Step 1: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Wash and dry all produce. Dice potatoes into ½-inch cubes. Peel and finely chop onion. Peel and finely chop 1 clove garlic. Peel and wrap 2 cloves garlic in a small piece of foil. Cut broccoli florets off stalk; discard stalk. Cut florets into bite-sized pieces.

Step2: In a medium bowl, gently combine beef, half the panko, chopped garlic, 3 TBSP onion, ½ tsp salt, and plenty of black pepper. Form into 1-inch balls. Place meatballs and foil packet on one side of a baking sheet. Place broccoli on opposite side and toss with a large drizzle of oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake until meatballs are cooked through, broccoli is browned and tender, and garlic is very soft, 15-20 minutes.

Step 3:Place potatoes in a medium pot with a large pinch of salt and enough water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 10 minutes. Drain thoroughly and return to pot. Cover until ready to mash.

Step 4: Meanwhile, heat 1 TBSP butter in large pan over medium heat until melted. Add remaining onion and a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until browned and softened, 8-10 minutes. Add flour. Cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in 3/4 cup water until fully incorporated. Stir in stock concentrate and simmer until thickened, about 1 minute. Season with salt and plenty of black pepper. Reduce heat to low.

Step 5: Carefully remove roasted garlic from foil and place on a cutting board. Mash with a fork. Add mashed garlic, sour cream, and 2 TBSP butter to pot with drained potatoes. Mash, adding a splash of water (or cream) to reach desired consistency. Season generously with salt and pepper.

Step 6: Add meatballs to pan with gravy. Stir to coat. (If gravy has thickened too much, stir in a splash of warm water.) Divide mashed potatoes and roasted broccoli between plates. Top with meatballs and gravy.
