Ratings & Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am not a fan of green olives and was hesitant to try this recipe but what a wonderful surprise. I am not a fan of green olives and was hesitant to try this recipe but what a wonderful surprise. These meatballs are great and so good with couscous. I would never have thought of using the two togther. My husband has to closely watch his vitamin K intake but this fit perfectly in his diet. Please give this recipe a try you will like it. Oh, makes lots so I froze some for later use and they reheated perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a crowd pleaser! What a crowd pleaser! Even my three and five-year-old cleaned their plates! Don't worry about the green olives with kids, they weren't overwhelming. In fact, my kids didn't even notice them. I used extra-lean ground beef to save on calories and fat, but you wouldn't be able to tell the dish was light.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from These meatballs are just ok. These meatballs are just ok. I used beef, doubled the oregano and the garlic and they still didn't have much of a flavor. I did like the hint of green olive flavor and will make them again but with a lot more spice.
