2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 to 1 pound ground pork
1 cup fine dry bread crumbs
2 medium potatoes, cooked and mashed
1/2 cup grated onion
1 beaten egg
2 teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons salt
dash pepper
1/4 cup vegetable oil
4 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 to 1 cup tomato juice, optional

Combine meat, bread crumbs, mashed potato, onion, egg, and seasonings in a large bowl, mixing well. Form mixture into small, walnut-sized balls. Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet over medium-high heat; brown meatballs on all sides, turning gently as they cook. Remove meat balls and drain off excess oil. Add beef broth to the skillet. Mix flour with a little cold water to make a smooth thin paste; stir into broth. Add meatballs back into gravy, cover, and simmer 45 minutes. If desired, heat tomato juice and add to gravy for more flavor. Serve with mashed potatoes.
