Did you know today is National Pickle Day? I didn't either, but my Food Network calendar alerted me to this great holiday. This recipe actually has pickle relish in the sauce. Sound weird? Well, it was actually very delicious.
The recipe is from an old Cooking for 2 cookbook I picked up at a thrift store.
You will need some lemon, bread crumbs, beef broth, worcestershire sauce, eggs, ground meat, flour, pickle relish, parsley, onion powder and some noodles to serve.
Lets get this German party started! Beat up one egg.
Combine the first 8 ingredients listed in the recipe. Just use your hands, its the easiest way to go.
Form the mixture into meat balls. Mine are on a cute Corelle plate, of course.
Put them in a pan with the beef broth. Layers of flavor, the only way to go!
Cover and simmer these guys for about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, get some water boiling for your noodles.
So this looks TOTALLY gross, but you just have to skim off all that nasty fat and you will be good to go. Get the balls out of the pan and start removing fat.
Still looking pretty darn disgusting, but I promise it gets better.
Combine the flour with cold water...
Gradually pour it into the simmering broth...
Add in the worcestershire sauce and the pickle relish and stir stir stir until it thickens. Drain your noodles and get ready to eat!
Get the noodles in a bowl and top with the meatballs, sauce and a little parsley. This was so good, the ultimate comfort food and a great way to celebrate National Pickle Day!
