Recipe Description

Makes 6 servings.


  • 1 pound lean ground Beef
  • 1 1/2 cups fine dry breadcrumbs, divided
  • 1/2 cup minced Onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups hot cooked rice


Combine Beef, 1-1/4 cups breadcrumbs, Onion, garlic powder, pepper and eggs. Shape into 18 balls 2 inches in diameter. Bring broth to a boil in large saucepan. Drop meat balls in broth and cook 15 to 20 minutes; lift meat balls out with slotted spoon and set aside. Stir remaining 1/4 cup breadcrumbs into broth.
