Directions:
Cut whole water chestnut into small pieces, eighths work well and side aside.
Mix ground beef, egg, ketchup, steak sauce, oatmeal, and salt & pepper in large mixing bowl until well blended.

Take about a tablespoon size portion of meat into palm and flatten into circular shape. The smaller the meatball, the easier they are to pop into your mouth. Add 2 or 3 pieces of water chestnut into center and roll meat around pieces to form a ball. Place onto clean plate and keep making small meatballs until all meat is used.

In a large heated skillet, cook and brown meatballs, turning them to make sure meatballs are evenly cooked. Place cooked meatballs into crockpot or stockpot. Once all meatballs are cooked and transferred into pot, cover with jar of favorite sauce, warm and serve.
