Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 onion, diced
2 garlic clove
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1/2 cup bread crumbs (Panko bread crumbs are best)
2 large egg yolks (or whole eggs)
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the gravy

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 t nutmeg
1/4 t allspice
1 t powdered espresso
4 cups beef broth
3/4 cup sour cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.


In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, bread crumbs, eggs, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.


Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.


To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth, espresso and spices and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.


Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.


Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
