1 1/2 lbs hamburger
finely chpd onion
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups long grain rice, uncooked rice
4 cups tomato juice
Combine hamburger, onion, egg, salt, pepper and rice. Form into meatballs and place in a greased 9 x 13" pan. Pour tomato juice over meatballs. If desired, sprinkle some additional rice in and around the meatballs. Cover with foil and bake 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until tender.
Note: Recipes will vary, on the addition of an egg. Some add it, others don't. I find that it holds the meat together better. Also, I personally, find these somewhat bland, so you can add some basil and oregano to either the meatballs or the tomato juice, if desired.
