Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
- 1 pound ground Pork
- 1 large chopped Onion divided
- 1 small Garlic clove minced
- 4 cups sliced Mushrooms white or Crimini
- 1 tablespoon Hot Sauce
- 3 tablespoons chopped Dill divided
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Parsley
- 2 Eggs
- 4 tablespoons Butter
- ¾ cup Breadcrumbs
- ¼ Buttermilk you can substitute with sour cream
- ¼ cup White Wine
- ½ cup Heavy Cream
- 2 cups Water
- 1 beef Bouillon cube
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose Flour
- Salt and freshly ground black Pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375 F degrees.
Chop the onion and dill if you’re using fresh (recommended). In a big bowl add the ground pork, garlic, half the chopped onion and half the dill. Add eggs, breadcrumbs, buttermilk, hot sauce and salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into meatballs. The size is up to you.
Fry the meatballs, but don't cook them completely through, about 3 min per side.
Transfer them to a parchment paper-lined cookie tray. Place them in the oven and bake for about 20-30 minutes, depending on their size.
In the meantime start the sauce. First slice up the mushrooms. Mushrooms contain potassium and phosphorous and can lower estrogen levels which might reduce breast cancer susceptibility! Melt butter in a saucepan.
Add remaining onions and sauté for a couple of minutes. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 10 minutes.
Sprinkle with flour and stir. Add broth, cream, wine, salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes until sauce thickens. Remove the meatballs from the oven and add to the mushroom sauce. Add remaining dill and parsley to the sauce, stir, cover, and simmer for a couple more minutes.
Serve with rice. I can barely contain myself from licking the plate :)
