Roll into meatballs about ¾ inch in diameter.

Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat.

Brown meatballs on all sides, working in two batches, dishing them to a large plate when they are done.

Lower heat slightly and add the flour all at once to the sauce left in the pan, removing any browned bits. Add the broth, a little at a time, and whisk until smooth. Add sour cream and milk. 6. Bring to a simmer, stirring constantly until sauce is thick and smooth.

Add meatballs back into the pan, gently coating in the sauce and letting them warm through.

Test one to check that it is cooked thoroughly. There should be no pink on the insides.
