ingredients

directions

  • Combine meats, bread, onion, parsley, egg, salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper and the pinch of nutmeg in medium bowl.
  • Shape mixture into 1 inch balls, wetting hands as needed will help.
  • Add half of the meatballs to lightly oiled or sprayed large skillet over medium heat. Cook until browned all over, about 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer meatballs to paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all meatballs are browned.
  • Add beef and chicken broth to skillet and stir to deglaze, getting all the browned bits from the pan bottom. Return meatballs to skillet.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer, 30 minutes.
  • In a small bowl combine water and cornstarch, stir well to make a slurry.
  • Add to meatballs and broth and bring to a gentle boil to thicken.
  • Add remaining pepper, grated lemon peel and thyme and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • Serve over mashed potatoes, buttered noodles, or steamed white rice.
  • Makes 6 servings.
  • Note: If your family really likes gravy you may want to double the ingredients for gravy only.

    I've been using this recipe for a few months now to make "hamburger steaks" of sorts. (I use a 1/4 pound patty maker to shape them.) My husband I really like it; and the gravy is awesome. Thank you!

    Boy oh boy were these great! The sauce could've been a little bit thicker (according to my hubby) but the flavor was great! I didn't think this was a fussy recipe at all. I did cheat a bit. I used pre-frozen meatballs so I could just skip that step. Great dish all around!

    Delicious! Although for our family this really is more like 10 servings than 6. I used equal amounts of pork and beef and I served this with homemade noodles...yum! Thanks for the awesome recipe

    I agree with another reviewer who said this was a "high maintenance" recipe, but worth every bit of the effort. The juice didn't thicken with the first amount of corn starch so ended up doubling the amount and then the "gravy" was great. The taste of this dish is very scrumptious. Served over buttered noodles. Will definitely make again. Thank you for posting.
