Directions

  1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven such as Le Creuset, heat broth ingredients (stock, bay leaf, cider vinegar, white wine, peppercorns, and 2 tablespoons capers) to a simmer over medium heat.
  2. Meanwhile, combine meatball ingredients, mix well.
  3. Form meat mixture into golf-ball sized balls (note: mixture will be a bit sticky and delicate to work with, but this is normal, and the result will be a moist and tender meatball!). Roll them in flour, and carefully place into hot broth; simmer each batch for 15 minutes, but do not boil. (Tip: do not crowd meatballs, ie only simmer about 10-12 meatballs at a time). Note that the broth will thicken as you add the flour covered meatballs, which will make a nice sauce.
  4. Carefully remove meatballs from the hot broth with a slotted spoon, and keep them warm in a covered bowl stored in the oven while making the sauce. Discard bay leaf.
  5. To Make Cream Sauce:
  6. To hot broth stir in the sauce ingredients and heat through, but do not boil.
  7. Add the cooked meatballs to the heated sauce, stir gently and warm through.
  8. To Serve:
  9. Serve Meatballs and Cream Sauce with boiled new potatoes (salzkartoffel) or hot buttered spaetzle noodles, and German Rotkohl recipe #108449. Sprinkle with snipped fresh parsley, for garnish.
  10. To Serve as an Appetizer:
  11. Make the meatballs smaller and serve warm from the crock pot with toothpicks, buttered rolls and potato salad recipe #309891.
  12. Freezes well.
