Autumn Essentials: Meatballs in a Yummy Gravy

Andy Anderson !


This is an easy recipe to put together, and is so good. And as the temperatures begin to drop, you’ll be glad you have this recipe to warm up your friends and family.

You’ve got wonderful cold-weather comfort food in under and hour. Tasty meatballs, surrounded by awesome gravy, mushrooms, and onions.

I’ll serve this dish over homemade egg noodles, or some nice smashed potatoes.

So yummy.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Autumn Essentials: Meatballs in a Yummy Gravy


  2. Gather Your Ingredients.
  3. Add the butter and oil to a sauté pan over medium-low heat.
  4. After the butter melts, add the onions, and mushrooms.
  5. Cook over low heat until the onions soften, and begin to brown, about 30 minutes.
  6. Chef’s Note: Let the onions and mushrooms slowly cook… Don’t rush this step. That slow cooking is going to develop wonderful flavor.
  7. Whisk the flour, Worcestershire, cayenne, and garlic powder into the beef stock.
  8. Add the stock to the onion/mushroom mixture.
  9. Simmer until the sauce begins to thicken, about 8 to 10 minutes, and then add the meatballs, and allow them to heat up in the sauce.
  10. Chef’s Note: At this point, taste the sauce and season (salt, pepper) to taste. Remember good chefs always taste their food.
  12. Serve while will warm over noodles, or some yummy smashed potatoes. Enjoy
