Directions

  1. Mix ground beef, rice, onion, and egg together in a bowl with your hands; shape into tennis-ball sized balls.
  2. Stir tomato sauce and water together in a large pot; bring too a boil. Gently lie meatballs into the sauce, place cover on the pot, and reduce heat to medium-low.
  3. Cook until meatballs are no longer pink in the center, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. Put meatballs on a plate, cut each into halves, and ladle sauce over the meatballs to serve.
