I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, meatballs are a huge hit in our family. Kensington especially loves a meatball and well pasta, don’t all kids love pasta?
One of our favorite fall and winter suppers is Hamburger Stroganoff…you know, a simpler/weeknight version of Beef Stroganoff. Well, I took the components and whipped up a meatball version to serve over some noodles and my family went nuts. So simple, quick and yummy for those busy weeknights when you’re trying to get dinner on the table.
This recipe serves four.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 an onion, grated (just use a cheese grater)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce, divided
1/2 cup breadcrumbs or Panko
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon flour
1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
2 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons sour cream (or a little more if you like)
1/2 pound of cooked pasta for serving
Chopped green onions or scallions to garnish, optional
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Line a baking sheet in foil (for easy clean up) and lightly spray with Pam. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, grated onion, one tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, breadcrumbs and eggs. Form into small meatballs (I made 18 small meatballs but it could be more or less depending on the size you roll yours).
Place the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and roast about 15 minutes or until browned.
While your meatballs are roasting, heat your tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Quickly whisk the flour into the melted butter and whisk about a minute. Stir in your mushroom soup, remaining tablespoon of Worcestershire Sauce and stock and bring to a little bubble then reduce heat to low. Stir in your garlic powder and a nice pinch of salt and pepper.
Remove meatballs from oven and add them to your skillet mixture to simmer about 10 minutes, stirring them around often. Right before serving, stir in your sour cream.
Serve your meatballs and some sauce over cooked noodles.
A few meatballs, some noodles and a whole lot of yummy.
