Put the mince beef, onion & garlic (if using) into a bowl. Add salt, Parmesan cheese & enough lightly beaten egg to bind the mixture. Divide into 8-10 portions with lightly oiled fingers. Roll in the seasoned flour, then fry until brown.
Drain away the excess fat, stir in the condensed mushroom soup plus a can of water. Bring to the boil & simmer gently for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Check the seasoning. Serve with mashed potatoes & vegetables.
You can add oregano or mixed herbs to the meatballs. And if you like a little heat, try adding a very small pinch of chilli.
