by: the seat of my pants
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 c dried bread crumbs
1 t garlic salt
1/2 c milk
2 c beef stock, divided
1 large sweet onion, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks, then separated
3 T sweet paprika, plus a bit more to garnish
2 T flour
1 c sour cream
Combine all ingredients until well combined, form into 1 inch meat balls. Place on a try and broil until brown, turn repeat.
Place meat into a large skillet with a lid, scatter onions over the top, add 1 1/2 c of the stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 3o minutes. Remove lid, return heat to high, and allow liquid to reduce as you prepare a slurry.
Combine the remaining stock with the flour, whisking until smooth and no lumps remain.
Reduce heat to medium, sprinkle the paprika over the meat, then stir in the sour cream. When mixture is hot, stir in the slurry, let mixture simmer until thickened, stirring as needed.
