Porcupine Balls

This is a recipe I got from my mother-in-law. It's a favorite at our house!

1 can (10 1/2 oz) condensed tomato soup
1 lb ground beef
1/4 cup uncooked rice
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/4 cup minced onion
2 TBSP minced parsley (I just use about a tablespoon of parsley flakes)
1 tsp salt
1 small clove garlic, minced (or squeezed using a garlic press)
2 TBSP shortening
1 cup water

Mix 1/4 cup soup with beef, rice, egg, onion, parsley & salt. Shape into meatballs. In a large skillet (I use an electric one) coat bottom with shortening and then spread garlic over the top. Brown the meatballs in the shortening/garlic mixture and then cover with remaining soup and water (mixed together). Cover and simmer for 40 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir often.

  1. We really like these ones... I don't cook with a lot of ground beef so this is one of the few recipes I make with it!
