This is a recipe my mom use to make, but I couldn't find. I ended up going to Google and found it HERE . It was the same recipe. Give or take some spices. Easy, the kids like it. Enjoy!

Porcupines are meatballs with rice baked in a tomato sauce.

* 1 pound lean ground beef
* 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain rice
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/4 cup chopped onion
* 1 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
* 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
* 1/8 teaspoon pepper
* 1 large can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
* 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
* 1/2 cup water

Mix the ground beef, rice, 1/2 cup of water, the chopped onion, , salt, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper. Shape the mixture by tablespoons into 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet and cook the meatballs over medium heat until brown; drain off excess grease. Add tomato sauce, remaining 1/2 cup water, and Worcestershire sauce; heat to boiling. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 35 to 45 minutes.
