Easy Beef Stroganoff (Using Frozen Meatball's) with Homeade Egg Noodles

I made Meatballs with Ikea Cream Sauce one night and had some leftover meatballs and sauce, so I decided to make two meals out of one. I added sour cream and paprika to the original Ikea Graddsas cream sauce recipe and made what tastes like a rich Beef Stroganoff without mushrooms (I detest mushrooms!) It turned out really well, and was quick and easy. So, here is the Cream Sauce Recipe with the additions and directions.

Easy Beef Stroganoff or German Style Gravy
Ingredients:

1 - 2 lb Precooked Meatballs*
2 Tbsp flour
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup Beef Broth or stock (can substitute beef bouillon dissolved in water)
1 tsp soy sauce
Pinch Salt and pepper, to taste
Pinch Paprika
1/2 Cup Sour Cream

Directions:
Heat Butter in small sauce pan. Add flour and cook stirring constantly for about 2 minutes. Add 1 cup beef broth or stock, 1 tsp soy sauce, and 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream, salt and pepper, paprika, and sour cream. Heat until slightly thickened. Mix with cooked frozen meatballs, or cook the meatballs in the gravy. Serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes.

* Make meatballs in advance by mixing ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, seasonings, onions, Worcestershire sauce. Roll into 1" balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake for approx 30 min @ 350*. When cooled place in freezer bags, label and freeze. To serve, thaw in refrigerator, microwave to heat up, or throw in your favorite sauce and simmer.

(Egg Noodles) Fresh Pasta in a Mixer or Food Processor
2 Cups Flour
3 eggs
1 tsp
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 - 1 Tbsp water

Mix Flour and eggs together. Add salt and mix again. Add oil and water. If dough is too sticky add a little flour. Scrape out of the bowl and knead on a lightly floured surface. Add flour if necessary. Knead for a few minutes (2-3). Let rest 20 minutes before putting through the pasta maker. Cut dough into 4 sections and put each section through your pasta maker. If you do not have a pasta maker, roll the dough out and cut into small pieces with a pizza cutter. You can also wrap the dough in plastic wrap and store in refrigerator for later use.
