Recipe Steps

steps 9

4 h 10 min

  • Step 1

    In a bowl, combine the ground sirloin, egg, salt, pepper, italian seasoning, caraway, and onion powder. You can do this with your hands or a spoon.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    On a clean surface, form your meatballs. You should be able to get about 13 meatballs at 1 ½ ounces each.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Wrap each meatball with a single piece of bacon and secure them with a toothpick. Then, place them in a crock pot. It’s okay if one or two rest on top. Cook the meatballs on high for 4 hours.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    To make the sauce, melt the butter in a large skillet on low heat. Then, mince and stir in the garlic, allowing it to heat up for about 30 seconds.
    Step 4
  • Step 5

    Slice the mushrooms into thin slices. Cook them in the butter, with the lid on, on medium-low heat for about 5 minutes or until the mushrooms are soft.
    Step 5
  • Step 6

    Sprinkle the paprika over the mushrooms and stir the ingredients until the mushrooms are completely coated in the paprika. Then, stir in the heavy cream.
    Step 6
  • Step 7

    Cover the skillet and heat the cream until it comes to a simmer. Then, pour in the beef broth and the remaining spices.
  • Step 8

    Bring the sauce to a boil. Then, reduce it to a simmer and allow it to cook, uncovered, for about 5 minutes or until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
    Step 8
  • Step 9

    Finally, turn off the stove heat and stir in the sour cream to bring the sauce fully together. To serve, use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon wrapped meatballs from the crock pot and remove the toothpicks. Serve the mushroom sauce hot over the meatballs and enjoy!

    End product looks like raw bacon... I would definitely cook the bacon until golden if not crisp...

      I do not see nutritional information for this, and many other recipes Why is that?

          Hi there. Yes, the nutritional information is accurate. If you'd like to cut down on the calories, you can reduce or omit the dipping sauce. However, this is where much of the fat content for this recipe comes from, so keep this in mind. Hope this helps!

        I think bake in oven would crisp the bacon. I would eat it this way but my husband wouldn’t. Going to try tonight

          Boyfriend and I had this tonight and was awesome! Different spices but still same effect! Only thing is the meat wasn’t as seasoned so next time I’ll have to add even more!

            I think to make this edible for Americans you would need to crisp up the fat in a pan before serving!

              It doesn't look like the bacon is cooked. Is that how it is supposed to look?

                recipewriter 6 years ago

                Hi there! Yes, the bacon is fully cooked. Since this is a slow cooker recipe, the bacon does not crisp up as it would when cooked in a pan on the stove. Hope this helps!
