Instructions
  1. Cook the rice half through. It should be only half cooked because we will continue to cook it with meat later.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together ground beef, rice, and grated onion. Season it with salt, pepper and a pinch of smoked paprika.
  3. Roll the mixture into balls (standard meatballs size).
  4. In a large preheated pan, add tomato sauce and 1/3 cup of water, stir it. Add chopped onion and garlic. Season with salt, pepper, a pinch of sugar and smoked paprika. Bring it to boil, then reduce the heat to medium/low and simmer it for a few minutes.
  5. Add the meatballs, cover with lid and cook for 20 minutes over medium heat. Turn the meatballs over every 5 minutes. Serve warm with a side dish of your choice.
