How to Make Salisbury Steak Meatballs

Step 1: For the meatballs, place the ground beef, seasoned bread crumbs, brown mustard, ketchup, powdered beef base or crumbled beef bouillon cubes, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl. Mix until just combined, then shape the mixture into medium-sized meatballs. Place the meatballs on a plate.

Step 2: In a hot skillet or dutch oven, add 2 tbsp Land O Lakes® Butter. Melt it over medium heat, then add half of the meatballs. Move the meatballs around gently around the pan to brown. To a clean plate, transfer the meatballs. Do the same for the remaining meatballs.

Step 3: Add the onions to the now-empty skillet and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and the onions are beginning to soften.

Step 4: Whisk a half cup of beef broth with cornstarch in a small bowl until well combined.

Step 5: To the skillet, pour in 2 cups of beef broth. Add the Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, and mustard. Stir, scraping the bits off the bottom of the pan. Gently boil, then stir into the cornstarch mixture.

Step 6: Place the meatballs in the pan, adjust the heat to low, and simmer the sauce for about 10 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked and the sauce has thickened. If the sauce turned out too thick, just add a splash of beef broth. If desired, you can add a bit of Kitchen Bouquet to give the sauce a deeper colour.

Step 7: When done, serve the meatballs right away over egg noodles, tossed in 2 tbsp Land O Lakes® Butter and garnished with some minced parsley. Enjoy!
