Baked mushroom meatballs

Servings 4-6




• 250 g beef mince
• 250 g big brown mushrooms, minced
• 90 g fresh breadcrumbs
• 45 ml fresh parsley, chopped
• 1 egg, beaten
• salt and milled black pepper
• 15 ml oil
• 1 tin tomato and onion mix
• 250 ml beef stock
• 15 ml tomato paste or sundried tomato paste
• 5 ml smoked paprika
• 1 roasted yellow pepper, sliced
• salt and milled black pepper
To serve:
• sour cream
• smoked paprika
• oregano or thyme leaves
• mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Combine all of the ingredients, except for the oil, in a mixing bowl. Using floured hands, shape spoonfuls of the mixture into meatballs. Heat the oil in a pan and brown the meatballs on all sides. Transfer the meatballs to an ovenproof casserole.
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and pour over the meatballs. Season with salt and pepper.
Cover and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Top with a swirl of sour cream, a little smoked paprika and oregano leaves. Serve with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
