Meaty, beaty, big and bouncy. The title of a classic rock album (from The Who, you knew who) pretty much sums up the appeal of a classic platter of meatballs. Ground pork and panko, with a little onion, give them just the right fork-soft feel. Spike the creamy mushroom sauce with Worcestershire and mustard, and serve with cubes of roasted sweet potatoes and a layer of steaming buttered rice—and you’ve got your own greatest hits compilation on your hands.

Cook the rice
Preheat the oven to 450°F. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions). Fluff and keep warm.

Roast the sweet potatoes
Meanwhile, on a lined sheet pan, toss the sweet potatoes with a drizzle of oil, ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Roast, stirring halfway, 15 to 18 min., until browned and tender.

Start the meatballs
Meanwhile, halve, peel and small-dice the onion. In a large bowl, combine the pork, panko, ¼ of the onion, ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Form into 8 meatballs (double for 4 portions) about the size of a golf ball. In a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Cook the meatballs, partially covered, turning occasionally, 7 to 9 min., until partially cooked. Transfer to a plate and reserve the pan.

Make the sauce
In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the remaining onion, 1 to 2 min., until beginning to soften. Add the mushrooms and sauté, 3 to 4 min., until softened. Add the cream, demi-glace, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ⅓ cup water (double for 4 portions) and the remaining spices. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 min., until slightly reduced; season with S&P.
