    1. Heat oven and prepare baking sheet. Heat oven to 400°F and place an oven rack in the top of the oven, grease a baking sheet and set aside.
    2. Mix albondigas. Combine all the ingredients for the albondigas (1 lb ground pork, 1 large egg, 1/2 white onion, 1/2 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup mint leaves, 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, 2 Tbsp fresh Mexican oregano, 1 tsp kosher salt, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp ground black pepper) in a large bowl. Mix gently with wet hands until all the ingredients are evenly mixed.
