This has been on my 'to make' list for a while...maybe this year. 


Love meatballs but don't like oregano and it is in most of them.


Thanks for the opinion of these!

@ZhillsI found the recipe that you posted back in November of 2015:


Mrs. Murphy's Meatballs

1 lb ground chuck

1/4 cup uncooked rice (not instant)

1 green pepper, chopped fine

1 small onion, chopped fine

1 stalk celery, chopped fine

2 cups cabbage, finely shredded

1 (10-3/4 oz) condensed cream of tomato soup

1/2 soup can of water


You need a large frying pan at least 2 inches deep.

Pour the tomato soup and water into pan; place over low heat.

In a large bowl combine meat, rice and vegetables.

Form into balls (our meatballs were about 1-1/2 inches)

Place the meatballs in the soup. (This is important, put meatballs in not fry)

Simmer for about 1-1/2 hours.

Alliswell, Thank you so much for posting recipe...

I like the meatballs in Hoagie buns with shredded

mozzarella cheese and parm cheese.


Tip: you can save time by buying shredded cabbage, then I just chop it up finer.

These sound very unusual but interesting. I'll definitely try them soon.

very similar to what we call porcupine meatballs.
