Meatballs with gravy


Preparation Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes Total Time: 50 minutes Serves: 4-6


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, beaten egg, minced garlic, chopped parsley, and salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together until they are well combined.
  3. Using your hands, roll the mixture into small balls, about the size of a golf ball.
  4. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter.
  5. Add the meatballs to the skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until they are browned on all sides, about 10-12 minutes.
  6. Remove the meatballs from the skillet and set them aside.
  7. In the same skillet, melt the remaining butter and whisk in the flour to make a roux.
  8. Cook the roux for 1-2 minutes until it is golden brown.
  9. Slowly whisk in the beef broth, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
  10. Add the heavy cream and stir until the sauce is smooth.
  11. Return the meatballs to the skillet and spoon the sauce over them.
  12. Simmer the meatballs in the sauce for 10-15 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the meatballs are fully cooked.
  13. Serve hot with mashed potatoes or your favorite side dish.
