Porcupine Meatballs

My cute grandma has told me about porcupine meatballs and that they are so good. I didn't have her exact recipe so I turned to this recipe at Jamie Cooks It Up for help. It's a ridiculously simple recipe and it was tasty too. I'll definitely make it again.

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 (6.8 oz) box beef rice-a-roni
steak seasoning
1 egg
2 1/4 cups water

In a mixing bowl combine ground beef, a little salt, a little pepper, a little steak seasoning, the egg, and the rice and pasta from the rice-a-roni box. Save the seasoning packet separately. Gently combine the meat mixture and shape into golf ball sized meatballs. Spray a large, deep skillet with non-stick spray and heat over medium high heat. Once hot add all your meatballs and brown/sear them on one side, then flip and do the same thing on the other. Combine your water and rice-a-roni seasoning packet and whisk to combine. Pour mixture over the meatballs and reduce heat to medium low. Bring to a simmer then cover and let cook for 30-40 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and the meatballs are cooked through and the pasta/rice is tender. Mine took the full 40 minutes. Serve hot and enjoy!
