For the meatballs...

  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1/2 cup finely diced onion
  • 1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 Tbl. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 Tbl. fresh parsley minced
  • 1 Tbl. dried shallot and roasted garlic
  • or 1 garlic clove & 1 shallot clove, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly cracked pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 Tbl. butter for pan frying

For the mushroom gravy...

  • 1 Tbl. butter
  • 8 oz. sliced mushrooms
  • 2 shallots thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbl. fresh thyme leaves minced
  • 2 Tbl. flour
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups beef broth
  • salt & freshly cracked pepper

Instructions
 

For the meatballs...

  • Combine ingredients and form into 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Melt 1 Tbl. butter in a large skillet. Working in batches, sauté meatballs for 3-4 minutes turning until all sides are nicely browned. Remove from pan and reserve.

For the mushroom gravy...

  • Add 1 Tbl. butter, sliced mushrooms, and shallots and sauté for 4-5 minutes. Add the fresh thyme and cook an additional minute. Dust mixture with flour and cook for 1-2 minutes. The mixture will be thick. Gradually stir in beef broth 1/2 cup at a time, allowing mixture to come to a boil in between each addition. Add more broth until desired thickness is achieved. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Return meatballs to gravy, reduce heat to low, and allow to braise until meatballs are cooked through, about 15 minutes
