1 lb lean ground beef
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/3 cup dry bread crumbs
1 egg
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon ground steak seasoning**
1/2 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1. Heat your oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray the foil with non-stick spray.

2. Combine all of the ingredients in a medium bowl, and gently mix with a fork or with your hands. I like to use my hands because I think it's easier to get everything mixed without beating it up. This is one of the moments I break out my disposable latex gloves--I hate trying to pick the meat out from under my fingernails. Gross.

3. Use a muffin scoop, or a 1/4-cup measuring cup, to portion out the meat mixture. Gently roll the portions into meatballs and place them on the prepared baking sheet. You should get 9 meatballs.

4. Bake the meatballs for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked all the way through. There will be some nasty cooked meat-stuff that collects around the base of the meatball. To serve beautiful nasty-cooked-meat-stuff free meatballs, gently wipe the meatballs on a paper towel before plating.

**I have something called "Chicago Steak Seasoning" I bought at Sam's Club. I'm sure any type of seasoning or herb mixture for steak or beef would work.
