  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • For the Meatballs:
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs, regular, Panko or GF
  • 1/4 cup milk or water
  • 1½ lb lean ground beef
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • ¼ cup (4 tbsp) ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon dry mustard [See Note 1]
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce [see Note 2]
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • For the gravy:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce [See Note 2]
  • 1 cup unsalted beef broth
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch [See Note 3]
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • Optional garnish
  • chopped fresh parsley







  1. If you’re serving the meatballs with mashed potatoes: fill a medium pot with water about 3/4 full and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Heat this over high heat to bring to a boil. You want just enough water to cover the potatoes during cooking. While the water is heating, peel, and cube the potatoes. Remember: Smaller potatoes cook faster thank large chunks. Add these to the pot even if the water is not boiling yet. Be sure to salt the water liberally.
  2. Prepare the Meatball Mix:
  3. Into a large bowl, add the breadcrumbs and milk (or water) and stir to combine. (step 1 Below)
  4. Next, add the salt and ground black pepper. (step 2 Below)
  5. Add the onions and garlic and stir to combine. (step 3 Below)
  6. Add the parsley and the ground mustard and mix. (step 4 Below)
  7. Add the ground beef, ketchup, and Worcestershire Sauce. Mix well with your hands. (step 5 Below)
  8. Shape into meatballs about 1-1/2 inches in size. (step 6 Below)
  9. Cook the Meatballs: Add two tablespoons of olive oil into a large non-stick (Teflon coated) skillet set over medium-high heat. Teflon works best with these delicate meatballs.
  10. Add the meatballs to the skillet. If you have a smaller skillet, you may need to cook in two smaller batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Overcrowding leads to steaming rather than browning the meat. Brown the meatballs on all sides. Once browned, move the meatballs around the edge of the pan and start the base of the gravy in the middle area of the skillet. If you have a smaller skillet, you may need to remove the meatballs to a plate and set aside. (step 7 Below)
  11. Prepare the Gravy: Add butter to the center of the skillet and melt completely. Add onions and mushrooms and cook until onion is soft and translucent – about 3 minutes. Sprinkle the cornstarch over the onions and mushrooms, then stir to coat. I find this helps with clumping. Add the beef broth and stir to combine working out any lumps you find. Move the meatballs around back into the full pan. (step 8 below)
  12. Season the gravy with salt and pepper and bring to a full boil. Cornstarch needs to boil to activate thickening. After about 3 to 5 minutes, the sauce should begin to thicken. If the sauce becomes too thick add a bit more beef broth or water. If the sauce is too thin, mix another 1 tbsp of cornstarch into 1 tbsp of cold water and stir to combine. Then add this mixture directly to the sauce to thicken. Taste and adjust seasonings, if necessary. (step 9 below)
