Why is the amount of worcestershire sauce and brown sugar needed not in the recipe???
This recipe is elevated from a 4 star to a 5 star with the following tweaks.... First, I only use 1/4 c water in the meat mixture, and add an egg to help bind the ingredients when mixing - otherwise they tend to fall apart. I use a quick rice. Also, I microwave the onion in a tsp of water for 1.5 minutes before mixing in with rest of ingredients. Most importantly, I make 1.5 times the sauce by increasing all of the ingredients by 1.5 except the water, which I leave at 1c. (I use Italian seasoned tomato sauce.) This way we have plenty of sauce, as we like to enjoy this dish over mashed potatoes. PS: Remember to cover the dish while cooking or your rice may not get done! (I made this mistake the first time I made them many years ago.)
Awesome recipe! Super good!.....for those who have crunchy rice....uniform meatball size (try using a cookie scoop) and/or forgetting the water are your likely culprits. This will work very well every time as written.
Tripled the recipe for a family dinner and it tasted so good. I used what we had at home so the sauce was a jar or spaghetti sauce and tomato paste with equal parts water. Then we also added two eggs. They were awesome. Would make again.
I always make mine in a crockpot. I thought, last minute, I wanted this and gave it a try. Sorry, was not happy. It looked odd, to not have an egg to hold together, but I gave it a shot.
Great recipe...will be making these more often for the grand babies.
I had some doubts while making this recipe exactly as directed as the meatballs were a bit mushy (might use less water next time) and a bit difficult to saute but after cooking them in the sauce, they were fantastic!! Anything you would like to add to the sauce will be absorbed by the rice and increase the flavor (garlic, hot sauce, a bit of parmesian). The other half and a guest (unexpected) raved about them and asked for seconds. This is definitely on my regular rotation for meals. Thank you so much for the recipe!!
Didn't turn out well. IF I ever make these again I will omit the water in the meatballs cause they fell apart. I will also omit the sugar, a little too sweet
I followed this recipe except I used 1 can campbells soup, a small can of tomato sauce and omitted the sugar. Turned out delicious. I will make again.
I make this in my pressure cooker. No frying. Delicious
