Spicy Beef Meatballs in Sauce

These meatballs have some hot pepper paste in them
for just the right amount of heat to make you smile.
They are pretty easy to form into balls and cook up
in a big old sauce pot of crushed tomato sauce.
The meat mixture is moist enough to form the balls
using a small ice cream scoop that saves time.
You can brown the meatballs in a fry pan or
bake them in the oven for ten minutes before
simmering them in the tomato sauce if desired.

1 large egg
1 tablespoon red hot pepper paste
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried rosemary
1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound ground beef chuck
1/4 cup grated Romano cheese
1/4 cup dried Italian bread crumbs
1 (16 ounce) can crushed tomatoes

Open can of crushed tomatoes into a sauce pot.
Stir in two cups or so of water to soup pot.
Place sauce pot on stove and bring to a simmer.
Crack egg into a mixing bowl then add in
all the seasoning spices and herbs to taste.
Mix the egg and spices to make a dark mixture.
Add in the ground beef, cheese and breadcrumbs.
Mix to just combine well, do not over mix.
Use an ice cream scoop to form into meatballs.
Place formed meatballs into the tomato in pot.
Cover sauce pot and let meatballs simmer in sauce
for about 1 hour or until done and cooked through.
