It's all about the food!
1 lb extra lean ground beef
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup of uncooked minute rice
1 egg, well beaten
garlic powder to taste
Add all ingredients in a mixing bowl and
mix together thoroughly with your hands.
Form into small balls and put aside.
Start the sauce.
1 cup ketchup
3 TBSP white vinegar
4 TBSP light brown sugar
1/2 to 1 cup of water
Add ketchup to a heavy bottom pot, deep enough to hold the sauce and meatballs. Turn the burner on to medium heat. Add the vinegar and stir. Add the brown sugar and stir. As sauce is heating, add the water small bits at a time, to thin (half a cup for thicker sauce, full cup for thinner sauce).
Once the sauce starts to bubble, start adding the raw meatballs. (To speed up the cooking time, you can brown the meatballs in the oven in a shallow pan. This will also reduce the amount of grease.) Simmer the meatballs in the sauce until they are cooked thoroughly and the sauce coats them.
This can be served with rice or potato salad.

I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
