Heat the oil in a pan and briefly fry the meatballs to seal, turning once.

Lightly brown the chopped onion in the oil. 

Add the chopped mushrooms and brown lightly.

Then add chopped tomatoes and the dissolved meat and mushroom stocks.

Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Pour stock over meatballs (stock should come to just half way up meatballs).

Cooked meatballs can be frozen in sauce.
