1 dl milk
1 tsp soya
3 dl meat sauce and water

2. Add chopped onion, egg, salt and pepper and finally stir in the ground beef until well blended.
3.Wash your hands, so the meat doesn't stick to your fingers, and form into balls about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
4. Put the meatballs in a frying pan and gently shake the pan occasionally.
5. Now it is time for the sauce. You can either make the souce in the fryin pan and use the meat sauce and water or you can use a saucepan with veal stock and water instead.
6. Stir flour with cold cream in a cup and add the milk.
7. Add this mixture to the pan and stir.
