Why I Love This Recipe

This is an old recipe that was popular in the 60's. I made this for my family when my children were young. I like the fact that the rice cooks in the meatballs. I used to make these meatballs in an electric fry pan - I guess this really is an old recipe!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 pound lean ground beef
1/4 cup rice (raw)
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 Tbsp parsley (dried is ok)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 can tomato soup, divided
1/2 cup water
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


In a medium sized bowl, thoroughly mix the ground beef, rice, egg, parsley, salt, pepper, an 1/4 cup of the tomato soup.

Shape the meat mixture into small balls and place in a large skillet that has a cover.

Mix the remaining soup, water, and Worcestershire; pour over meatballs.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover the pan.

Simmer for 40 minutes, stirring about every ten minutes.
