Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare rice according to package directions.
  2. Drain 1/2 cup crushed pineapple for meatballs. Reserve remaining pineapple and juice for sauce.
  3. Combine ground turkey or chicken, cooked rice, 1/2 cup pineapple, 1/2 cup green onions, 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce, egg, ginger and nutmeg in large bowl. Mix well.
  4. Scoop mixture and gently roll into desired meatball size (we suggest about the size of a golf ball); place meatballs on aluminum foil-lined baking sheet with sides. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until meatballs are done.
  5. While meatballs are baking, to make sauce, combine remaining pineapple and juice, remaining 1/4 cup teriyaki sauce and orange marmalade in medium saucepan; heat to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in remaining 1/4 cup green onions.
  6. Top cooked meatballs with sauce.

Lesson: Do NOT used undercooked rice. Oops! It absorbed all the moisture from the meat so the meatballs were D.R.Y. and coulda used a lil salt. The sauce was amazing though..I reduced it to make it thicker and the ginger and nutmeg MAKE it!

We loved this recipe! YUMMY! I used ground chicken and made a couple changes. I did not use the marmalade in the sauce (we like our sauce a little more spicy than sweet). Instead, I put in two Tbsp. spicy barbecue sauce and I also added some fresh garlic into the sauce. It turned out great. I didn't have minute rice, so I just cooked some regular brown rice and used 2 cups of cooked rice. That's probably less than 2 cups of uncooked minute rice, but the meatballs turned out moist and firm--not crumbly at all!

We made these for a football game and love them. The flavors mend well together and we plan to have them again. Followed the recipe as stated. Great, great recipe! Five stars!
