I have a similar recipe that adds onions and eliminates the water chestnuts. It also makes a lot more sauce, which I missed with this recipe. I didn't have enough sauce for my rice.....so I advise everyone to increase the amount of sauce in relation to the meatballs and veggies. I really enjoyed the water chestnuts....I think it added a bit to the recipe. The seasoning is very nice in this....thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag.

I ate these for 2 nights in a row and still haven't gotten tired of it. The chestnuts not incorporated in the burger seems new to me but nevertheless it still gave this dish a crunchy feel. I also used jicama (a sub for water chestnuts) since didn't have the wchestnuts available in our groceries here. Thanks!

I made this as stated except I used two egg whites instead of the egg. I cooked my meatballs in my steamer in the microwave to avoid some of the fat. I omited the water chestnuts. Served with leftover take away fried rice with peas and carrots added. Great dinner.
