Nothing says comfort like mom’s Porcupine Meatballs.
I have not made this recipe in many years, but it is one that I loved. Note in the recipe where it says, “Real rice.” You might think that the opposite would be fake rice, but this is actually a reference to Minute Rice, as in, “Don’t use Minute Rice.” Mom always used Minute Rice when she was cooking so she wanted to make sure that I knew which rice to use: real rice.
To up the comfort level even more, I would recommend serving this with more real rice or perhaps mashed potatoes. Mom also used instant mashed potatoes, but mashing your own potatoes is pretty easy, especially if you have a potato ricer. Rice and potatoes seems pretty Peruvian to me.
