Electric Pressure Cooker Recipe: Porcupine Meatballs
One of the first things I made in my Electric Pressure Cooker were Porcupine Meatballs.
I have tried quite a few recipes since, but this is still the girls favorite.
I like it because it is simple.
I found out this is an old favorite of many. I had never even of heard of porcupine meatballs.
The girls enjoy helping in the kitchen when these are one the menu. This recipe has made its way into our Recipe Box.
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2/3 cups uncooked rice
1 pint stewed tomatoes
seasoning (salt, pepper, Italian seasoning)
Mix the ground beef and rice together.
Add Onion:I use 2 Tablespoons dried Minced Onion OR 1/2 cup diced onion.
I add 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and 1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning. (season to taste)
Form into Meatballs (the girls like doing this part)
Turn on Pressure Cooker.
Heat up the stewed tomatoes. (I use home canned tomatoes that have a lot of juice, you need to have about a cup of liquid in the cooker-you can add water if needed)
Drop in Meatballs.
Cook on High Pressure for 10 minutes (follow your pressure cooker's instructions)
When timer goes off let Pressure drop in cooker before opening.
Can be served with Rice or noodles.
I add Spaghetti Sauce to the meatballs and heat thoroughly. I serve over Spaghetti Noodles.
I love simple, easy recipes!
