Stove Top

Ingredients

1 1/2 lb
ground beef
1/2 c
bread crumbs
1 large
egg
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp
olive oil, extra virgin
2
carrots, chopped
1 small
onion, chopped
1 stalk(s)
celery, chopped
2 Tbsp
all purpose flour
2 Tbsp
sweet paprika
2 c
beef broth
1 Tbsp
caraway seeds

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large bowl, mix together the bread crumbs, beef, egg, 1 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Mix well and form into 1-1/2-inch meatballs.
2
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs in batches and cook, turning often, until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
3
Pour off all but 1 Tbsp. of the oil in the skillet and add the carrots, onion and celery. Cook, stirring constantly, until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the flour and paprika and cook for 1 minute. Pour in the beef broth and bring to a boil over high heat, scraping up any browned bits. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the reserved meatballs and caraway seeds. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve with buttered noodles.
