Porcupine Meatballs (Stove Top)

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by MollyJ

This comes from a friend's church cookbook. It's a fast, family friendly meal and the little meatballs do have rice sticking out making them look somewhat porcupine-ish. I offer this recipe for those of us who would rather whip out a fast week-night supper on the stove top.

Made this the other night for company and it was quite good. I did add about 1 large clove of garlic minced and some oregano to the meat and a little in the sauce. At first I thought the sauce wasn't going to thicken but I was wrong...it was perfect. Company enjoyed the meal with noodles and a green salad with Recipe#289388#289388 to top the salad. Thank you. Made for SPRING PAC 2010.

  1. Combine meat, rice, egg, onion, salt and pepper and 1/4 cup of the condensed soup.
  2. Mix thoroughly.
  3. Shape in about 20 small balls and place in a skillet.
  4. Mix remaining soup, water and Worcestershire Sauce and pour over meatballs.

  6. I have used a 14 oz can of tomato sauce to substitute for the condensed soup with good success.
