1 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 1/2 pound ground beef
1/2 pound ground pork
2 eggs
1 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon cardamom
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup cream
1 medium onion, chopped fine
10 ounces beef broth
2 tablespoons butter, melted


Soak bread crumbs in milk for 5 minutes in a large mixing bowl. Add beef, pork, eggs, onion, 1 1/2 tsp. salt, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom, and pepper. Mix well. Shape into 1 inch balls.

Place on broiler pan and bake for 15 minutes at 400 degrees F degrees. Place browned meatballs in crockpot. Add 1/2 the beef broth, and remaining salt. Cover; cook on low 4-6 hours or on high 2-3 hours.

Turn crockpot to high. Combine butter and flour to make a smooth paste. Add paste to remaining beef broth and pour into crockpot. Cook until thickened, about 45 minutes. Stir in the cream and heat through.

HUGE hit! Everyone loved the meatballs. They were really tender probably because of the combination of beef and pork.

I serve these at every party we have and there is never any left. I double or even triple the recipe usually because they go so fast. The hold pretty well on the "warm" setting once they are cooked.
