  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb ground pork
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 3/4-1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TB onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper


  • 3 TB all purpose flour as needed
  • 2 cups beef broth as needed
  • 4 oz sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Soak bread crumbs in milk. Mix in remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Shape mixture into small balls, about 2" wide. Place on a jelly roll pan, lined with tin foil. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes, turn several times during baking.
