Regular People Meatballs Recipe (Gluten Free)

I apologize to all the vegetarians but my kids thrive on protein. I boil the meatballs in beef broth because my daughter doesn't like tomato sauce. It is so easy and they stay juicy. Then I pour tomato sauce on top of my son's. I had to post this recipe tonight, before I forgot, because I FINALLY managed to make, what my husband calls, "regular people" meatballs. I usually make things with too much garlic or spice when my family prefers plainer, simpler food.

1 pound of ground organic beef
1 pound of ground veal
1 medium onion
1 clove of garlic
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3/4 cup bread crumbs
1 quart beef broth or tomato sauce

Chop the onion finely and saute in olive oil until soft. Add 1 clove
of crushed garlic and spices. Let cool so it isn't too hot. Add to
meat with seasonings, an egg and breadcrumbs. Form into 1 inch balls
and simmer in broth or sauce for 15 minutes. It might take a few
batches to cook all of them depending on how much broth or sauce you
have.
