  1. To make the sauce: Heat the sour cream, onion and peppercorns in a pan over medium heat for 4 minutes or until simmering. Add stock, return to a simmer and cook for a further 4 minutes or until slightly reduced. Strain through a fine sieve, discarding solids. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. For the meatballs:
  3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and thyme, and cook for 4 minutes or until light golden. Allow to cool, then combine with minced meat, egg and breadcrumbs in a bowl. Season. Using damp hands, roll 3 teaspoons of mixture into balls. Place balls on an oven tray lined with baking paper.
  4. Heat a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook meatballs, in 4 batches, shaking pan to evenly brown meatballs, for 6 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Scatter with dill and serve with the warm sour cream sauce.
