Thrifty.Chef's picture
Ingredients
  Fine dry bread crumbs 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Finely chopped yellow onion 2 Tablespoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Ground nutmeg 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Lean ground beef 1⁄2 Pound
  Ground pork 1⁄2 Pound
  Ground veal 1⁄2 Pound
  Butter 3 Tablespoon
  All purpose flour 4 Teaspoon
  Beef broth 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Half and half 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
Directions

1. In a large bowl, combine the bread crumbs, onion, salt, nutmeg, and milk. Add the ground beef, pork, and veal, and mix thoroughly. Shape the mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls.
2. Heat the butter in a heavy 12-inch skillet over moderate heat until bubbly. Cook the meatballs, uncovered, turning frequently, for 20 minutes. Remove them to a platter with a slotted spoon.
3. Add the flour to the drippings in the skillet, stir until bubbly, then blend in the beef broth and half-and-half. Boil, uncovered, for 4 to 5 minutes, stirring, until the sauce thickens.
4. Return the meatballs and any accumulated juices to the skillet. Spoon the sauce over the meatballs and heat through—about 2 minutes.
