Before starting, preheat the oven to 450˚F. Wash and dry all produce. Cut potatoes into 1-inch pieces.Add potatoes, 2 tsp salt and enough water to cover (by approx. 1 inch) to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.Once boiling, reduce heat to medium. Simmer uncovered, until potatoes are fork-tender, 10-12 min.
Meanwhile, peel, then halve carrot lengthwise. Cut into 1/4-inch half-moons. Halve zucchini lengthwise, then cut into 1/2-inch half-moons.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.Add pork, breadcrumbs and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) salt to a large bowl. (TIP: If you prefer a more tender meatball, add an egg to mixture!) Season with pepper, then combine.Roll mixture into 12 equal-sized meatballs (24 meatballs for 4 ppl), then transfer to the prepared baking sheet.Roast meatballs in the middle of the oven until cooked through, 12-14 min.**
Meanwhile, heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter, then swirl the pan until melted, 30 sec. Add carrots and 2 tbsp (4 tbsp) water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, 2-3 min. Add zucchini. Cook, stirring occasionally, until veggies are tender-crisp and any water is absorbed, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove from heat. Transfer veggies to a plate, then cover to keep warm.
Add 1/3 cup (1/2 cup) water, broth concentrate, honey, cranberry spread and Dijon to the same pan. Season with pepper, then whisk to combine. Bring to a simmer over medium.Once simmering, cook, stirring often, until sauce is smooth and thickens slightly, 2-3 min. When meatballs are done, add to the pan with sauce. Toss to coat.
When potatoes are fork-tender, drain and return to the same pot, off heat.Mash cream and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter into potatoes until creamy. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Divide smashed potatoes and veggies between plates.Top potatoes with meatballs and any remaining sauce from the pan.
