  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion minced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 1/2 pounds 92% lean ground beef
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 3 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 4 ounces 1⁄3 less fat cream cheese softened to room temperature


  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until onion is tender. Add parsley and cook an additional 2-3 minutes then remove skillet from heat and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, salt, pepper and allspice. Add onion mixture and mix to combine. Form into 24 equal sized meatballs (approx. 37 grams each).
  • Add beef broth into the same skillet and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and place meatballs in the skillet. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
  • Use a slotted spoon to remove meatballs from the skillet and set aside on a serving dish. Add softened cream cheese to the skillet and whisk into broth until smooth. Add meatballs back to the skillet and let simmer until sauce has thickened.
