Meatball Marsala

February 12, 2017



1½ pounds Yukon Gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch chunks

Kosher salt

12 ounces ground beef chuck

12 ounces sweet Italian sausage meat

⅓ cup breadcrumbs

1 large egg, lightly beaten

2 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Freshly ground pepper

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

12 ounces sliced mixed mushrooms

1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

1 cup dry Marsala wine

1 cup fresh parsley, chopped


1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with water by 1 inch; season with salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer; cook until tender, 20 minutes. Drain and return to the saucepan.

2. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Combine the beef, sausage, breadcrumbs, egg, ½ cup chicken broth, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper in a medium bowl; mix with your hands until combined. Form into 12 meatballs (about 2 inches) and arrange on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil until browned, about 7 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large pot or Dutch oven over high heat. Add the mushrooms, ½ teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are softened, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle in the flour and stir to coat. Stir in the wine and bring to a boil. Add 1 cup chicken broth and return to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium high and add the meatballs. Simmer, stirring occasionally, while you mash the potatoes.

4. Add the remaining 5 tablespoons butter and ½ cup chicken broth to the potatoes and mash. Season with salt and pepper. Stir the parsley into the meatball mixture. Serve with the potatoes.
