Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large lidded pan. Cook the meatballs for 3-4 mins over a medium heat, turning often so that they brown all over. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain away any excess oil, reserving about 1 tbsp.

  2. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for 4-5 mins, stirring to soften. Stir in the soup with half a can of water. Return the meatballs to the pan and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat, cover and simmer for a further 10-15 mins until the meatballs are cooked through. Stir in the dill, mustard and some seasoning. Serve with mashed potato and cabbage.

I agree with the other comments - nothing to write home about. I stirred some baby spinach into the sauce because it needed using before I went away and to up the veg content but thought the use of condensed mushroom sauce made it all a bit gluey - think you could have done better frying some mushrooms with the onions and garlic and then making a sauce with cream or soured cream/crème fraiche. Would also have used more dill.

An unusual way of serving meatballs. Tasted okay but they didn't look great. These were okay for a family meal but wouldn't serve to friends.

Easy to make. OK taste but don't think I would make again. There are better things to do with meatballs!
