How to Make Porcupine Meatballs

Step-by-Step

  1. Mix ground chuck, salt and pepper, onion and rice. Form into walnut sized meatballs and brown in olive oil in skillet. Drain and set aside.
  2. In stockpot, mix tomatoes, tomato juice, and worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and drop about 5 meatballs in at a time. When all the meatballs are in, reduce heat to a simmer and cook 45 minutes. Stir only occasionally and carefully as not to break apart meatballs.
  3. We like to serve the meatballs and sauce on a big 'ol pile of mashed potatoes and a side of green beans. The rice cooks and sticks out of the meatballs, resembling a "porcupine".
