Prep Time35 Minutes

Ingredients
1 pound lean ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1 cup bread crumbs
¼ cup whole milk
1 egg
½ white onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons butter, divided
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups Pacific Foods™ Organic Beef Broth
½ cup half and half
½ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ cup fresh parsley, roughly chopped to serve
Directions
  1. Prepare the meatballs: place beef, pork, bread crumbs, milk, egg, onion, garlic, salt, nutmeg and allspice in a large bowl and use your hands to mix everything into a cohesive mixture. Form meatballs into small balls (roughly the size of a Ping pong ball) using your hands. Set on a baking sheet.
  2. Cook the meatballs: heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add meatballs in batches and cook, turning every 1-2 minutes, until meatballs are browned on all four sides. Transfer meatballs to a plate and repeat with remainder of mixture. It's OK if meatballs are not fully cooked inside they will continue to cook in the gravy.
  3. Prepare the gravy: sprinkle flour over the remaining browned bits in the non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Use a wooden spoon to scrape bits around and cook the flour until thick and no longer looks dry - about 1 minute. Add beef broth and pepper and whisk until gravy is smooth and just beginning to simmer.
  4. Return meatballs to gravy pan. Simmer meatballs in gravy, uncovered, for 10 minutes, or until meatballs are completely cooked through and gravy has thickened.
  5. Remove the pan from heat and stir in half-and-half, gently shaking the pan to combine. Garnish meatballs with chopped fresh parsley and enjoy!
