garlic taste for the dish at hand.

FRESH GARLIC

Of course, the best choice for garlic is to use fresh garlic you mince yourself. This is by far the most work intensive choice, since it requires skinning the cloves and then mincing them.

However, there truly is no substitute for fresh garlic when cooking. The taste isn’t quite as strong as the type in the jar, but it is often a hint of a richer, sweeter taste.

JARRED GARLIC

Next on the list is the minced garlic in a jar. This garlic is often found right next to the fresh garlic, but provides a pre-minced option that is ready to use right out of the gate.

To be honest, this is the kind of garlic we use a lot, since time is often an issue.

The jar is also full of oil, which helps to keep the garlic fresher for longer. It is stored in the refrigerator for up to several weeks, and makes for an incredibly convenient source of garlic.

Jarred garlic is not quite as flavorful as fresh, but it still offers that nice garlic taste you are looking for.

POWDERED GARLIC

Last, but not least, there is the powdered garlic option. While not the best option, it is certainly the one most people have already sitting in their cabinet or pantry.

The bad news is, powdered garlic can often have added ingredients that can work against a low-carb lifestyle. These normally include, or are limited to anti-caking agents that keep the garlic powder from sticking together.

Anti-caking agents contain carbs, though in small amounts, but are not recommended if they can be avoided.

Make sure to check whatever garlic powder you buy for added ingredients before selecting it!

STORING LEFTOVER ASIAN MEATBALLS

There are two main methods by which you should reheat your meatball leftovers. We quickly discuss both of these methods below so you can enjoy your leftovers for another meal!

IN THE OVEN

The best (though not the quickest) way to reheat your meatballs is in the oven. Using an oven to reheat meat is the best way since it heats slower. This helps to not dry out the meat and helps the meat be more juicy.

Preheat your oven to 350˚F and place whatever leftovers you want to reheat inside. Heat for 10 minutes before removing to check the temperature of the leftovers. Continue to heat until the desired temperature is reached.

IN THE MICROWAVE

The obvious method is to use the microwave. It will get the meatballs warm quickly and you’ll be ready to eat in no time. However, anytime you microwave meat, you are running the risk of making the meat tough and drying it out.

Microwave your leftovers in 30 second increments until they reach your desired temperature. Eat and enjoy!

REHEATING KETO ASIAN MEATBALLS

Storing your leftover Asian meatballs is super easy and simple!

As we always suggest, use glass storage containers for containers that are not only versatile, but can be used in the oven as well.

Obviously, you can use whatever storage containers you may have on hand.

Place the leftovers into the refrigerator where they can stay for 3 – 4 days. If you don’t eat them within that time frame, it’s probably best to discard them.
