Tasty Tuesdays- Porcupine Meatballs

This is one of my husband's favorite meals from his childhood. It is a fun and delicious recipe, the one downside to it is that you need a pressure cooker to be able to make it. I finally just bought a pressure cooker, so I have added it to my cookbook.

You will need:
1 lb hamburger
½ cup rice (uncooked)
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp salt
1 T onion
pressure cooker
can of tomato soup
1/2 cup water

Mix together everything but tomato soup and water. Shape into balls. In pressure cooker, place a can tomato soup and ½ cup water. Turn it on and heat it to a boil and add meatballs. Stir in sauce. Place lid and bring to pressure for 10 minutes. Pressure has to go down on its own (10-15 minutes).

:( I don't have a pressure cooker. Now I want one because that recipe looks delish!

Ooh, sounds yummy. I wonder if it could work with instant rice... or maybe just precooked. I might have to try it...

My mom used to make these when I was a kid, but I could never get over the weirdness of the rice, so I haven't had them in probably 20 years. I had completely forgotten about them!

I used to make this for the kids years ago. I got the recipe from Company Coming casserole cookbook. You cooked it in the oven though. They were good! Maybe I should make these for the younger ones now. lol
