Cooking for two? This hearty main dish has authentic sauerbraten flavor with less time and work required than the traditional recipe…and no leftovers!

Ingredients

Meatballs

1/2
lb extra-lean (at least 90%) ground beef
2
tablespoons finely crushed gingersnap cookies
2
tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/8
teaspoon salt
1/8
teaspoon pepper
1
small onion, finely chopped (1/4 cup)
1
egg white

Noodles

2 1/2
cups uncooked egg noodles (4 oz)

Sauerbraten Sauce

1/4
cup finely crushed gingersnap cookies
2
tablespoons raisins
1
tablespoon packed brown sugar
3/4
cup reduced-sodium beef broth
1
tablespoon red wine vinegar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In small bowl, mix all meatball ingredients. Shape mixture into 10 (1 1/2-inch) meatballs. Place in ungreased 13x9-inch pan. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until thoroughly cooked and no longer pink in center; drain.
  • 2 Meanwhile, cook and drain noodles as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • 3 In 2-quart saucepan, heat all sauce ingredients to boiling, stirring occasionally; reduce heat to medium. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  • 4 Stir drained meatballs into sauce. Serve over noodles.

Expert Tips

Instead of noodles, try serving the meatballs with brown rice or whole wheat couscous.
