Swedish Meatballs

My husband and I always try to make a new recipe every week. This week we picked the Swedish meatball. I myself, am not a big fan of meatballs, or any big chunk of ground beef really, but these looked so amazing, I couldn't help but try the.
Here is the recipe. You wont be disappointed.

Ingredients:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 pound ground pork
  • 1/2 cup Panko or Gluten free bread crumbs
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 3/4 cup sour cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
Directions:

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently until onions have become translucent. About 2-3 minutes.
  2. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, eggs, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs.
  3. Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs in batches and cook until all sides are browned. About 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  4. To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
  6. Serve immediately. Garnished with parsley if desired.
