In a big bowl, combine the ground beef, egg, minced onion, salt or Vege-Sal, pepper, and mustard.
Using clean hands, smooth everything until well combined.
Form into meatballs about 1 inches (3.
75 cm) in diameter.
Put everything else in a food processor with the S-blade in place and pulse until the cranberries are chopped fairly fine.
Now spray a big, heavy skillet with nonstick cooking spray and put it over medium-high heat.
Brown the meatballs all over.
Pour off the fat and add the cranberry mixture.
Turn the burner to low, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes.
Serve over Cauliflower Rice (page 212) if you want something to sop up the sauce, but they're fine alone.
