Meatballs

  • 1kg (2lbs) lean ground beef
  • 375ml (1 1/2 cups) gluten free bread crumbs
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) milk
  • 60 ml  (1/4 cup) chopped onion
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Stroganoff Sauce

  • 250ml (1 cup) chopped onion
  • 250ml (1 cup) thinly sliced mushrooms (cooked) or 1 can mushrooms, drained.
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) butter
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) gluten free flour
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) ketchup
  • 500ml (2 cups)  Sour Cream
  • 1 tsp gluten free Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 – 284ml (2-10oz) cans Baxters Beef Consommé (If you don’t have access to the Baxters brand, any other type of gluten free consomme will do).  If by chance you can’t get Consommé, use a well seasoned gluten free beef broth and a splash of sherry.
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the gluten free Meatballs:  Combine all ingredients together in large bowl.  Form into small meat balls and bake on a non-stick cookie sheet at 375F (190C) for 30 minutes. Remove from oven, drain and set aside.  Note:  If desired, you can always substitute the meatballs with thinly sliced and cooked beef strips instead.  Use your creative licence in the kitchen – don’t be afraid.

For the gluten free Stroganoff Sauce:  Brown the chopped onions in butter.  Add flour and mix well.  Add ketchup and consomme, cooking slowly until thickened. Add sour cream, mushrooms and meatballs.  Place in a casserole dish and keep warm until ready to serve.

Serve on a bed of pasta, rice or even mashed potatoes.  The sauce can be made up ahead of the time and heated prior to serving.  Just be sure to heat at a low heat to prevent the sour cream from splitting.

This is a great dish for a large party or for buffet.
