  • 1 tsp salt  
  • 1/2 tsp caraway seeds  
  • 2 Tbsp vegetable oil  
  • 1 large chopped onion
  • 1 large green bell pepper, cut into 1-inch chunks  
  • 2 Tbsp paprika  
  • 1 16 oz. can stewed tomatoes  
  • 1/4 cup sour cream  
  • 1 8 oz. package wide egg noodles (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh parsley  


    1. In a large bowl combine pork, egg, bread crumbs, 1/2 tsp salt and caraway seeds; using hands or a wooden spoon to blend well. Shape into 1 1/2" balls.
    2. In a 12" skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and add meatballs; cook about 12 minutes, turning frequently until well browned on all sides.
