"When I'm at a Chinese restaurant having a hard time with chopsticks, I always hope that there's a Chinese kid at an American restaurant somewhere who's struggling mightily with a fork."--Rick Budinich

Devon Monroe-McClintic


1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
cup onion, minced
cup ground beef
cup ground pork
cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs
cup heavy whipping cream
teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
1 pinch all spice
5 large carrots peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour
teaspoon soy sauce
salt to taste
pepper to taste

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Cook the onions while stirring occasionally until they begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes.

Dump the cooked onions into a large bowl along with beef, pork, breadcrumbs, cup heavy cream, and spices. Mix well by hand and form into 1 inch meatballs.

Turn the skillet to medium high and add the meatballs and carrots. Cook until the meatballs are brown and almost crispy on all sides, about 5 to 6 minutes.

Sprinkle the flour over the top and cook while stirring for another minute to allow it to absorb. Pour in the broth, cup cream, and soy sauce and bring to a boil while scraping the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Simmer until the sauce thickens to a gravy, the meatballs are cooked all the way through, and the carrots are tender when pierced with a fork, 6 to 8 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper, spoon over whole wheat egg noodles, and serve.
