    Saucy Porcupine Meatballs

    "Tender rice-plumped meatballs simmered in a sweet tomato sauce."


    2 (8 ounce) cans Hunt's® TomatoSauce
    2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    1 pound extra lean ground beef
    1/4 cup dry instant white rice, uncooked
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper


    1. Mix tomato sauce and sugar in large skillet; set aside.

    2. Combine egg, meat, rice, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper in large bowl. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place in skillet with sauce; spoon sauce over meatballs.

    3. Cook over medium heat until sauce comes to a boil. Cover skillet with lid. Reduce heat to low; simmer 20 minutes, or until meatballs are no longer pink in centers (160 degrees F).

    Charlene’s Notes: The only things I did different was to finely dice up a shallot and put a tablespoon of dried parsley flakes into the meatballs and I added 1 Tbsp tomato paste to the sauce. Excellent!

      I've made something similar that called for regular rice and the rice was still hard when everything else was cooked. Maybe using instant rice would work better.
