Full recipe in video below


1 pound 96% ground beef

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1 egg

1/4 cup low-fat milk

1/3 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon all spice

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

Cream Sauce:

1/4 cup light butter

1 tablespoon oil

2 tablespoons flour

2 cups beef broth

1 cup whole milk

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

salt and pepper to taste

  1. In a large mixing bowl, stir well to combine ground beef with breadcrumbs, egg, milk, onion, parsley, garlic powder, all-spice, salt and pepper. Mix well to form a uniform consistency.

  2. Take 2 spoonfuls of the beef mixture at a time and roll into meatballs. Set aside and lightly coat with some oil to keep them from sticking, if needed.

  3. In a large skillet, heat butter over medium high heat for 2 minutes until the melted butter sizzles. Add meatballs and cook until browned on all sides, about 7-8 minutes. Make sure to stir gently to prevent the meatballs from disintegrating. Set aside on a plate.

  4. In the same skillet, add olive oil and heat over medium-high heat for one minute. Stir in the flour, it should start to bubble and thicken. Whisk in beef broth and heavy cream. Keep stirring to combine until uniform and thickened, about 1 minute. Stir in dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and pepper.

  5. Add the meatballs into the skillet and toss well to coat. Cover the lid and cook over medium-heat until meatballs are cooked through, about 5 more minutes. Then continue to stir the cream sauce until thickened to a desired consistency, about 2 minutes.
