Preparation

  4. Bake meatballs for 15 minutes, until golden brown. Set aside.
  5. Melt butter in a pan on medium heat and allow it to brown slightly. Stir in the flour completely and cook for about 1 minute creating a pale roux.
  6. Add the beef broth, stir, and cook until it thickens.
  7. Add in the ground allspice, nutmeg, salt, pepper, and the heavy cream, stir, and bring to a simmer for 5 minutes.
