Ground meat can be used in many ways, but meatballs are by far the most popular form of cooking ground meat. About a year ago I showed you a recipe for oven-baked meatballs with a creamy mushroom sauce, where the meatballs were simply cooked in the oven.
In today’s post I will show you a variant for meatballs that are fried & then cooked together with the pepper cream garlic sauce to the end in one and the same pan. Super easy to prepare & all you need is a large pan with a lid. Have fun cooking!

…for meatballs with creamy pepper garlic sauce:
Peel and finely chop a small onion. Put 500 grams of minced meat together with the diced onions, an egg, 50 grams of breadcrumbs, 2 tablespoons of ketchup, 1 tablespoon of mustard, & a good pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl & knead with your hands until all the ingredients are evenly distributed. Then form 8 balls or patties of the same size from the meat dough & set aside briefly.
For the sauce, put 1 heaped teaspoon of cornstarch, 1 pressed clove of garlic, a pinch of salt, 300 milliliters of vegetable stock & 200 milliliters of cream in a tall container & stir with a whisk, then set aside until further use.
Heat a large pan with a good dash of oil, put the meatballs in the hot pan & fry them from each side for 2 – 3 minutes over medium heat until golden brown, turning once. When that’s done, add 2-3 teaspoons of pickled green peppercorns to the patties in the pan, also pour in the prepared cream sauce.
Then bring the sauce to the boil & allow to simmer gently with reduced heat & with the lid closed for another 6 – 7 minutes until the meatballs are cooked & the sauce has reached a creamy consistency.
Then spread the meatballs on plates together with the creamy pepper garlic sauce & serve with fries, potatoes, pasta or rice, for example. Have fun cooking!
