Pork Balls With Mushrooms

Thrifty.Chef's picture
  Lean ground pork 1 Pound
  Egg 1 , lightly beaten
  Dried thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Dried oregano 1⁄2 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Fine dry bread crumbs 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Mustard 1 Teaspoon (Dijon / Prepared Spicy Brown)
  Butter/Margarine 2 Tablespoon
  Vegetable oil 1 Tablespoon
  Mushrooms 1⁄2 Pound, sliced
  Dry white wine 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chicken broth 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Sour cream 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)

1. In a mixing bowl, combine the pork, egg, thyme, oregano, salt, bread crumbs, and mustard. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls.
2. Heat the butter and oil in a heavy 12-inch skillet over moderately high heat for about 1 minute. Cook the meatballs, uncovered, turning frequently, until browned on all sides—about 5 minutes.
3. Reduce the heat to low, add the mushrooms, and cook gently about 2 minutes.
4. Add the wine and chicken broth, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Blend in the sour cream and simmer 5 minutes longer, until the sauce has thickened and the pork balls are cooked through. Serve hot over buttered rice or noodles with Shredded Carrots with Herbs and Lemon, or steamed broccoli with butter and lemon.
