Sesame Pork Meatballs

I found this idea a bit interesting, but had no doubt that the flavor would be amazing.  And I was right!  These meatballs are absolutely wonderful!  They're super tender, juicy, flavorful and simply delicious!  I served ours with some broccoli rice and a green salad.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-cooking spray
-1 small onion, finely chopped
-2 baby carrots, finely shredded
-1 lb ground pork
-salt and pepper, to taste
-1 tsp dried parsley flakes
-3 Tbs Italian style bread crumbs
-1 egg
-1/4 cup sesame seeds (NOT toasted)
-oil for frying
Directions:
Coat large skillet with cooking spray.  Add onion and carrots and cook until translucent (about 5 minutes).  Add ground pork and season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle the parsley flakes.  Add the bread crumbs and stir until well combined.  Once pork is cooked through, remove mixture from heat.  Cool enough to handle with your hands.
Add the egg and mix with your hands.  Form meatballs and roll them through sesame seeds.  Place in hot oil and fry for a couple of minutes or until nice and golden brown.  Drain on paper towels and serve hot.  Enjoy!
