  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place egg noodles in the pot, cook for 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
  2. In a bowl, mix the beef, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, pepper, eggs, and onion. Form into small meatballs around the olives.
  3. Heat the oil in skillet over medium heat, and cook the meatballs until evenly brown. Remove meatballs from skillet, reserving oil; set meatballs aside, and keep warm.
  4. Stir the flour into the reserved oil in the skillet. Gradually mix in water to form a thick gravy. Stir in sour cream, dill, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and cook until heated through. Pour over the meatballs, and serve over cooked egg noodles.

The flavor is GREAT!! The dish is wonderful. But.... the sauce is not a sauce but a paste. I made it twice now, don't add the flour (none) and the sauce is perfect.

This recipe was great. It was a nice surprise to find the olive inside the meatball and it added extra flavor that you weren't expecting.

This recipe was wonderful! A good twist on the ingredients of ground beef, sour cream and egg noodles! Very big hit!

I was leery of the olive/dill combo, but I tried this since it was so highly rated. OMG. My family LOVED this. It's the new go to every time we get fresh dill in our farm box.
