  6. If you don't post a recipe for this, I'll die of starvation and it will be your fault!

    Kidding aside, please post the recipe, I'd love to try this; I've never heard of it or seen it done before.

    I have this each time I'm in Detroit.  A local Mexican restaurant makes it very well.  They use whole red potatoes and halved ears of corn.  The first time you get it you have to form a game plan because it looks almost impossible to eat.  That looks great!

    Uncooked rice? Does it get tender?

    firecapt - i don't do recipes but if you look whats there, ya pretty much got it. i will say that there is about 1.5 # ground beef and about 1/2 cup of rice. the rest is just soup so make it how you like it. the main flavor defining ingredients are 1 bunch of cilantro (1/2 in the meatbals and 1/2 in the soup) and about 2 Tbsp of mexican oregano again 1/2 in the soup and 1/2 in the meatballs.

    todd, i would switch the cilantro for basil and orzo for rice.........and make sure the sausage has fennel, dounds good!

    kydave, the rice does fully cook after about 30-40 min in a gentle boil.
