Tomato Rice Meatball Recipe

Serves 6
Prep time 15 minutes
Cook time 30 minutes
Total time 45 minutes


  • 1 cup Instant Rice
  • 1lb Ground Beef (Extra Lean)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Onion (Grated)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 2.5 cups Tomato Juice (Low Sodium)


Step 1. Take the beef, egg, rice, onion, salt, pepper and half a cup of the tomato juice and mix together. Form six meatballs and place in a skillet. Brown the meatballs and drain fat.
Step 2. Put the meatballs into a saucepan and the remaining tomato juice. Boil, then reduce heat and cook for approximately 15-20 minutes.
Step 3. Note: DO NOT use regular rice or the meatballs will be crunchy. Remember, nobody likes a crunchy meatball. Also, think about using brown instant rice to make this a whole grain recipe.
