Skillet Turkey Meatballs with Lemony Rice
A smack of citrus provides a wake-up call for this easy, one-pan weeknight supper.
Why This Recipe Works
This easy, thrifty one-pot supper readily feeds four. Browning the meatballs in the skillet kicks off their cooking and also creates flavorful brown bits—called fond—in the skillet. Toasting the rice with garlic and scallion in the same skillet makes the most of this fond. After returning the meatballs to the pan, we add a carefully measured amount of stock to ensure that the meatballs and rice are cooked at the same time. With the addition of lemon to both the meatballs and the cooking liquid, the entire dish has a bright lemon flavor.
