Swedish Meatballs

1 1/2 cups unseasoned bread crumbs

1 cup milk

1 1/2 pounds ground chuck

1/2 pound lean ground pork

2 eggs

1 medium onion, finely chopped

1 3/4 teaspoons salt, divided

3/4 teaspoon dill weed, divided

1/4 teaspoon allspice

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom

1 (101/2-ounce) can beef broth, divided

1/8 teaspoon pepper

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/2 cup half-and-half

Soak bread crumbs in milk for 5 minutes in large mixing bowl.

Add ground meats, eggs, onion, 11/2 teaspoon of the salt, 1/4 teaspoon of the dill weed, allspice, nutmeg and cardamom. Mix well and refrigerate, covered, for 1 hour.

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Shape mixture into 1-inch balls. Place on rack of broiler pan and bake 15 minutes. Put browned meatballs in a slow cooker. Add 1/2 can of beef broth, pepper and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each dill weed and salt. Cover and cook on low for 4 to 6 hours.

To thicken gravy, turn slow cooker to high. Combine butter and flour to make a smooth paste.

Add paste to remaining 1/2 can of consomme and half and half. Pour into meatball mixture. Cook until thickened.
