DIRECTIONS

  • The meatballs:.
  • Preheat oven at 350 F/175°C
  • Finely chop the onions.
  • Combine the meatball ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
  • Mix with your hands.
  • Let rest for about 15 minutes.
  • Once rested, roll the meat batter into balls. Mine tend to fit nicely in the palm of my hand. I would guess they are about the size of golf balls.
  • Place the balls onto a baking sheet with some room to breathe between each of them.
  • Cook in the oven for 45 minutes.
  • The sauce:.
  • Melt butter at a pan and add flour.
  • Once a little brown, add demi glace and blend until it's well mixed.
  • Add water and beef broth and let it "boil" for about 30 minutes.
  • Add cream and vodka.
  • The sauce should be a little thick, but not too thick, and definitely not watery.
  • Remove the meatballs from the oven, and place them in a big, oven-safe pot or bowl.
  • Pour the sauce over the meatballs. The bowl should be deep enough to have all the meatballs inside and no fear of sauce overflowing.
  • Replace the container into the oven at a low heat for 10 minutes.
  • Dish served with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam. Very yummy and worth the time to make!
