"These tasty meatballs are easy to make. Wonderful for your Chinese New Year celebration or as an addition to a holiday buffet. Some folks dye the glutinous rice with red or green for a holiday touch. Another serving idea is to whisk together 1/4 cup soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, and garlic to taste and sprinkle over the meatballs, rice, and some steamed vegetables."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Excellent recipe! Tastes like the ones I get in Chinatown.
great recipe! I made this recipe without the onion (bf doesn't like onions), but everything else as written and it turned out great with good flavor. it's hard to find good Chinese food out here in Colorado, so I was glad to find this recipe so I can at least make some good Chinese at home. thanks for the recipe!
I made this recipe for a Chinese Lunar New Year party and they disappeared in minutes. Everyone loved them! I didn't have fresh ginger or garlic on hand, so I used powdered. I also substituted dry sherry for Chinese rice wine, but they tasted just like the ones you get in a restaurant. I'm definitely making these again!
