Hey so this latest meal I have for you is one that just popped out of my head and I thought I would share it with you, recipe and all! let’s just get right to it shall we:( also I apologize for the fuzzy pictures, someday i’ll have an actual camera, until then this is what ya get!)
preheat oven to 350 degrees f.
first you want to roughly chop one onion and 3 carrots
add 4 mushrooms to a food processor and pulse until finely textured, pick out any big pieces
place veggie mixture into a large mixing bowl, add your 1 lb of ground meat, what ever you prefer, i’m using organic ground beef
add 2 tsp salt,1 tsp garlic powder,1 1/2 chili powder, 1/2 tsp pepper. mix with spoon. add 1 egg, mix with spoon. make into golf ball sized meatballs.
in a large skillet over medium high heat, add oil or butter, then add meatball and brown on 2 sides. don’t worry about cooking all the way through, the oven will take care of that.
speaking of which , add browned meatballs to a baking dish like so
and put in your 350 degree f oven for 20 or so min or until meatballs register at 170 degrees on an instant read thermometer.
tada! serve alone or over rice or with potatoes, or whatever else you can think of. they are pretty versatile in my opinion.
Optional: gravy. take drippings from the baking dish and add them to a sauce pan. add 2 tablespoons flour and 2 cups of milk. season to taste. bring to a boil stirring constantly, turn down heat to medium and cook for 1 min or so. ladle over meatballs.
