preparation (for oven baking)
Place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the fan-assisted oven to 220 °C / 430 °F or a conventional oven to 230 °C / 445 °F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
stir the ingredients for the meatballs
In a bowl, combine bread cut into small pieces, warm milk, diced onion, garlic, and chopped parsley. Season with BAM Spices Arabic Coffee Mixture (or 1 tsp homemade mixture made of ground nutmeg, cinnamon, and cloves). Add an egg and stir well with a spatula.
shape in meatballs and bake
Add the meat and the bread mixture to a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Knead into a smooth mixture and shape into 36 small meatballs, approximately 3 cm or 1-inch in diameter. Arrange the meatballs on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Place in the oven and roast for 12 minutes at 220 °C / 430 °F (fan-assisted oven) or at 230 °C / 445 °F in a conventional oven.TipFeel free to pan-fry the meatballs on the stove - more information above.
Make the sauce. Place a large pan on medium-high heat. Add the butter. When it melts, add the flour and stir well with a spoon. Cook for 5 - 8 minutes or until the flour is golden-brown. Be careful not to burn it. While whisking continuously with a whisk, pour the beef broth to get a smooth sauce. Bring to a boil and simmer for 3 minutes. Add the whipping cream and season with salt and pepper. Add the baked meatballs and simmer for another 6 - 8 minutes. Serve with chopped parsley and dill.
