So, let's look at the main stages of making meatballs in sauce based on sour cream.
For making one kilogram of ground beefFor meatballs, take 900 g of beef or pork meat (50:50 can be mixed), about 100 grams of wheat bread, 100 grams of milk or water, onions, garlic and salt to taste. You can safely use chicken or rabbit meat - it's already your taste. From meat pulp, peeled from rough tendons and connective tissue and cut into small cubes, we make mincemeat. Shredded meat is combined with pre-soaked in milk bread, salt, garlic and onions, and mix well. To meatballs in sour cream sauce turned out to be light and airy, let the finished mixture through the meat grinder again.
We form meatballs
In the finished mince we add 30 g of butter, 2eggs and mix well. The resulting mass is cut into balls the size of a chicken egg and boiled for a couple or in slightly salted water until half-ready. For one serving, we form about 4-5 meatballs.
Cooking sour cream sauce
Sour cream sauce, which we will use forpreparation of this dish is obtained from dried flour and sour cream with the addition of white sauce, cooked on meat broth or vegetable broth. If at this point in time you do not lose weight and do not stick to any diet, then it is better to use meat broth and fatty sour cream. For dietary nutrition, a vegetable decoction is more suitable.
So, we will prepare meatballs in sour cream sauce based on classic sauce. It is brewed according to the following recipe:
Take 50 g of sifted wheat flour, heat, stirring with a wooden spatula. We try not to allow burning or changing its color.
Drain dried flour with 50 g of butter and dilute one liter of meat broth or vegetable broth, stirring well until a mass with a uniform consistency.
Then cook the sauce over medium heat for 25-30 minutes.
500g sour cream is brought to a boil in a separate bowl, and then add to the boiling sauce.
The resulting mixture of salt to taste, cook for 3-5 minutes, remove from heat and filter.
Meatballs, like cutlets in sour cream sauce,can be cooked with tomatoes. To do this, add 200 g of tomato juice to sour cream or 300 g of tomato sifted through a sieve. Only after this we combine sour cream with meat broth and cook the sauce.
We finish the preparation of food
If you want to cook meatballs in the oven,then lightly undercooked meat balls add to the saucepan, pour sour cream sauce and put in a preheated oven for 200 degrees for 30 minutes. You can finish the preparation of this dish and on ordinary fire with weak boiling.
