Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a delicious recipe, with a few moderations. This is a delicious recipe, with a few moderations. I leave out the carrots first of all... do not like them at all in this recipe. Also, I crumble up the beef mixture sometimes and fry that like you would regular ground beef except stirring it a little more because it has the cheese and other shakenbake. I also sometimes use bbq sauce instead of catalina. YUM! Thats my family's favorite. I have made this recipe probably about 20 times now and will continue to do so!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was delicious! This was delicious! The carrots made the meatballs. For those of you who had problems, make sure you grate the carrots fine like the fancy cheese blends. I used regular brown rice instead of minute rice and cooked it in a seperate saucepan. I added the meatballs to rice pan because the skillet looked greasy. Because my rice was already cooked, I omitted the water. Next time I will add a little more dressing to the rice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well this was a good start to make something delicious. Well this was a good start to make something delicious. I added mushrooms, onions and milk into the meatballs; to make sure they stick together better. The sauce was too tangy with just the dressing and soysauce, so i added honey, and a tiny bit of brown sugar to give it some sweetness. And at the end i threw the meatballs into a separate pan to give it a quick cook with bbq sauce.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wasn't a fan of this recipe and I have a feeling it was the Catalina dressing. I wasn't a fan of this recipe and I have a feeling it was the Catalina dressing. The meatballs themselves were very tasty (I use ground turkey instead of beef) but the rice had a very different flavor. I used instant brown rice so maybe that had something to do w/the taste. Overall, I would make the meatballs again but pass on the rice/catlina mixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! Fantastic! Loads of flavor. Next time, I will use less carrots though (maybe 1/2 cup) and I'm going to try using ground turkey. I bought matchstick carrots from the store and I ran my knife through them to mince (was easier than shredding whole carrots). Only downside-I had to cook it for a few more mins than suggested for the rice to be tender.

I had to give this recipe only a "very good" because some of my family only liked it a little bit. However, me and one of my sons LOVED it, and I will definitely make it again. I had no problem keeping my meatballs together, even using lean beef. AND, I substituted boil-in-a-bag rice (b/c it was all I had) and just cut down on the water a bit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was a great recipe for supper! This was a great recipe for supper!! I also used ground turkey as one other cook and the flavor was amazing!!I had no problem keeping the meatballs together- I do think that you have to monitor texture of mixure as you're adding ingredients to see how they will stick together.Will definately make again for hubby and 3 y.o.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We have a large household of eight, so I double the recipe and do it in the oven. We have a large household of eight, so I double the recipe and do it in the oven. Bake the meatballs at 350 degrees about 30 min until browned and then cover with rice and pour on the liquids. Cover and bake another 30 minutes. The kids really like it and we usually serve salad and steamed veggies to make it healthier.
