Number of Servings: 3


    3/4 lb. lean ground beef
    1/4 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp ground white pepper
    1/8 tsp ground allspice
    1 tsp grated onion ( I take a little bit frozen chopped onion out of the freezer and mince it while it’s still frozen)
    1 Tbs butter

    3/4 cup beef broth, divided
    1/2 cup sour cream
    2 Tbs cold water
    1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 Tbs dried parsley


Meatballs: Crumble meat into bowl, and add salt, white pepper, allspice, and onion. Mix well, using your hands. Form into small meatballs of uniform size, about 1 inch in diameter. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown meatballs. When they are browned on all sides, remove from skillet and place into a medium saucepan.

Sauce: Increase heat under skillet to high and deglaze with 1/4 cup of the beef broth. Add broth to saucepan containing meatballs, cover, and simmer about 5-7 minutes. Remove meatballs from pot and set aside. Add remaining 1/2 cup beef broth and bring to a boil. Add sour cream to boiling sauce, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Whisk in cream and simmer another 5 minutes until sauce is slightly thickened. Add parsley. Add meatballs to sauce to rewarm. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over hot noodles, boiled potatoes, or rice.

**Makes 3 servings.**

    My daughter made this last night. We used half ground turkey and beef. Next time all beef - we don't eat pork. This easy recipe is as good as the more complicated Swedish meatballs we have always made This will be a regular at our house! Served with smashed Yukon gold potatoes. Noodles next time - 9/4/12
