    Julesong's Note:

    Although my mother usually made our Porcupines with a cream sauce, I know that a lot of folks grew up with the tomato-ey kind. Here's another version of the old tried and true favorite for you! An adopted recipe.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the meat, rice, 1/2 cup of water, onion, salt, celery salt (which I don't usually use, but this recipe came this way), garlic powder or minced garlic, and pepper.
    2. 2
      Shape the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls.
    3. 3
      Stovetop cooking method: Heat 1 TBLS of salad oil in a large skillet and cook the meatballs over medium heat until brown. Add remaining ingredients and heat to boiling. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for about 45 minutes.
    4. 4
      Oven cooking method: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place the meatballs in an ungreased baking dish, 8 X 8 X 2-inches. Mix the remaining ingredients and pour over the meatballs. Cover and bake in a 350 degree F. oven for about 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes longer.

      Good, fast, and easy. The only things I would change next time would be to decrease the amount of water in the sauce by at least half as the sauce was too watery for my tastes. I would also add some brown sugar to the sauce as a previous reviewer did. Thanks for posting!

      My family loved this. Made it as it was, but as the UK don't have tomato sauce in cans, I used one small tin of tomato paste and two cups of water. It worked well. Thanks Julesong.

      Very tasty. We used brown rice rather than white & I think if I make it again I will use more tomato sauce...the sauce is delicious.
