Standard

I’ve always loved this dish, only when I was a little girl, we used to use Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup. This was delicious but now I like to know what’s in my food, so I try to make everything from scratch.┬áThis recipe is delicious and just as good as that other stuff!

Ingredients:

1/2 lb. ground pork (or ground Italian sausage without fennel)

1/2 lb. ground beef

1 onion (1/2 sliced and 1/2 diced)

1 clove minced garlic

1/3 c. bread crumbs (high quality)

1 egg, beaten

1 t. Italian seasonings or Herbs de Provence (your preference)

1 T. Worchestershire sauce

2 c. sliced mushrooms

2 T. flour

1 c. beef or chicken broth

1 c. fat free milk

1/4 fat free sour cream

Directions:

Saute the minced onions and garlic in some olive oil. Place into a bowl. Add the meats, bread crumbs, egg, Worchestershire, and spices. Using your hands, mix altogether until well combined. Form meatballs about the size of a ping pong ball (or slightly smaller).

In a frying pan, heat some oil and brown the meatballs well on all sides. Remove from the pan and set aside. In the same pan, add the sliced onions and the mushrooms. Cook until the mushrooms are soft and all the liquid has evaporated. Add the flour and stir. Cook for a few minutes. Add the broth. Whisk in the milk and sour cream. Bring to a boil.

Return the mushrooms to the pan and reduce the heat. Cover and cook for about 20 minutes, making sure that the liquid doesn’t dry out too much. Season to taste.

Serve over some rice or pasta or mashed potatoes.
