Different spin on meatballs. Flavoring is a cleaner tomato with cumin instead of the heavy oregano and basil we think of with Italian style meatballs. Typically served with rice pilaf.

1 cup bread crumbs
1 1/2 pounds ground beef or lamb
2 tablespoons onion minced very very fine (or just use 1 tablespoon dried chopped)
3 crushed garlic cloves
2 teaspoons cumin
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tablespoon dried)

Combine well and roll in flour then fry until evenly browned all over. Remove to a plate and make your sauce in the same pot.

Put in first 1 small onion sliced or chopped and fry until it goes clear. Then add..
Large can of crushed or diced tomatoes (don't drain)
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon sugar
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring to a simmer and put your meatballs back in the sauce. Simmer for 10 - 15 minutes more.
