zOMG, this is AWESOME. The only bad thing about it is that you want to devour all of them!! They are actually TOO tasty! My husband and son raved like lunatics. Good stuff.

My 9 yr old son loved the balls. I put in a little BBQ to sweeten it up. Very easy to make.

Made these for dinner tonight, my family loved them. I served over whole wheat pasta and had broccoli on the side. Made my sauce from scratch with chopped whole tomatos, beef stock, red peppers, garlic, onion and mushrooms. YUMMY!

I was surprised at how good they were... was worried about the rice not cooking, but it was perfect!
