When you’re ready to serve, go ahead and boil up some egg noodles before making the gravy. From there, you can let the meatballs cook through, simmered in a homemade gravy of beef broth, ketchup and Worcestershire. It’s so good, you’ll want to skip the meatballs and drink the gravy with a spoon!

Salisbury Steak Meatballs

An easy, comforting, budget-friendly meal that the whole family will love! You can also make the meatballs ahead of time!

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces egg noodles
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/3 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter

For the gravy

  • 2 cups beef broth, divided, or more, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, bread crumbs, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire and egg yolks; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 20 meatballs.
  3. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. To make the gravy, whisk together 1/2 cup beef broth and cornstarch in a small bowl; set aside.
  5. Add onions to the skillet and cook until golden brown and translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Whisk in remaining 1 1/2 cups beef broth, Worcestershire and ketchup until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
  6. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and gradually whisk in cornstarch mixture. Stir in meatballs until cooked through and the sauce has thickened, about 3-4 minutes. Add more beef broth as needed until desired consistency is reached.
  7. Serve immediately with egg noodles, garnished with parsley, if desired.
