In a medium bowl, add the egg and 1/4 cup of Tomato Soup. Stir in uncooked rice, onion, salt and pepper; Mix well.

Add the ground beef and mix to incorporate. Shape the meat mixture into ball. Arrange the meatballs around the edges and middle of a large skillet.

*The rice will pop out of the sides of each meatball, resembling a porcupine*. Serve the meatballs and sauce over rice.
