In a medium bowl, add the egg and 1/4 cup of Tomato Soup. Stir in uncooked rice, onion, salt and pepper; Mix well. Add the ground beef and mix to incorporate. Shape the meat mixture into ball. Arrange the meatballs around the edges and middle of a large skillet. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining Tomato Soup, water, and Worcestershire Sauce. Pour the sauce over the meatballs. Cover the skillet and cook the meatballs on MEDIUM heat for 20 minutes.
