I’m so excited that Dina could guest post this recipe for us today. She will also co-host this party in October. We will have 5 co-hosts, so we will be all ready to pin all your recipes! __________________
Hi there! This is Dina from Savvy In The Kitchen with a weeknight recipe that is sure to be a regular favorite anytime of year. This is a classic recipe with a twist. Served with egg noodles, this couldn’t be more simple.
This dish pairs so well with egg noodles, and for me, it comes together in a snap! My daughter loves the flavor of the onion in the meatballs. She can’t get enough!
I love the end of summer and the beginning of fall. I love when the weather changes and I can get comfy with a big blanket, a cup of tea, and a good book. I hope that comes soon because right now, it is September and still 90 degrees outside.
I make this recipe for my family quite often. No matter the weather or season. It is one of those recipes that taste good whenever you make it. It has become a regular on our menu, and my kids just love meatballs. I mean who doesn’t?!
So here is my take on a classic. I hope you like it!
- 1 pound of ground beef
- 1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
- 1/2 small onion chopped
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup of sliced mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 2 cups of beef broth
- 1 heaping tablespoon of corn starch
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- Chopped Parsley for garnish
In a large bowl add ground beef, onion, egg, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, salt and pepper. Using your hands, mix to combine, and shape into meatballs about 1 1/2 inch in diameter. Set meatballs aside.
In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon of butter and cook sliced mushrooms until soft and fragrant. Remove mushrooms to bowl and set aside.
Carefully add meatballs to skillet. Cook meatballs on medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side. Remove meatballs to a paper towel lined plate.
In a medium sized measuring cup, combine broth, corn starch, and thyme. Pour broth mixture into skillet and cook stirring slowly, until broth has become darker in color, and has thickened. Add meatballs and mushrooms to gravy, at let it come to a slow boil. Cover with a lid, and simmer on low for 30 minutes.
Serve immediately with egg noodles and garnish with chopped parsley.
