While the meatballs are baking begin making the sauce.

1 stick (1/2) butter
1 pound of mushrooms sliced
1/2 c flour
2 c whole milk or light cream (I used milk)
1 T beef base
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1/2 t pepper
4 c water

Saute the mushroom in the butter. Beat the flour and pepper into the milk until no lumps remain. Stir all remaining ingredients into the mushrooms, bring to a boil. Let simmer 5 minutes stirring constantly. Set aside to cool.

Divide the meat and the sauce evenly into 3 one-gallon freezer bags or reusable containers. 

To serve, remove the package from the freezer; let thaw in the refrigerator. Use your preferred method for  heating below:

Stovetop method: Empty into a skillet and bring to a simmer, do not boil.

Oven method: Empty into a casserole, bake 350 degrees 30 minutes.

While dinner is in the oven, cook up some potatoes or rice and dinner is ready to serve.

  1. just doublechecking. 500 sounds so high for the oven, even if just for 20 min. is that temp right? thanks/suz in ohio

    1. Yes it is high and it is correct! It sears and cooks at the same time. If you oven runs on the hotter side, feel free to lover the temp to 475.
