We love this mushroom meatball with tomatoes, smoked paprika and sour cream recipe…

Serves 4 – 6


250g beef mince

250g big brown mushrooms, minced

90g fresh breadcrumbs

45ml fresh parsley, chopped

1 egg, beaten

salt and milled black pepper

15ml oil


1 tin tomato and onion mix

250ml beef stock

15ml tomato paste or sundried tomato paste

5ml smoked paprika

1 roasted yellow pepper, sliced

Salt and milled black pepper

To serve:

Sour cream

Smoked paprika

Oregano or thyme leaves

Mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Combine all of the ingredients, except for the oil, in a mixing bowl. Using floured hands, shape spoonfuls of the mixture into meatballs. Heat the oil in a pan and brown the meatballs on all sides. Transfer the meatballs to an ovenproof casserole.


Mix all of the sauce ingredients together and pour over the meatballs. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Top with a swirl of sour cream, a little smoked paprika and oregano leaves. Serve with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
