Ingredients

1 lb
ground beef about 80% lean
1/2
onions, medium, chopped
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 tsp
pepper
1
egg, beaten
1 c
water
2 Tbsp
flour
1/4 c
cold water
2 c
milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix ground beef, chopped onion, salt, pepper, and beaten egg together (I use my hands)
2
Form into balls about 1 or 2 inches in diameter.
3
Brown in electric skillet set at about 325 degrees. You don't want to completely cook them, just brown them
4
Add 1 cup of water, lower the heat to a simmer setting and cover the skillet. Cook about 20 minutes or until one of the larger meatballs is cooked through.
5
Meanwhile, cook potatoes for mashing or noodles.
6
When meatballs are cooked through, remove from skillet.
7
Mix flour and COLD water and add to the liquid in the skillet to make a roux. Let cook until it starts thickening and add milk to make about 2 cups of gravy. Let cook 5 minutes or until the gravy is thick.
8
Pour gravy over meatballs and serve with noodles or mashed potatoes.
