Delicious, hearty and rich Meatball Stroganoff is perfect comfort food !
Everyone knows Stroganoff and most of us have our own (secret?) favorite recipes. I did not want the usual this time and decided to make Meatball Stroganoff.
Meatball Stroganoff is nothing new, Stroganoffs are actually made in many different ways and also using different meats. The very first Stroganoff I had, was a Beef Stroganoff, which we still enjoy on a regular basis.
This Meatball version might not be anywhere close to an authentic Stroganoff but it works well enough for me. And fortunately I am not a licenced, degree and all chef who (some of them), feel they have to keep to the rules (as I was reminded once by an anonymous trained chef!).
I am simply a mom who likes to cook good food for her family. Although the good is not always that true ! Delicious, yes, but always good, no way, we enjoy too many rich desserts. But, hey, we can eat healthy as well, not all our meals are rich or sweet.
True to the aim of this blog, quick, easy, yet a filling dinner recipe, which uses standard ingredients, most of what I normally have in the refrigerator and the pantry.
Spooned over pasta and dinner is ready to be served !
- 450 g Lean Ground Beef ( 1 pound )
- 1 cup Fresh Bread Crumbs
- 1 Onion finely chopped
- 2 t Fresh Garlic crushed
- 1 Egg lightly beaten
- 1/8 t Salt
- 1 TB Thick Soy Sauce
- 2 TB Vegetable Oil
- 1 1/2 Onions thinly sliced
- 250 g Mushrooms brown or white button, sliced ( 8 oz )
- 3 TB Cornflour (Cornstarch)
- 1 cup Beef Stock
- 1/2 cup Sour Cream
- 1 TB Thick Soy Sauce
- 1 TB Parsley chopped (to garnish)
Combine the Beef, Bread Crumbs, Onion, Garlic, Egg, Salt and Soy Sauce in a medium mixing bowl – form 16 – 20 meatballs
Heat the Oil in a large skillet – fry the meatballs over low heat until just brown – carefully remove meatballs from skillet and keep aside
Using the same skillet – saute the Onions and Mushrooms until soft – sprinkle over the Cornflour and stir – add the Beef Stock and let simmer until thickened
Once the sauce has thickened, stir in the Sour Cream and Soy Sauce – stir to mix
Add back the Meatballs and simmer over low heat until the meatballs are done (cover skillet partially)
Serve on a bed of pasta and enjoy !
