This German Meatballs recipe is a little different from your ordinary recipe for meatballs, as these meatballs are neither fried or baked.
Using the basic meatball recipe, form 8 meatballs, then gently simmer them in water, this will produce a great broth to make into a wonderful and tasty meatball sauce.
I make this homemade meatball recipe quite often and serve it with cooked asparagus or peas, and rice or potatoes.
The recipe makes 4 servings.
- Form the basic meatball recipe into 8 meatballs.
- In medium saucepan bring 2-3 cups of water to boiling.
- Reduce heat to simmer and add meatballs.
- Cover and gently simmer about 20 minutes, water should only move slightly, do not boil, as then they will fall apart.
- When cooked, remove meatballs with slotted spoon.
- Save broth to another bowl.
- 3 tbsp. butter or margarine and 3 tbsp. flour
- 2-3 cups meatball broth
- 1 egg yolk mixed with 1 tbsp. water
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. capers, optional
- salt and pepper to taste
- Melt butter or margarine in saucepan over medium heat, add flour, stir until bubbly, do not brown.
- Constantly stirring, slowly add some hot meatball broth, while bringing to a thick and bubbly boil.
- When desired thickness of sauce is reached, gently boil for a few minutes, then remove from heat.
- Add lemon juice, capers, salt and pepper to taste.
- Stir in egg yolk mixed with water.
- Return meatballs to sauce and heat through, but do not boil.
