Beef Stroganoff Meatballs

Meet the Cook: A rich sour cream and mushroom sauce gives this dish an elegant flavor. Yet it's so easy to prepare for a special occasion or for company. The meatballs can be made ahead and frozen to save time, which is often in short supply since we live on a hobby farm with our three (soon to be four) children! -Chris Duncan, Ellensburg, Washington

    Excellent recipe. The Worcestershire really makes the meatballs extra tasty! I sometimes make the meatballs smaller and serve as a appetizer with tooth pics.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. I used a lot more beef broth than called for to keep the sauce thinned to a good consistency. Next time I'll use less flour or add it a little at a time.

    This dish is absolutely wonderful. It's become one of our family favorites but it tastes fancy enough for a dinner party. Pretty straight forward to prepare but a great result. Yummy!

    This are yummy! I doubled the recipe for the meatballs and served them with 1 recipe of the sauce over noodles. I froze the other half. I made another batch of the sauce another day and served them with several other appetizers.
