Saucy Meatballs

One egg
One tablespoon soy sauce
One eighth teaspoon black pepper
One tablespoon canola oil
One can (16 ounces) tomato sauce
Two teaspoons dry Italian herbs or oregano

Combine beef, bread crumbs, egg and soy sauce. Sprinkle black pepper over meatball mixture and mix. Form sixteen meatballs by rolling beef between the palms of your hands until nicely rounded meatballs are formed. Heat oil in large skillet until very hot, but not smoking. Turn down heat and slowly brown meatballs. Pour tomato sauce in skillet and season with herbs. Simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.
