The recipe comes from foodgoblin.com. Since there are only two of us regularly eating meals, I reduced the recipe by half. That is the way I will tell it to you. For the first time in my life, I had a little herb garden growing this summer and dill is one of the main plants. I’ve fallen in love. In an effort to save some of the precious herb, I took many sprigs and put them into a quart jar of white vinegar about a month ago. Now I just need something to do with it. I did use it in this recipe, but the first time I made this I stuck to the white wine vinegar as listed here. I doubt many of you have a dill-infused vinegar on hand. I think mustard sauce on salmon is wonderful and this is the BEST. Seriously.

  • Ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 1 Tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Pinch salt
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh dill weed, chopped
  • Zest of half a lemon
  • 1 Tbsp. lemon juice

Whisk together mustard, honey and vinegar. Whisk in olive oil until it is emulsified and has thickened. Whisk in salt, sugar, dill, lemon zest, and juice. Serve.

Meatballs:

1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup soft bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 lb. ground pork
1/4 cup butter, cubed

Combine all ingredients, except butter, and form into 1-1/2″ balls. In a large skillet, cook the meatballs in butter, in batches until they are well browned and cooked through. Remove from skillet.

Dill Cream Sauce:

2 Tbsp. flour
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup beef broth
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dill seed

Whisk together all the sauce ingredients. Pour into skillet and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Let simmer a couple minutes while stirring until it thickens.

Add in the meatballs and heat through. Serves 4-6. Tastes great served over mashed potatoes or noodles. We also like it served over Twice-Baked Cauliflower. Yummy!
