Lamb Meatballs with Creamy Gravy Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 1 lb ground lamb
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tsp herb de provence
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cups broth
  • 1 cup whole milk
  1. Peel and chop the garlic, and finely chop the onion.
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl (except the broth and milk), and mix together.
  3. Shape into 15-20 balls and place them on a pan.
  4. Cover and put them in the fridge for 4-12 hours.
  5. When ready to cook them, heat a large cast iron skillet to medium/high heat.
  6. Add a tablespoon of butter, lower the heat to medium and put the meatballs on the pan.
  7. Let them cook for 2-3 minutes before turning.
  8. Turn them 3-4 times until they are done to your liking, and move them around the pan so they cook evenly.
  9. Remove meatballs from the pan and add ¼ cup flour, and stir to combine with the liquid on the pan.
  10. Slowly stir in 2 cups broth and 1 cup milk.
  11. Bring to a simmer, and salt and pepper to taste.
  12. When it has thickened add the meatballs back to the pan.
  13. Turn the heat off and let it cool off for about 5 minutes before serving.
  14. To take to a potluck I would put them in a pot or a crock pot.
  15. At home I served them with garlic mashed potatoes.
