Porcupine Meatballs In A Sweet Tomato Sauce

        I enjoy slow cooked meals once in a while and I am sure some of you have those busy days, that slow cooking is the best way to cook. The other day we had just one of those days and since Mark and I both like Porcupine Meatballs, we took out the crock and the prep only took a few minutes and we slow cooked on high for an hour and then on low for 4-6 hours. This is how we made slow cooked Porcupine Meatballs.



1lb            Ground Beef

3/4c            Jasmine Rice( uncooked)

1                Egg

3                Green Onion(Minced)

1tsp            Fresh Garlic (you can use dried ground garlic also)

1tsp            Salt

1/4tsp        Celery Salt

1/2tsp         Coriander

2tsp            Oil


-In a large mixing bowl,

– Crumble the ground beef.

– Mince the green onions

– Add fresh onions, fresh garlic, Salt, celery salt, coriander.

– Add the egg.

– Add the Uncooked rice.

Now mix this well, shape into 2inch balls.

– Heat the oil in a skillet on medium high.

– Add meatballs and let cook till brown on all sides.

While those were cooking, I started the sauce for the meatballs.


Just add all following ingredients to slow cooker.

1can (15oz)           Tomato sauce

1c                           Water

1/4c                        Brown sugar

3Tbsp                     Worestshire Sauce

4Tbsp                     Dijon Mustard

– Stir well and when the meatballs are browned.

– Add meatballs to sauce in slow cooker an mix to cover meatballs.

 We cooked for one hour on high and then low for 4-6 hours.

It went very well served with mashed potatoes and saute zucchini but you can also serve over noodles.
