Ingredients
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 3 eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 tablespoon ground cardamom
  • 1 cup yellow onion, chopped, plus 6 cups yellow onions, sliced
  • 1 cup salted butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons gravy maker seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup water
Directions
  • In large mixing bowl, soak bread crumbs in milk for 5 minutes. Add meat, eggs, salt, pepper, cardamom and chopped onions. Mix well and roll into 1 to 1 1/2-inch meatballs. Saute meatballs in 1/4 cup butter approximately 20 minutes. In a separate skillet, saute sliced onions with 1/4 cup butter, sugar, and pepper until caramelized, about 10 to 15 minutes. Remove mixture from both pans and place on separate plates. Deglaze both saute pans with the remaining 1/2 cup butter and beef broth, scraping up the browned bits. Cook over high heat for 1 minute. Place the contents of both saute pans into one large pot and add cream, onions, gravy maker seasoning and spices and bring to a simmer. Make a slurry with cornstarch and water. Whisk the slurry into the mixture to thicken. Add meatballs and simmer approximately 20 to 30 minutes.
