I got this recipe from the Divine Bite web site. Please visit the site at http://divinebite.com/1/post/2011/02/porcupine-meatballs.html
I have been making these Porcupine meatballs for along time and my kids love them.
- 1lb ground beef
- ½ cup uncooked white rice (not instant)
- 1½ cups water
- 1/3 cup onion, finely chopped
- 1 tsp celery salt
- ½ tsp garlic powder
- 1 (15oz)can tomato soup
- ½ tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
Mix ground beef, rice, ½ cup water, onion, celery salt, garlic powder and mix well. Shape into approximately 18 balls. Cook meatballs in a large skillet with a lid on medium high heat until lightly browned on all sides. Drain fat from skillet.
Mix tomato soup, 1 cup water and Worcestershire. Pour tomato mixture over meatballs and heat to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
**Be sure you do not use instant rice or brown rice…..trust me**
**You can substitute 15oz can tomato sauce for soup, but the soup gives it something special**
**Add additional water or soup during cooking if needed**
