  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 onion grated
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 14.5 oz can low sodium beef broth
  • 2 cups milk. For best results use 2% or whole milk.
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 cups egg noodles
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese freshly shredded
  • fresh parsley for garnish


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, breadcrumbs, onion, garlic, egg, 1 teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper. Use a fork to gently combine meatball mixture to avoid over-mixing. Gently shape into about 20 meatballs.

  2. Heat olive oil in large skillet and brown meatballs on each side. They do not need to be cooked all the way through at this point.

  3. Add beef broth to pan scraping up browned bits from the bottom, then add milk, Worcestershire sauce and remaining teaspoon of kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper. Bring milk to a simmer, then add uncooked egg noodles and simmer for another 8 minutes uncovered on medium heat until noodles are tender. Remove from heat and stir in parmesan cheese and garnish with parsley.
