This is a quick go to meal that is tasty, easy and impresses guests. I make my own beef meatballs but if you need to save time, you can use thawed frozen meatballs. Whatever works best for you.


  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp dried crushed rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 10 ounces of meatballs


  1. If you are using fresh meatballs make sure to brown them and cook slowly to make sure they are cook through.
  2. Whisk together stock, cream, flour and spices in a large saucepan over low heat until smooth.
  3. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in meatballs, and continue cooking until meatballs are heated through about 5 minutes.

I make meatballs with extra lean ground beef, panko, egg, garlic, salt and pepper. I use a cookie scoop to make sure meatballs are even. You can make these with ground chicken, ground turkey, pork and beef, venison, whatever your heart desires. If fat content is an issue you can sub heavy cream with whole milk. You will need to add a tbsp of flour to thicken.

By using lean meats, that will help reduce the fat content. What you serve it with will make a difference. I served it on spaghetti squash. Added fibre without adding carbs or many calories. That choice is yours. Basically have fun and make it your own.
