      This recipe intrigued me, as it was something that is unique to me, and sounded very appealing. It did not disappoint! I made this exactly as posted, using arborio rice, which worked out just fine. Although adding the 1/4 cup of beef stock to the meat mixture made it a little moister than I was comfortable with, the meatballs ended up holding together fine. After reading other reviews, I anticipated that the sauce would be very thin, so I added cornstarch to the yolk mixture, which thickened the sauce nicely. The lemon really brightened up the flavor and the end result was a lovely dinner enjoyed by all! Made by a Tasty Tester for ZWT9.
