Ingredients
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice, divided
  • 1 teaspoon dried onion
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 (14-ounce) can beef broth
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Put the ground beef into a mixing bowl. Measure 1/2 cup of the rice and put it in with the meat. Mix it all together with your clean hands. Form the mixture into 8 or 9 golf ball-size balls.

  • In a large casserole dish, add the remaining rice, dried onion, salt, Italian seasoning, diced tomatoes and beef broth. Stir together with the spoon and top with the meatballs.

  • Cover the dish tightly with foil and bake for about 1 hour. The rice in the meatballs will have puffed up all around the meat, and your meatballs will look like little porcupines!

  • Cook's Note: Let an adult help you remove the dish from the oven with oven mitts or hot pads. When you remove the foil, steam will come out, so be careful!
