1 1/2 pounds
lean ground beef
1 (4.4 ounce) package
Spanish rice and sauce mix
This was so good! Reminded me of a dish my mom made with rice and beef and she called them Porcupine Balls. It was a Sunday Dinner hit!
I followed the directions precisely, and the rice stayed just as crunch as it was when I poured it out of the box. My family ate it the first night, then refused to touch it again. Next time I'll try preparing the rice before adding it, if my family will give it another chance.
This was a nice change from my regular meat loaf. The rice added a nice texture. There wasn't a lot of flavor though and next time I think I will add some additional spice to give it a little more kick.
Also, some of my rice on the edges got crunchy. This may be because I didn't bake it in a loaf pan. If I do make again I will try a loaf pan to see if it helps.
My husband and 14 month old both seemed to like it a lot and neither noticed the crunch rice.
this was so aweful, i will never have this again!!! add a little spaghetti sauce, and a dash of seasoning salt, maybe then...
Way too dry and tasteless.
A little on the bland side (easily spiced up tho') -but it is the only meatloaf my daughter will eat, and that makes it a winner in this house.
I made this last night and while it had very good flavor it was too dry, although I made it exactly as recipe indicated.I think it needs some liquid added to it. I will definately make this again adding a cup or so of tomato juice. My nine year old son loved it and he hates meatloaf.
My sister used to make something similar with the canned spanish rice (that we haven't been able to finad in Arkansas/Oklahoma anymore for some reason). She just mixed it & the meat, covered it with golden mushroom soup, I loved it! I made the packaged rice, chopped onion, one egg, garlic powder, salt & pepper. I put a thin layer of salsa on top, then the golden mushroom & added cheese the last few minutes...it was good, but not my favorite, my husband really liked it though.
