Yield: 3 servings

3/4 lb. lean ground beef
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground white pepper
1/8 tsp ground allspice
1 tsp grated onion
1 Tbs butter

3/4 cup beef broth, divided
1/2 cup sour cream
2 Tbs cold water
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 Tbs dried parsley

Meatballs: Crumble meat into bowl, and add salt, white pepper, allspice, and onion. Mix well, using your hands. Form into small meatballs of uniform size, about 1 inch in diameter. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and brown meatballs. When they are browned on all sides, remove from skillet and place into a medium saucepan.

Sauce: Increase heat under skillet to high and deglaze with 1/4 cup of the beef broth. Add broth to saucepan containing meatballs, cover, and simmer about 5-7 minutes. Remove meatballs from pot and set aside. Add remaining 1/2 cup beef broth and bring to a boil. Add sour cream to boiling sauce, whisking constantly to avoid lumps. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Whisk in cream and simmer another 5 minutes until sauce is slightly thickened. Add parsley. Add meatballs to sauce to rewarm. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve over hot noodles, boiled potatoes, or rice.
