    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.

    Made these tonight and loved the flavor. The downside was that my meatballs fell apart, but its possible that I may not be a very good meatball maker. Overall, we loved it. O, since we like spicy food, I opted for the zesty Catalina, don't know if it makes much of a difference but even my kids loved it!!!!

    even stirring the meatballs constantly, they burned a bit. They didnt taste too good either. But the rice flavoring was YUMMY. So I'd make the rice again.
