This Mama Loves Teriyaki Meatball Rice Bowls!

Posted by | Della Rice Bloggers, Della Rice Contests, Della Rice Stir Recipes | No Comments

This Mama Loves Teriyaki Rice Bowl Stir 2The talented blogger behind This Mama Loves, Brett, shares with us today her recipe for Teriyaki-Glazed Meatballs over delicious Della Jasmine Rice.  It appears that Brett cooked her meatballs to perfection and then rolled them in a teriyaki glaze that looks oh-so-yummy! She then topped the glazed meatballs over rice and garnished with sliced water chestnuts, chopped green onions, and sesame seeds – yum!

What I love most about this recipe is how easy and accessible it is for everyone to make. She used common ingredients – ingredients that most of us already have in our kitchens. Plus, Brett reinvented how to make the meatballs (meatballs don’t just have to be for Italian dishes) and basically made an Asian-style rice dish with zing!

Check out Brett’s full post, Teriyaki Rice Bowl Recipe, on her blog and then get busy cooking!  The question, “What’s for dinner tonight,” has been solved!

Oh, and if you want to win a rice cooker (we are giving away 50 of them you know!), enter here.  It’ll make this recipe even easier to make!
