Yield: 6 servings


•           1 tsp. olive oil

•           1 small onion, minced

•           1 clove garlic, minced

•           1 celery stalk, minced

•           1/4 cup minced parsley (plus more for garnish)

•           1 lb. Best Yet Blended Ground Beef

•           1 large egg

•           1/4 cup seasoned breadcrumbs

•           Salt, to taste

•           Black pepper, to taste

•           1/2 tsp. allspice

•           3 cups no salt added beef stock

•           2 oz. light cream cheese

•           3 Tbsp. cornstarch, dissolved in 3 Tbsp. cold water

•           12 oz. no yolk egg noodles, cooked



In a large deep sauté pan, heat oil on medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Sauté until onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add celery and parsley and cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Remove onion mixture from heat and allow to cool.

In a large bowl combine beef, egg, onion mixture, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and allspice. Mix well and form meatballs with your hands about ⅛  cup each.

Add beef stock to the pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and slowly drop meatballs into the broth. Cover and cook about 20 minutes or until cooked through. Remove the meatballs with a slotted spoon and set aside. Strain the stock, add to blender with cream cheese and pulse until smooth. Return to pan and add corn starch dissolved in water. Simmer a few minutes to thicken.

Top cooked egg noodles with meatballs and sauce. Garnish with parsley, if desired.  Serve warm.
