While sauce cooks, in large mixing bowl, combine beaten egg, parsley/cilantro, oregano, jalapeno, chili flakes (if using), 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper. Add ground meat and fold mixture to fully incorporate, being careful not to over mix.
Form mixture into 18 even-sized balls (about 3 - 4 inches in diameter). Drop balls gently into sauce, evenly dispersing throughout pan. Cover pot and cook over low heat for 15 - 20 minutes, turning balls halfway through cooking time.

Serve sauce and balls over cooked rice and garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro.
