This is a super filling meal that I love to serve over either rice or mashed potatoes. I guess I’m different because I don’t add bread crumbs or rice in my meatballs.

I like my meatballs somewhat firm and since I usually have rice or mashed potatoes on the side I just don’t find it necessary because they still end up being juicy.

 

To ensure that the meatballs remain juicy, roll them just enough to create the shape of a ball and try not to press them too tight.

Obviously, the tighter you press the meatballs when rolling them, the firmer the meatballs will become once cooked.

Don’t worry, they will still hold their shape once you start cooking them.

Steps to make this recipe: 

To prepare meatballs:

Mix the beef, peppers, onion and seasonings in a bowl. Roll the beef into golf ball-sized balls.

In a large skillet, heat a few tablespoons of oil. Once the oil is hot, add the meatballs to the pan. Cook until the meatballs are brown, rotating sides every few minutes. 

Once the meatballs are brown, drain the excess oil. Sit the meatballs to the side while preparing the gravy.

To prepare gravy: 

In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the bell pepper and onions to the skillet. Sauté for one minute. Next, add the mushrooms and sauté for one minute.

Add the flour and mix with vegetables. Spread the mixture evenly and cook until brown, stirring frequently. 

Once brown, add one cup of hot water and stir. Add an additional cup of water and stir. Add cream of mushroom soup and stir. 

 

Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. 

If the gravy is too thick, add more water 1/2 c at a time until the desired thickness is achieved. Pour the gravy over meatballs and simmer covered for about 20-30 minutes.

Of course, you want to taste the gravy prior to pouring it over the meatballs.

As the meatballs simmer they will flavor the gravy, but I always add a little extra seasoning at this point.

 

Enjoy!
