porcupine meatball recipe

You will need (makes 20 meatballs, prep and cook time about 1 hour)

  • 1 lb ground beef (I used 93% lean)
  • 1/4 cup raw  rice (yes hard and uncooked)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch or pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 (10  ounce) can tomato sauce  (spaghetti sauce)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

In a bowl combine:

  • 1 lb ground beef (i used 93% lean)
  • 1/4 cup raw  rice (yes hard and uncooked)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup finely diced green bell pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch or pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Mix well and ad to a large skillet (try to use one with 2 inch sides so it does not bubble over)  Form balls or use a scoop to make 20 1 inch meatballs.

Cook meatballs on medium heat in pan for 1-2 minutes on each side. (total cook time of about 2-3 minutes)

Turn heat down to low,  and ad

  • 1 (10  ounce) can tomato sauce  (spaghetti sauce)
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Place a lid on pot (make sure you cover them) and simmer on LOW for 45 minutes or till rice is cooked all the way thru.  Stir a few times to prevent burning, and if need ad a bit more water if sauce gets to thick.  Hope you enjoy!
