This Porcupine Meatballs Recipe For Ninja Cooking System is great because the meatballs get texture from the rice. The rice also absorbs the taste of the meat and sauce, making the meatball really flavorful. By using rice instead of bread crumbs, the meatballs are gluten-free if you check your labels.

- Ninja Cooking System (I used a Ninja Cooking System with Auto-iQ)
- large mixing bowl
- measuring spoons
- measuring cups
- silicone tongs
- 1.5 lbs ground beef
- 1 cup uncooked white rice
- 1x 28 oz can tomato sauce
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese (the kind in the shaker)
- 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp dried chopped onion
- 1 tsp parsley
Place the ground beef into a large mixing bowl.
Add the seasonings and the egg and mix well.
Pour the rice into the bowl and combine thoroughly.
Form meatballs of equal size and place them into the Ninja. (My batch contained 15 fairly large meatballs.)
Set the Ninja to stovetop high and brown the meatballs on all sides.
Once the meatballs have browned, pour the tomato sauce into the Ninja and give a quick, gentle stir, which makes sure some sauce gets under the meatballs.
Set the Ninja to dry bake 350 and cook for 30 minutes.
Serve immediately over rice.
