Ingredients

  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ¼ cup onion finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped and divided
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ¾ cup beef broth
  • 1- 10.5 oz can condensed cream of chicken soup
  • 3 tbsp sour cream
  • Freshly cooked egg noodles

Instructions

  • Make the meat mixture: in a large bowl, combine the ground beef, beaten egg, chopped onion, minced garlic, panko breadcrumbs, nutmeg, one tbsp of parsley, salt, and pepper.
  • Make about 20 meatballs and brown them in a large skillet with the olive oil over medium-high heat. You may have to do this in batches. Don’t worry if they are not fully cooked at this time. Transfer the meatballs to a plate.
  • Make the sauce: to the same skillet, add the beef broth, condensed cream of chicken soup, sour cream, and the remaining tbsp of chopped parsley. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for two minutes.
  • Transfer the meatballs back to the skillet and simmer, with the lid on, for 5-7 minutes or until the meatballs are fully cooked.
  • Serve over freshly cooked egg noodles.

Notes

  • Don’t overwork the meat. When mixing the ingredients for the meatballs, use your hands and mix just until combined. Otherwise, you might separate the fat from the protein in the meat.
  • Wet your hands when making the meatballs to prevent the meat mixture from sticking to your hands.
  • Be careful if adding salt to the sauce, condensed cream of chicken soup is already quite salty.
