Meatballs in Beer Sauce

I feel like it’s too hot to do anything, especially cook! You can still eat a nutritious, home-cooked meal without wearing yourself out or heating up the house. These tasty Meatballs in Beer Sauce from Baking Powders are the perfect meal for those steamy summer nights.
  • 1 lb. ground meat of your choice, chicken, turkey, beef, pork, soy etc.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups bread crumbs, regular or Italian seasoned
  • Herbs of your choice (if your bread crumbs have herbs you won’t need them)
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • Olive oil
  • 1/4 lb. of mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. light cream or milk
  • 1/2 – 3/4 cups beer of your choice (Corona, IPA, and lagers work great)

Cooking Directions:

  1. Allow ground meat to get to room temperature.
  2. Saute onion on low heat until tender.
  3. Add mushrooms and let them cook until they’ve released all the water.
  4. Combine ground meat, egg, bread crumbs and seasoning in a bowl and mix well. (Tip: If your meat are too sticky, add a bit more bread crumbs.)
  5.  Make ping pong-sized balls.
  6. Once the onions and mushrooms are done, slightly fry your meatballs until they are seared. (Tip: This prevents the meatballs from falling apart once you add the liquid.)
  7. Add about 1/2 cup of beer or about about 3/4 cups of light beer, such as Corona.
  8. Add one cup of water or of chicken broth and about 2 tablespoons of milk or light cream.
  9. Let the meatballs cook at low heat until tender. (Tip: If the liquid evaporates too fast, just add more water or chicken broth.)

Dobrou Chut’!
