      This was a superb meal! I even tucked into it when it was cold, so delicious! I processed the meat again to make it finer and softer and I used vegetable broth for the tomato sauce otherwise I kept to the ingredients exactly. A beautiful flavour with the fresh mint and parsley, very, very tasty. Thanks for posting, this was a hit with everyone!

      This was awesome! I look forward to some leftovers. I followed the recipe pretty closely, but the rice wasn't fully cooked by the time it was ready. I would recommend soaking the rice for an additional five minutes or so.

      I made this last night and it was excellent. I did a few things differently. I doubled the meat and baked them in the oven. Froze a pan so that I'll have them for later. I couldn't find oregano so I substituted dill. And I didn't have the mint. I used leftover rice and put in at least a cup per pound, maybe a little more. I used Del Monte diced tomatoes; highly recommend that brand. Next time, I will try it with the ingredients listed. But even with my changes, it was delicious. I was looking for an alternative to the simple Jeff Smith/Frugal gourmet recipe. This far exceeded my expectation.
