  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Beat egg and water in a bowl; add ground beef, bread crumbs, salt, and black pepper to eggs and mix thoroughly. Form ground beef mixture into bite-size meatballs; place meatballs into a large baking dish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until meatballs are browned and no longer pink inside, 25 to 30 minutes.
  4. Mix ketchup, beef bouillon, and vinegar in a large saucepan or Dutch oven. Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in a small bowl and stir brown sugar mixture into ketchup mixture. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and stir until sauce is thickened and bubbling and brown sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes. Add meatballs to sauce, stir until coated, and serve.

Very Good taste. My husband said that it was superb. I did put some onion into my meat mixture. This is going to be a regular in my kitchen. Thanks

I made this for Christmas it was a Big Hit Thank You!!! :-) the only things I did different were~~ I put finely grated onion, garlic, parmesan-romano cheese and a package of real bacon bits in to the meat mixture and used 1 lb ground chuck and 1 lb of ground pork sausage. The sauce I didn't change at all it was incredible people were dipping into it even after the meat balls were gone!!!

I used Italian breadcrumbs rather than just the bread, and I added garlic powder to the meatballs. Certainly, you could add whatever you like in your meatballs. I like the sauce, and especially appreciate that it calls for ingredients I keep on hand.
