Mixing the pork mince in a bowl with other ingredients to make meatballs

Place the meat in a large bowl.

Gently knead the mixture with your hands until it reaches a soft consistency and the seasonings are evenly distributed.

Formed meatballs the size of a golf ball on a baking tray

Portion the meat mixture into equal-sized balls, approximately the size of a golf ball or smaller.

Arrange the meatballs in a single layer on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Transfer the tray to the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until the meatballs are fully cooked through.

To prevent the meatballs from sticking, wet your hands from time to time while forming them.

In the meantime, prepare the sauce.

Melting butter in a pan before starting to make the sauce

In a large frying pan, begin by melting the butter over medium heat. Once the butter has melted, gradually stir in the flour, ensuring even distribution.

Gradually add vegetable stock to the pan, stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.

Bring the sauce to a boil. Then, add the mustard and pour in the double cream.

The prepared sauce is still in the pan

Continue stirring the sauce until it has reached a smooth, creamy, and thick consistency. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to your liking.

Once the meatballs are fully cooked, gently transfer them into the creamy sauce. Simmer for a few minutes until the meatballs are evenly coated and heated through. Your delectable dinner is now ready to be savoured.

The baked meatballs are gently folded into the creamy sauce

Serve the meatballs hot with mashed potatoes and your favourite side vegetables, salad, or just gherkins.
