  1. In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, green pepper and Cheddar cheese until well blended. Form into walnut-sized balls.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add meatballs, and brown evenly. Remove from the skillet, and set aside. Stir flour and instant coffee into the pan drippings. Add beef bouillon and water to the pan, and mix well. Bring to a boil, and allow to thicken. Stir in sour cream.
  3. Return meatballs to the skillet, and let them simmer in the sauce for 20 to 40 minutes. Serve as an appetizer, or over rice or egg noodles as a main course.

these meatballs were good but not a lot of flavor. I baked them also, took about 65 minutes.

Good. I used home made bread crumbs and regular strong coffee. The sauce was nice and thick and it just a little bit bland. Not sure I'll put in next time to enhance the flavor.

Solid. Very tasty. I'm going to use this to make mini meatball appetizers for my next gathering.

I made this last night. My husband liked it, but I thought it was just ok. I served it over noodles. I omitted the coffee. I added a lil more sour cream. I also made the meatballs larger than th...
