  • 1 pound Certified Angus Beef ® ground beef
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir together bread crumbs and milk; let sit 5 minutes to allow bread crumbs to soak up milk.
  2. Add ground beef, onion powder, nutmeg, 1-teaspoon salt and pepper and mix thoroughly by hand.
  3. Roll out small meatballs using a tablespoon to portion each one, yielding approximately 24 balls.
  4. In a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium heat and sear meatballs for about 10 minutes, rotating often to brown evenly; remove meatballs from the pan.
  5. With pan still at medium heat, stir butter into remaining pan drippings to melt. Whisk in flour and simmer 2 minutes. Slowly whisk in beef stock and bring to a low boil while constantly whisking. Add cream and remaining 1/2-teaspoon salt, bring back to a boil and reduce heat to low.
  6. Return meatballs to pan and simmer about 10 minutes, rotating occasionally to ensure meatballs cook evenly.
