Next, put onions & mushrooms in the pan & sauté for another 3 – 4 minutes, turning occasionally. Then stir in 1 tablespoon of tomato paste & 1 teaspoon of thyme, allow to roast briefly & then deglaze everything with 200 milliliters of cream and 100 milliliters of vegetable stock.

Finally, put the meatballs back in the pan, bring the sauce to a boil and allow everything to simmer slowly with the lid closed over low heat for 7 – 8 minutes until the meatballs are cooked and the sauce has reached a creamy consistency.

Then season the meatballs with salt & pepper to taste, stir everything well one last time and then serve garnished with some chopped parsley, for example mashed potatoes are suitable as a side dish for that. Have fun cooking!
