About this recipe:
These meatballs are super easy to make. Best served with Mashed Potato - yum!
1 lb (16oz) minced beef
4 oz uncooked instant rice - rinse the rice under warm water to wash off some of the starch (Uncle Ben's rice works great)
1 large Onion: 1/2 minced & 1/2 sliced
1 Tbs Worcestershire Sauce
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tbs dried oregano
6 Tbs (4 oz) bread crumbs
1 egg: beaten
Salt & Pepper to taste
15oz jar of Tomato Sauce (or Frito)
10 min › Cook:
2 hr › Ready in:
2 hr 10 min
Preheat oven to 200c / 350f (gas mark 6)
Mix the beef, rice, minced onion, bread crumbs, worcestershire sauce, egg & seasonings into a large bowl
Form beef mixture into 4 cm size balls and place into a 9 x 13in baking dish
In a smaller bowl mix the tomato sauce & water together. Pour over the meatballs. Add the sliced onion on top.
Cook for 1 hour 45 mins to 2 hours or until the meatballs are fully cooked and browned and the sauce has thickened.
NOTE: If the sauce looks too thick, add another 60ml of water halfway through the cooking.
My Mum used to make these so I was overjoyed to find the recipe.
I made my own pasta sauce with ham, mushroom, tomato, garlic and herbs but the meatballs were kind of bland. COuld this be that I used leftover cornbread for the breadcrumbs or I needed a larger onion? Maybe, I will try again. There was nothing wrong with them I just like a little higher taste kick than my first try turned out.
