Ingredients

    1 1/2 tsp butter
    1 1/2 tsp olive oil
    1 large onion(s), minced
    1 pound(s) raw lean ground beef
    1 large egg(s), beaten
    1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
    3/4 tsp table salt
    1 Tbsp parsley, fresh, finely minced (or 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning)
    1/4 cup(s) canned beef broth, or chicken broth
    1/4 cup(s) white wine

Directions

In a large skillet, melt butter and oil over medium heat. Add onions;
cook, stirring occasionally, until they start to caramelize, about 8 to 10
minutes. Remove onions to a large mixing bowl and add beef, egg, red
pepper flakes, salt and parsley (or Italian seasoning); mix well to
combine. With damp hands, roll forty-eight 1/2-inch meatballs.
Place same skillet over medium-low heat. Add meatballs, broth and
wine; simmer until cooked through, gently turning meatballs once during
cooking, about 20 minutes. Yields about 6 meatballs per serving.
