Simmered Meatballs With Mushrooms

I loves to eat balls.  Noooooo..............what I meant is meatballs!  Be it beef balls, fish balls, prawn balls or meatballs, I like to try out  these recipes.  Usually when making meatballs, we will have to mince up the meat and add in other ingredients and thereafter forming into a ball. And meatballs I am sure is always a welcome to children and the elderly because it is easily chewable to digest in.

Recently I have came across a few bloggers posted some delicious meatballs and of course, I am going to make it at my soonest too.
