  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon finely ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup cooked short grain white rice, cooled (rinse it thoroughly before cooking so it doesn’t clump together)
  • 2lbs Grow and Behold Meatball Mix (or use 1lb Ground Beef and 1lb Ground Rose Veal or Ground Lamb)
