Meatballs and Onions in Paprika Sauce
by: the seat of my pants!

1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
2 eggs
1 c dried bread crumbs
1 t garlic salt
1/2 c milk

2 c beef stock, divided
1 large sweet onion, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks, then separated
3 T sweet paprika, plus a bit more to garnish
2 T flour
1 c sour cream

Combine all ingredients until well combined, form into 1-inch meatballs. Place on a tray and broil until brown, turn repeat.

Place meat into a large skillet with a lid, scatter onions over the top, add 1 1/2 c of the stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 3o minutes. Remove lid, return heat to high, and allow the liquid to reduce as you prepare a slurry.

Combine the remaining stock with the flour, whisking until smooth and no lumps remain.

Reduce heat to medium, sprinkle the paprika over the meat, then stir in the sour cream. When the mixture is hot, stir in the slurry, let the mixture simmer until thickened, stirring as needed.

Serve with mashed potatoes or side of choice.
