Porcupine Meatballs image

Beef, raw rice, onion and Italian seasoning come together in this simple weeknight dinner of porcupine meatballs. Where'd the name come from? While the meatballs bake, the grains of rice pop out and look incredibly similar to porcupine quills. Simmer the meatballs in a quick homemade tomato sauce for a delicious, family-friendly dish.

Time 1h20m

Yield 4 to 6 servings

Number Of Ingredients 11

1 pound ground beef, preferably 80/20 (80 percent lean)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 small onion, finely diced
1/2 cup long-grain white rice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, plus more for serving
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
One 28-ounce can tomato puree
1/4 cup ketchup


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Use your hands to mix the ground beef, egg, onion, rice, parsley, 1/2 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon of the garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper in a large bowl until well combined. Roll the meat mixture into 24 balls (each about 2 heaping tablespoons and 1 inch in diameter).
  • Heat the olive oil in a large, high-sided oven-proof skillet over medium-high heat. Once shimmering, add the meatballs and cook until lightly browned on all sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium, then stir in the tomato puree, ketchup, remaining 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning, remaining 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and several grinds of pepper until the sauce is combined and meatballs are well coated.
  • Cover with a tight-fitting lid and transfer to the oven. Bake until the meatballs are cooked through and no longer pink, the rice is tender and poking out and the sauce has reduced slightly, about 50 minutes. Carefully remove from the oven and top with more chopped parsley.

Great meatballs that have rice in them, and are simmered in a tomato-Worcestershire sauce. Definitely a kid pleaser; these were my all time favorites as a kid, and are to my kids now! All you have to do is cook up a vegetable to go on the side and you have a complete meal.

Insert the pretzel sticks into the dough balls and fill the empty spaces with M&M's Minis. Bake 2 sheets of the cookies until they are lightly browned by still soft in the middle, about 15 minutes, shifting the baking sheets from top to bottom and front to back halfway through. Let the cookies cool on the pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining baking sheet, rotating the sheet halfway through baking. Serve warm or cooled.
