    This is one of my favorite recipes! The meatballs come out perfect every time. I prefer to use ground pork. I find the meat to rice ratio a little off so I always double the carrot rice recipe & find it's the perfect amount. The recipe makes enough for my husband & I (with just enough leftovers for lunch the next day)! The asian condiment flavors do mask the meat flavor but that's what I like about it. The meatballs are extra delicious with a generous squirt of lime juice!

    Our family really enjoyed this; even my picky 8 year old had seconds! I agree, a sauce would be nice with this - we just used plum sauce we had on hand. I definitely would reduce the salt, but other than that - a great, healthy meal!

    I love this recipe. I make a sauce for the meatballs using: Fresh ginger or ginger preserve, orange juice or orange marmalade, cocktail sauce, rice wine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, and cayenne pepper. After the meatballs are browned on all sides, I remove them from the pan and add the sauce ingredients. Bring to a boil, then add the meatballs and toss to coat.

    I loved how easy and tasty this recipe is! It was a tad too sweet so I'd cut the sugar back to 3 tsp. and skip the carrots in the rice. Otherwise, a new go-to quick meal.

    I thought this recipe was great. If you like vietnamese food, you'll love this. I agree with the other comment and would watch the salt, maybe use just 1 teaspoon. The other commentor was correct, that you do not taste the meat, but I loved the sesonings. Great meatballs go a long way towards flavoring your rice.

    The seasonings were too strong for me. Very sweet, salty, and umami for me. I felt like I couldn't really taste the meat. I would try to make this again but I would shape them into patties.
