Ingredients Original recipe yields 6 servings Ingredient Checklist Meatballs: 2 tablespoons butter ½ yellow onion, finely chopped 1 ½ teaspoons fine salt ¼ cup milk 2 large eggs large eggs ⅓ cup plain bread crumbs ¾ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg ¼ teaspoon ground allspice 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste 1 pound ground beef chuck 1 pound ground pork Gravy: 2 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3 ¼ cups beef broth ½ cup heavy cream ½ teaspoon white sugar ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste cooking spray Directions Instructions Checklist Step 1 Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in butter until onion begins to turn translucent, about 6 minutes. Step 2 Transfer onion mixture to a large bowl. Add milk, eggs, bread crumbs, black pepper, nutmeg, allspice, and cayenne pepper to the breadcrumb mixture; stir to combine. Step 3 Mix beef and pork into the bread crumb mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour. Step 4 Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat; whisk flour into butter and cook until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Slowly whisk beef broth into butter mixture. Step 5 Increase heat to medium-high, whisk cream into mixture and bring to a simmer. Stir sugar and Worcestershire sauce into gravy. Simmer until slightly thickened, 6 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Remove from heat and set aside. Step 6 Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly coat foil with cooking spray. Step 7 Roll 2 to 3 tablespoons meatball mixture into a ball using wet hands; repeat with remaining meatball mixture. Place meatballs on the prepared baking sheet. Step 8 Bake in the preheated oven until browned, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Step 9 Transfer meatballs to the gravy and cook over medium-low heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
