This is an incredibly simple but delicious recipe from my mother. It's easy to scale it up for company or down for just yourself - but these are great left over, so don't scale it down too much! I've made a couple of corrections after getting CraftScout's feedback. :)

  1. Mix ground beef, diced onion, eggs, and rice; form into balls roughly 1.5 - 2 inches in diameter.
  2. Over medium heat, brown meatballs in large skillet or saucepan (large enough to hold meat and tomato juice).
  3. Add tomato juice and season with salt and pepper (or other seasonings if you like); reduce heat and cover pan.
  4. Simmer until juice has cooked down to a thick sauce (between 35 - 60 minutes), turning meatballs occasionally.
