Cooking Louisiana  -  Meatball Stew
Meatball Stew is a simple, quick and delicious meal. I've been cooking this Meatball Stew for years and especially when the little ones are hungry.

2 lbs. ground beef
2 eggs
1/2 onion minced
1 tbs. garlic minced
Lg. handful chopped green onions
2 tsp. creole seasoning
1/2 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. liquid smoke

Mix well and form small meatballs. You can fry these in a large pan, or bake them in the oven until done.

1 onion chopped
1/2 bell pepper chopped
1/2 onion chopped large (1" x 1")
1/2 bell pepper chopped large
2 fresh jalapenos de-seeded and chopped (optional)
1 stalk celery chopped
1 tsp. garlic minced
1/2 cup dark roux
4 beef bullion cubes in 2 cups water or 2 cups beef stock
cooked rice or mashed potatoes

Make the roux, add vegetables and sauté until onions begin to brown. Add bullion water and meatballs and bring to a boil. Simmer until a stew-like thickness is obtained. Serve over hot rice or mashed potatoes.
