Porcupine Burger Recipe

I mentioned tonight on Twitter that I was making "porcupine burgers" for dinner and got more then one curious response and several requests for the recipe so I figured I'd post it here. This was a Chapman staple growing up. It was cheap, one pot and easy to make and have left overs from. Grab a pressure cooker and give it a try. Chapman Porcupine Burgers (8 servings)

  • Porcupine Burgers2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1 cup Uncooked White Rice
  • 2 T Minced Onions
  • 2 T Salt
  • 1/2 T Black Pepper
  • 2 10 1/2 oz. cans Tomato Soup
  • 1 1/4 Cup Water


  • Combine meat, rice, onion, salt & pepper in a bowl and mix with hands
  • Form into balls (ours end up about the size of a tangerine)
  • Mix soup + water in a pressure cooker
  • Place meat balls in the cooker
  • Cover and cook on high until the control starts to jiggle
  • Reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes
  • Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes, then remove pressure in the sink with cold water.
  • Cut meatballs in to pieces on top of a peace of plain white bread and cover with sauce
  • Enjoy!

That is all there is to it. If you try it, let me know what you think!
