Porcupine Meatballs

These work both as a main dish and appetizer. I serve them with Baked Mashed Potatoes (recipe will be posted shortly after this one) and salad.

½ cup uncooked long grain rice
½ cup water
1/3 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon celery salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic posder
1 lb. ground beef
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 15 oz. can tomato sauce
1 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

In a bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Add beef and mix well. Shape into 1 ½ inch balls. In a large skillet, brown meatballs in oil; drain. Combine tomato sauce, water, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce; pour over meatballs; cover and simmer for 1 hour over medium-low heat.
