    Julesong's Note:

    This afternoon I was trying to decide what to make for dinner, and suddenly I found myself craving good old porcupine meatballs. But I couldn't make plain meatballs, no sir! Here's the recipe I made up, and it came out wonderfully well. An adult update of one of our childhood favorites. Very tasty!

      Note: To make caraway powder, use a mortar and pestle to crush caraway seed into powder. Also, don't use a pearl or other thick rice for this, or it won't cook well inside the meatballs - converted rice (not "instant") is what I use.

      This was a delicious twist on plain porcupine meatballs. I followed the recipe exactly except for the soup. I don't like cream of mushroom & normally substitute cream of celery. For some reason, I couldn't find that, so I used cream of pumpkin instead with great results & empty plates! Thanks for sharing, I'll be making this again & again :-)

      Definitely a sophisticated version of the porcupine meatballs my husband loves.(With tomato soup) He likes this version even better. I made half of the recipe of meatballs, but made all of the sauce. Will make this again and again!

      I found this recipe to be very good, but I would suggest using converted rice instead of regular rice. When I made the porcupine balls, some of my rice was undercooked.
