Ingredients

**COOK**

1 tablespoons Butter

1 onion, diced

**COMBINE**

1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground pork

1/2 cup Panko*

2 large egg yolks

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste

FOR THE GRAVY:

1/4 cup unsalted butter

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

4 cups beef broth

3/4 cup sour cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using KitchenAid mixer, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
