Default Porcupine balls

Mom used to make them and stretch a pound of ground meat. Just seasoned ground beef and raw rice. I smoked them first then dropped them in brown gravy till rice was cooked and served with white beans, roasted Brussels sprouts and garlic bread.

When I read the title I immediately wondered where you would find porcupine testes. Then I wondered how many it would take to make a full meal. That looks like an old school hearty meal though.

I like to roast the balls on the Weber and finish in a tomato sauce made with my fire roasted tomatoes.

I love the brown gravy direction.
Maybe some mushrooms in the gravy.

For every pound of ground beef, I used 3/4 cup of long grain rice. You could use your favorite meatball recipe and add the rice.

cook in the oven or grill to set the meatballs about 160.

Then I dropped them in a brown gravy which had onions and peppers i had sauteed first. Any store bought gravy or homemade would work fine.

I baked them in the oven at 325 for about an hour.

enjoy

I love mushrooms but the girl friend doesn't so leave them out.

If I make plan balls she likes them in brown gravy, when I make cabbage rolls she likes them in the tomato gravy.

don't ask me why?

Have a great Friday everyone!
