Albondigas (Meatballs)

Serves 6

11/2 lbs. ground beef
1 large onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 tsp. ground coriander
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

2 Tbs. oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
salt and pepper
pinch sugar

Combine all meatball ingredients and make balls just a bit larger than a walnut. Place on baking sheet and bake in preheated 425-degree oven 10 minutes.

Make sauce by heating oil with garlic. Add remaining ingredients and simmer 10 minutes. Add albondigas and simmer another 10 to 15 minutes.
