Meatballs With Gravy


I made these Meatballs With Gravy using a combination of ground beef and chicken. It may sound complicated, but, rest assured it is a real easy recipe to bring to fruition. I then added sauté onions, breadcrumbs, eggs, and seasoned with dried oregano, parsley, paprika, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper to the mixed meat. Shaped them, brown in a pan, and finished in the oven! That’s it. :) Here, I served the meatballs with roasted Hasselback potatoes and gravy that’s made with roux and beef stock. The meatballs were flavorful, moist, and simply divine! You can either serve the meatballs as an appetizer or as a main course.


Meatballs With Gravy

Ingredients


2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Medium Yellow Onion, finely chopped
2 Cloves Garlic, finely chopped
530-540 g Ground Beef
300 g Ground Chicken Breast or Ground Pork
1 Cup (150 g) Breadcrumbs softened with 1-¼ cups of water
2 tsp Dried Parsley
½ tsp Dried Oregano
½ tsp Smoked Paprika
1 ½ tsp Sea Salt
2 Large Eggs
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
4 Tbsp Unsalted Butter for frying

Gravy
2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter
2 Tbsp Flour
2 Cups Beef Stock
1 Tbsp Black Pepper or to taste
Sea Salt to taste

Method


Preheat an oven to 350˚F.

In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté the onion and garlic with olive oil until soften, about 8 minutes. Remove the onion mixture and set aside.
Put the mince in a large bowl with onion mixture, parsley, oregano, paprika, sea salt, black pepper, and the breadcrumbs mixture. Mix everything together thoroughly, kneading it with your hands as though it were bread dough. Form about 80 to 90 meatballs the size of large walnuts, rolling them between your palms so they are compact and smooth. Keep the made ones on a plate while you finish rolling the rest.

Heat the butter in a non-stick frying pan and fry the meatballs in batches, making sure they are brown on all sides. You should be able to shuffle them by holding the handle of the pan and giving a good flick with your wrist. If not, use tongs to turn them. Remove with a slotted spoon and transfer the meatballs into a baking tray.

Baked the meatballs in the oven for about 20 minutes, or until they are fully cooked.

Meanwhile, make the gravy. Heat the butter in a large saucepan; add the butter over moderate heat. Then mix in the flour, and cook until lightly browned. Slowly add the beef stock and pepper. Cook and whisking until the gravy is thick and smooth. Season the gravy with sea salt.

Serve the meatballs warm with the gravy.

Makes about 90-100 walnut sized meatballs.

Not only are these bars good for you, they also taste great! So, if you are into raw energy bars, then you may want to try this recipe. If possible, please send me your feedback as well. Have a great weekend.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
