German Meatballs and Garlic Noodles

I have been very sick the last few days and completely unmotivated for both lunches and dinner, hence the absence of posts and bento pics. SORRY! Since I didn't want to eat out again and I knew I had everything I needed for this recipe it was important to me that we have a good homecooked meal last night. This is what I came up with!
German Meatballs
Prep time: 15 minutes Cook time: 20 minutes
1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup of panko crumbs
2 tablespoons Italian parsley
2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 large eggs , white only
Sauce (in pan)
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1 cup white wine
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp Wrocestershire sauce
Wonderflour to thicken
coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

[1] Place the bread in a food processor and pulse until fine crumbs form. In a large bowl, combine the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, parsley, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and egg white(s). Shape the mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
[2] Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the meatballs and cook for 10 minutes or until browned, flipping frequently. Remove from the skillet to a plate lined with a paper towel.
[3] Add the garlic to the skillet and sauté for 30 seconds. Add the wine and bring to a boil and cook for one minute. Return the meatballs to skillet, cover, and cook 5 minutes or until done. Remove from heat.
[4] Remove the meatballs from the skillet to the plate and cover with foil to keep warm. Add sour cream, milk, Dijon, Worcestershire, Wonderflour, salt and pepper to the wine mixture in the skillet and stir well. Add as much Wonderflour as you think you might need (you don't want it too thick so really just a few shakes will do).When serving, pour the sauce over the meatballs.

Egg Noodles with Garlic and Parsley

Prep and cook time: 10 minutes
16 oz package egg noodles
1/2 teaspoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped

[1] Cook the noodles according to package instructions. In a small bowl, microwave the garlic and butter for 20 seconds or until melted.
[2] Drain the noodles and toss with butter mixture and parsley. Serve with extra sauce from the meatballs, if desired.
Note: You might have leftover noodles. Take for lunch with salt and pepper and Parmesan.

This is a fantastic side dish for most meals not just this one!

  4. Hate to ask - what is Wonder Flour? The recipe sounds yummy and easy! I will have to make - but just don't know what that is - Wonder Flour.
    Thanks for any info posted!

  5. Look for Wonder Flour in the baking aisle of your grocery store, it will be near the cornstarch and backing powder. It is a very fine flour that is used to thicken gravy and sauces.
