1.) Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

2.) In a large bowl mix together: ground beef, eggs, bread crumbs, garlic powder, ground mustard, thyme, paprika, parsley, Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper.

3.) Form large tennis-ball sized meatballs and place in a greased casserole dish. Brush tops with oil and place in oven. Cook for 15-20 minutes until nicely browned.

4.) Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a large skillet over medium heat. When oil is hot, add mushrooms and onion wedges and saute until both begin to carmalize.

5.) Pour 1 cup beef broth into the skillet. Make a slurry by placing 1/2 cup flour and 1 cup beef broth in a jar with a tight-fitting lid and shake vigorously. Pour slurry into mushroom and onion mixture and stir while mixture thickens.

6.) After meatballs have been removed from oven, place them in the skillet and cover with gravy. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until cooked through.

7.) Serve and enjoy!
