recipe for porcupine balls

Porcupine Balls
I never like to turn my oven on in the summer, so this is a favorite dinner in the summer that I can make without turning on the oven! So grab your ingredients and make some yummy skillet dinner!
1 lb. hamburger
1/2 c. uncooked regular rice
1/2. c. water
1/3. c. chopped onion
1 tsp salt
1/8 tst. garlic powder
1/8 tsp pepper
1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
2 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp celery salt
1 c. water
First Mix up your hamburger, rice, 1/2 c water, the onion, salt, celery salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Mix well, shape mixture into round balls this will make between 15 and 20 depending on how big you like your meatballs.
Mix, mix mix :)

Place meatballs in skillet, and brown on all sides.

Mmmmmm doesn't that smell good?

Now if there is any excess fat, drain at this point.
Then add: The tomato sauce, worcestershire sauce, and 1 c. water. pour over meatballs. Heat to boiling, then reduce heat. cover and simmer for 45 min.
Add water during cooking if necessary, I usually end up adding about another 3/4 c. during cooking. don't you just love how the rice looks like porcupines! I love it when the rice poofs when its done!
kid friendly dinner, at least for my kids anyway!
