Juicy and tender meatballs soaked in creamy mushroom sauce, a little sourish and absolutely delicious. This meatball Stroganoff recipe is a hit and you really have to try it.
As regarding the meatballs, they are regular meatballs and you can use your favorite recipe. The sauce is what makes the difference. It’s a thick and creamy sauce, more or less sourish, with mushrooms, very easy to make. There are many variations for the Stroganoff sauce and you can add your favorite ingredients. To obtain the sourish taste I used mustard and pickles but you can use instead lemon juice.
Although all the meatball Stroganoff recipes that I found on internet are made with deep-fried meatballs, I prefer to use baked meatballs because they are more healthy than deep-fried ones and easier to prepare. You have to prepare the meat mixture, shape the meatballs, place them into a baking tray and place the tray into the oven. The oven will do your job! 🙂
You may serve these delicious meatballs Stroganoff warm, along with crusty bread or your favorite side dish.
