Braised Beef Balls

Check out this retro ground beef recipe: giant balls served with brown gravy. These are braised and have our favorite: bacon fat. The horseradish must add a bit of zing. Don’t leave that out!

1¼ lbs. ground beef
1 small onion, grated
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon salt
few grains pepper
½ teaspoon dry mustard
1 tablespoon horseradish, if desired
2 tablespoons bacon fat

Mix beef with onion, egg and seasonings. Shape into 5 or 6 balls and brown well in a heavy skillet containing hot bacon fat. Add 1 cup water, cover and simmer about 30 minutes or until flavors are blended and meat is done. Thicken liquid remaining in skillet, if desired, with 2 tablespoons flour blended with ¼  cup cold water. Add enough milk to make 1¼  cups gravy. Serve hot. 5 servings.
