Meatballs in mushroom sauce with spinach and lemon is a wonderful, creative and tasty dish. Chopped spinach medallions are a great fit with the meat mix and the lemon gives a twist with the mushrooms in beef sauce complemented the flavors pure fun. Simple, fun and of course.....Super delicious!

  • Prep Time : 30 minutes
  • Cook Time : 60 minutes



  • Make the spinach according to the instructions on the packet. Squeeze it well and make sure its very dry, then place in a bowl on the side
  • With the help of a food processor, ground the onion and the garlic cloves as much as possible and place them in the bowl aswell
  • Add the ground meat, the egg, breadcrumbs, spices and the olive oil
  • Mix well with your hands until everything becomes one. If the mix is too "soft" - add some more breadcrumbs and mix again
  • Cover the bowl with saran wrap and place in the fridge for half an hour
  • In the meantime, let's head over to the sauce...
  • Slice the mushrooms into slices
  • Chop the onion
  • Remove the leaves from the celery stalks: Chop the stalk and slice the leaves
  • In a large pan, heat up the canola oil
  • When the oil is hot, add the onion and the celery stalk
  • Fry until the onion becomes clear and then begins to brown
  • Add the mushrooms and fry for another 3-4 minutes whilst mixing until the mushrooms stop giving out liquid
  • Add the flour and mix until the flour browns
  • Add the beef stock (or substitute) and mix well whilst scraping the bottom of the pan then bring to a boil
  • Add half of the celery leaves (the other half is not needed - you can throw them away, or keep them for the table for those who want more in their dish)
  • Squeeze the lemon juice in and mix
  • Let the sauce bubble on a medium heat for a few minutes on a medium flame - in the meantime let's make those meatballs!
  • Take the meat out the fridge, make a ball a bit smaller than the size of a ping pong ball and then slowly and carefully put it in the bubbling sauce. The sauce should be on a constant bubble - that way the flour continues to thicken the sauce and the meatballs dont fall apart in the sauce
  • When all the meatballs are in, let the sauce bubble for another 3-4 minutes
  • Lower the heat to a low-medium flame (enough for a light bubble to occur) - and cook for an hour

It really was as simple as that! Enjoy!

Serve with white rice and ALOT of sauce!
