Italian style meatballs

These turned out very good. Could be eaten as they are, or with something on the side, salad for example.
Very juicy a full of flavour. I really dislike meetballs and patties that are not seasoned enought. It's better to go mad with the spices than not to use enough.

This is what you need for 4-5 portions:

½ kilo of minced beef, fresh
1 onion, chopped
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of dijon mustard

Salt, quite a bit
Garlic powder
Garlic Salt
Paprika powder
Some Italian spice mix I use, containing different peppers, garlic and herbs.

½ can of crushed tomates
A dash of fresh cream
Some salt to bring out the flavours

Mix everything and let it 'rest' for an hour or more.

Melt a big chunk of butter in a frying pan while your shaping 8-10 meat balls. When the butter has gone quiet, fry your patties a couple of  minutes on each side.
Then pour over the tomatoes and the cream, add some salt, and let everything simmer for 20-30 minutes.
