I’ve mentioned several times before that my mom was never the biggest fan of cooking, so we never ever had anything unusual growing up. She made the same 20-so meals over and over, but they were sooo delicious.

One of my most favorite dishes she makes is meatballs and rice. The best part is, is it’s suuuper easy to make and my kids LOVE it – like literally love it!! I usually serve this with a side of green beans – yum!

Meatballs & Rice

Here’s how you make it!

In a bowl mix together with your hands 1lb ground beef and 1 packet of Onion Soup mix
Any ol’ brand soup mix will do
Form into meatballs and fry in large skillet over medium heat. If they start to cook too fast on the outside (and the middle is not done enough) place about 1/4c of water in the skillet and cover with a lid. This will help cook the middle and not let the outsides burn, repeat as many times as necessary
Cook rice according to package and amount of servings you need
In a small saucepan combine 1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup & 1/2 can of milk. Heat until warm
I love it served with beans! Ahhh sooo yummy!

Hope you guys give this a try!

If you think this looks tasty, I’d love for you to PIN it!!

  1. I do something similar but once the meatballs are cooked, I put the mushroom soup in the skillet and let the meatballs simmer in the soup for a while. It really adds to the taste of the meatballs. Then server it over rice. Makes a nice meal. Brown rice is even better!

    1. I have done that before too! It really is yummy!
      Brown rice and I have not yet become friends…it always takes 50 times longer to cook than what the box says! haha – maybe I should try again! 🙂
