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.
I did not like this recipie. Sorry
THis was good. I added fresh oregano to the meatballs. I too think maybe more egg yolk to the sauce. I added a bit to much lemon...tangy, but good. Thanks for this easy, and yummy recipe.
Nice tang from the lemon - I didn't get much comment from DH - he was too busy eating!! I might want to add an additional egg yolk but that would be it. Thanks!
Yes, the meatballs were a bit loose. Yes, the sauce was more like a broth but OOHLALA YUM!!! My 2 little kids & I gobbled up the entire recipe in record time!!!
This was something pleasently different, but not so different that your picky eaters wouldn't like it. The meatballs themselves are a bit looser than most meatballs you might be used to, but they still hold together. The sauce is more broth like than sauce like. I added a tablespoon of cornstarch dissolved in a tiny bit of cold broth and added it at the very end of the cooking.
