Swedish Meatballs

Chris again had another craving for a certain type of food, and that was swedish meatballs. They were amazing. He wasn't sure that the gravy was going to have the taste of swedish meatballs but it did. While it's time consuming, it's fairly easy to make. We served ours on a bed of egg noodles.

1 2/3 cups evaporated milk
2/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon allspice
Dash pepper
1 pound ground round
2 teaspoons butter
2 beef bouillon cubes
1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup evaporated milk
1 tablespoon lemon juice

1)Combine 2/3 cup evaporated milk, onion, crumbs, salt, allspice and pepper.
2)Add meat; mix well, chill. Shape meat mixture into 1-in. balls. In large skillet, brown meatballs in butter.
3)Dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water; pour over meatballs and bring to boil over medium heat. Cover; simmer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, blend together cold water and flour.
4)Remove meatballs from skillet, skim fat from pan juices and reserve juices. Stir 1 cup evaporated milk and flour/water mixture into pan juices in skillet; cook, uncovered, over low heat, stirring until sauce thickens. Return meatballs to skillet.
5) Stir in lemon juice. Serve with cooked noodles and butter.
