250g ground beef

250g ground pork

¾ cup mashed potatoes

¼ cup chopped onion

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 tbsp full cream milk

1 egg (lightly beaten)

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp ground black pepper

¼ tsp all spice

3 tbsp unsalted butter (divided)

Cream Sauce:

1 tbsp all-purpose flour

200ml beef stock

100ml heavy cream

2 tsp light soy sauce

1/8 tsp coarsely ground black pepper

Preparation Instructions:

  1. Heat up a saucepan with 1 tbsp of unsalted butter. Saute the chopped onion until turn soft. Remove and transfer into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add ground beef, ground pork, mashed potatoes, breadcrumbs, full cream milk, beaten eggs, salt, ground black pepper and all spice. Mix to combine.
  3. Take 2 tbsp of mixture and shape into meatballs. Repeat the same until all the ingredients has been used up.

  6. Add in heavy cream and continue stirring until combined.
  7. Add in the meatballs, continue to simmer on medium high heat until meatballs are thoroughly heated and sauce has thickened to desire consistency.
  8. Dish out to a serving bowl, garnish with chopped fresh parsley. Serve with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam.
