I tried out a new recipe and it was a major hit with husband and myself. It’s called porcupines, which is basically meatballs with rice cooked inside. I made them with my version of caramelized onions. The recipe is nice because it’s a “base” recipe, so you can add and take out seasonings and other things to cater to your liking.
About 1lb of ground beef
A sprinkling or 2 of bread crumbs
1/4 cup uncooked rice
Fresh chopped parsley
Finely chopped onion
3 garlic cloves, chopped or minced
Salt & pepper to taste
Sauce- Tomato (pasta) sauce & Worcestershire sauce
Basically you just mush all that good stuff together, adding and seasoning to your liking. Grease a baking dish and preheat the oven to 350. Roll the mush into nice meatballs. Add a bit of worscheshire sauce to the tomato sauce and pour it into the dish. Add the meatballs and coat them in the sauce. Cover, and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover, and finish baking for another 15.
Meanwhile, put yo’ onions in the skillet with olive oil, tiny bit of butter, and a pinch of salt. Sautee the onions until browned and crispy.
Easy peasy. Boom.
