Instructions

  • Combine 1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup bread crumbs in a small mixing bowl and set aside
  • In a large pan saute the garlic and onions in 1 tbsp butter.
  • In a large mixing bowl add the beef, oregano, salt, pepper, egg, cream and breadcrumb mixture.
  • When the onions are translucent, add them with any leftover butter to the meat. Mix everything together thoroughly.
  • Heat some olive oil and melt another tbsp butter in the large pan on medium high. Form the meat into about 20 - 24 golf ball sized meatballs, brown them on 2 sides in the pan in 2 batches. You want them to be a deep brown on both sides with lots of brown stuff stuck to the bottom of the pan. This should take about 2 minutes for each side.
  • Remove the meatballs from the pan when browned on both sides, leaving any juices in the pan.
  • Deglaze the pan with the white wine and use a wooden spoon to scrape up all the brown bits.
  • Melt 4 tbsp butter in the pan, then add the flour and whisk vigorously to create the roux. Whisk in the beef broth and bring to a simmer. Whisk in the cream, worchestershire sauce and mustard.
  • Bring the gravy to a full boil, then reduce heat to medium. Return the meatballs to the gravy, cover and cook for 20 minutes or more.
  • Serve over egg noodles or mashed potatoes
