In a 2-quart saucepot, heat vinegar and 1⁄4 cup water to simmering on medium. Remove from heat; add jicama and carrots. Let vegetable mixture cool completely.
Meanwhile, heat grill on medium. In food processor, pulse mint, garlic, shallot, lemongrass and fish sauce until finely chopped, stopping and scraping occasionally. Transfer to a medium bowl along with pork and 1 tablespoon Sriracha; mix just until well combined. Divide and shape into 16 meatballs.
