Makes about 30 small meatballs

When it’s time to serve these, Ree Drummond advises you to “turn the skillet into a makeshift chafing dish and stick toothpicks into each meatball.”

1pound ground beef
1pound ground pork
cups panko
1egg
Salt and pepper, to taste
½cup spicy mustard
2tablespoons canola oil
1cup whiskey
3cups beef broth
3tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1cup heavy cream

1. Have on hand a rimmed baking sheet.

2. In a bowl, combine the beef, pork, panko, egg, salt, pepper, and ¼ cup of the spicy mustard. With your hands (or a large spoon), mix until well combined.

3. Using an ice-cream scoop, your hands, or a couple of spoons, form 30 balls, about 1-inch in diameter. Place the meatballs on the baking sheet and freeze for 10 to 15 minutes to firm them up.

4. In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat the canola oil. Cook the meatballs in 1 to 3 batches, turning them to cook all over, for 5 to 7 minutes per batch. Remove the meatballs to a plate and cook the remaining meatballs in the same way.

5. When the meatballs are all browned, pour the whiskey and beef broth into the skillet. Let the mixture to bubble up and simmer steadily for 3 to 5 minutes, or until slightly thicker. Stir in the remaining ¼ cup spicy mustard and the Worcestershire sauce. Stir and cook for 2 minutes more.

6. Return the meatballs to the sauce. Pour in the cream and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the meatballs are cooked through. Adapted from the “The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food from My Frontier”
