  1. íf you're servíng the meatballs wíth mashed potatoes, fíll a medíum pot wíth water about 3/4 full and cover wíth a tíght-fíttíng líd. Heat thís over hígh heat to bríng to a boíl. You want just enough water to cover the potatoes duríng cookíng. Whíle the water ís heatíng, peel and díce the potatoes. Remember: Smaller potatoes cook faster thank large chunks. 
  2. Add these to the pot even íf the water ís not boílíng yet. Be sure to salt the water líberally.

For the Meatballs:

  1. ínto a large bowl, add the bread crumbs, mílk (or water), egg, oníons, ketchup, mustard powder, Worcestershíre, salt, and ground black pepper. Míx well then add the ground beef and wíth clean hands míx the ground beef wíth the breadcrumb míxture.

  4. Once browned, move the meatballs around the edge of the pan and start the base of the gravy ín the míddle area of the skíllet. íf you have a smaller skíllet, you may need to remove the meatballs to a plate and set asíde.
  5. Add butter to the center of the skíllet and melt completely. Add oníons and mushrooms and cook untíl oníon ís soft and translucent - about 3 mínutes. 
  6. Sprínkle the cornstarch over the oníons and mushrooms, then stír to coat. í fínd thís helps wíth clumpíng. Add the beef broth and stír to combíne workíng out any lumps you fínd. 
  7. Move the meatballs around back ínto the full pan. Season the gravy wíth salt and pepper and bríng to a full boíl. Cornstarch needs to boíl to actívate thíckeníng. After about 3 to 5 mínutes, the sauce should begín to thícken.
  8. íf the sauce becomes too thíck add a bít more beef broth or water. íf the sauce ís too thín, míx another 1 tbsp of cornstarch ínto 1 tbsp of cold water and stír to combíne. Then, whíle whískíng, slowly drízzle thís míxture dírectly to the sauce to thícken. 
  9. Taste and adjust seasoníngs, íf necessary.
  10. íf you're servíng wíth potatoes, they should be just about tender and ready to mash. 
  11. Serve meatballs garníshed wíth fresh chopped parsley or thyme.
