Posted1/27/2010 12:01 AM

1 pound lean ground beef



cup fresh bread crumbs

2 tablespoons fresh mint, chopped

2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

1 teaspoon garlic salt


cup water

2 eggs


cup flour

1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce

Heat oven to 350 degrees

In a large bowl, with your hands, combine beef, bread crumbs, mint, parsley, garlic salt, water and eggs (see note). Form into golf ball-sized balls and roll in flour.

Heat a thin layer of oil in a fry pan and brown on all sides. Add meatballs to a 2-quart casserole dish; pour tomato sauce over all and bake 30 minutes.

Serves four.

Cook's note: Meatballs will taste better if mixed several hours before cooking.
