Classic Retro Porcupine Meatballs

How to make classic porcupine meatballs! These rice filled meatballs with tomato sauce are a one of my favourite recipes from my childhood! 

Porcupine meatballs are easy, amazing, retro and so delicious. The only thing that i sometimes change in the traditional recipe is to use half ground beef and half ground pork. I find that the ground pork makes for juicier meatballs. You can use all ground beef if you like, but i suggest trying them with ground pork, they are so delicious! You can definitely double this recipe (i did) you simply need a larger skillet for the meatballs.

I also use two pounds of ground meat in the basic recipe, if you are going to go to all that effort then you should make enough for a few leftovers as well! This meatball recipe yields around 24-25 large meatballs.


  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon onion soup mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 pound ground pork
  • one (10-11 ounce) can of tomato soup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
