  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place egg noodles in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix the beef, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, pepper, eggs, and onion. Form into small meatballs around the olives.
  3. Heat the oil in skillet over medium heat, and cook the meatballs until evenly brown. Remove meatballs from skillet, reserving oil; set meatballs aside, and keep warm.
  4. Stir the flour into the reserved oil in the skillet. Gradually mix in water to form a thick gravy. Stir in sour cream, dill, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook until heated through. Pour over the meatballs, and serve over cooked egg noodles.

Sorry, but this just was not good at all. Let's start off with my kids, 10 and 6, would NOT eat this. Secondly, this also smelled horrible. The meatballs themselves had no flavor. (I did leave the olives out though) The sauce, it was way too thick which I tried to fix by thinning out with some white wine with no avail. It was still very thick and I didn't want the wine to become overpowering. There is also way too much sour cream. In short, the sauce over-all was just not good. The smell, appearance, taste and consistency make this practically an inedible meal.



The flavor is GREAT!! The dish is wonderful. But.... the sauce is not a sauce but a paste. I made it twice now, don't add the flour (none) and the sauce is perfect.



This recipe was great. It was a nice surprise to find the olive inside the meatball and it added extra flavor that you weren't expecting.
