What I've come to understand is it's a stack (it uses mongoDB and something called "mini Mongo" and the front end uses a templating system called handlebars) that takes advantage of Javascript async nature allowing for the creation of applications that otherwise would be considered "AJAX"ish but within meteor these are just "normal" and don't require AJAX code, hence why it's unique. It isn't MVC it's "MVVM" as JPKab mentioned
