Combine the chuck, half of the chopped onion, the garlic salt, pepper, bread crumbs, egg yolks, and 1/2 cup water in a large bowl.Mix well and form meatballs that measure about 1 inch in diameter.
Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs and cook, shaking and turning until well browned, about five minutes. (Don't crowd the pan; work in batches if necessary. Transfer to paper towels to drain.)
Pour off any excess fat from the skillet, leaving 3 tablespoons in the pan, and add the remaining onion.
Cook, stirring often, until softened, about five minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring until the liquid they give off has evaporated, 7 to 10 minutes.
Pour in the sherry, increase the heat to high, and boil until almost all the liquid they give off has evaporated, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour in the stock and bring to a boil.
Rub the butter with the flour in a small bowl until it forms a smooth paste. Pinch off pea-size pieces and add little by little to the boiling sauce, whisking constantly for three minutes. Add the meatballs, stir in the dill and sour cream, season with salt and pepper and cook over low heat until the meatballs are just heated through. Serve hot.
