Ingredients

MEATBALLS:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 sweet onion finely diced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 tablespoon parsley finely chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste

GRAVY:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper or to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Instructions

MEATBALLS:

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  • Once the oil is simmering, add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko bread crumbs, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg, parsley, red pepper flakes, garlic powder, and cooked onion. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir until well until combined.
  • Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs and arrange them on a cutting board or large, flat plate.
  • Place the skillet over medium-high heat again and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Once simmering, add meatballs, in batches, and cook until browned on all sides, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

GRAVY:

  • Add the butter to the same skillet and melt it.
  • Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth, after that heavy cream, whisking constantly and cook until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in sour cream, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Add the meatballs back to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley.
