Porcupine Meatballs

I wish I had a better picture of my beloved meatballs! The darn things would not come in to focus. Oh how we LOVE these meatballs. They are one of my top 5 favorite meals of all time, no kidding! You will be amazed just how easy they really are. If you have heard of the Lion House, (probably Lion House rolls), then you know that this recipe is going to be good. So trust me, trust Lion House, and try these meatballs!

Porcupine Meatballs
slightly adapted from Lion House

1 to 1 1/4 lb ground LEAN beef *I like to use lean in meatloaf and meatballs
1/3 c uncooked rice
1/2  c finely diced onion
1/4 c water
1/2 tsp salt
Dash pepper
2 can tomato soup (condensed)
1 tsp chili powder
1 c water

Combine beef, rice, onion, 1/4 c water, salt, and peper. Shape into one inch balls. Makes around 15-18. In a large skillet blend soups, chili powder and 1 c water and bring to a boil. Add meatballs to skillet. Cover, turn down heat a bit, and simmer gently for 1 hr. I like to peek on them occasionally, but you don't need to even stir. Serve over rice!!!



I've always meant to try these. They look delicious, in focus or not. haha. Thanks for another great recipe to add to the recipe box. :)

Well there they are... the little beauties! Glad you cooked them up right! (I can totally relate to the focus picture thing. I'm wishing for a nice camera- I know it would make a difference, but I have to make do. :) And glad you found my blog in the process! I'll definitely have to add a link to your fun blog on mine. You've got some great practical recipes going on! I'll be back!


Oh I gotta try these out. I usually think I got a good picture and then it is blurry. It makes me so mad.

The meatballs look yummy! You have a lot of nice recipes on here that I must check out. I am a new follower of your blog and hope that you will stop by our blog soon!



Thanks for visiting my site! I think you'll love the triple strawberry cheesecake - with the amount of fruit / puree infused through the cheesecake, it's definitely a bit more guiltfree =) I love this porcupine recipe - I've never tried making meatballs this way, but it's on the menu for next week! Look forward to following your blog.
