WoW Chai..those sound great! And a good way to use some of the fresh mint I grow in my herb garden. Thanks so much, I'm definitely going to try them.
My SIL loves my Swedish meatballs. I think it's more time consuming than Chai's Greek meatballs though. Anyway..here it is.
Serves 6-8 as a meal
|1 pound ground beef|| 1/4 Cup Flour|
|1/2 pound lean ground pork|| 1 tsp paprika|
|1/2 cup minced onion|| 1/2 tsp salt|
|3/4 cup bread crumbs|| 1/2 tsp pepper|
|1 Tbs snipped parsley|| 2 cups water|
|2 tsp salt|| 3/4 cup sour cream|
|1 tsp Worcestershire sauce|
|1/2 cup milk|
|1/4 cup salad oil|
Mix beef, pork, onion, bread crumbs, parsley, 2 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper, Worcestershire sauce, egg, and milk. Refrigerate 2 hours (this makes it easier to form meatballs...but I've omitted refrigerating them when I'm short on time)
Shape mix by rounded Tablespoons into balls. In large skillet, slowly brown and cook balls in oil. (for more rounded meatballs...I bake them on a broiling pan in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 min until no longer pink inside.) Remove and keep warm.
Blend flour, paprika. 1/2 tsp salt & 1/8 tsp pepper into oil in skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring until mix is smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in water. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Reduce heat and gradually stir in sour cream, mixing until smooth. Add meatballs; heat through.
I've put these in a small crock pot and kept on warm to serve as an appetizer at parties, or served over rice or egg noodles as a meal.Enjoy!
