  • Step 1

    Put both types of minced meat in a large bowl. Peel the onion and garlic and chop both very finely, then add to the meat and mix everything thoroughly.

  • Step 2

    Add breadcrumbs, egg, milk and salt and pepper and mix well. Now form small balls from the minced mixture. Put them on a plate, cover and
    refrigerate for 1 hour.

  • Step 3

    After this time, heat oil in a pan and fry the meatballs on all sides. Once the meatballs are nicely browned, remove them from the pan, place them in a baking dish and let them finish cooking in an oven preheated to 180 °degrees for 25 minutes.

  • Step 4

    In the meantime, melt butter in a saucepan. Add flour and stir well until a roux is formed. Gradually add the broth, stirring until a thick sauce is formed. Stir in the cream and season to taste with Dijon mustard, soy sauce and salt and pepper.

  • Step 5
