Swedish Meatballs Recipe

I always loved Swedish Meatballs from this restaurant here. But they can be rather pricey. So, I skulked out some recipes which included Mrs Fluff’s recipe. Surprisingly, it’s really easy to make. Mrs Fluff’s recipe is paired with pasta. But I like it simple so I paired mine with some potatoes and salad to balance off the beef. I also like mine with a side of cranberry jam. It’s a Swedish thing that gives a nice balance of sweet and savory. It might not be for everyone but worth a try!

Ingredients for Meatballs (serves 4)

  • 1 tbsp chopped Italian Parsley
  • ¼ cup Panko or Breadcrumbs
  • ½ small finely chopped Onion
  • 1 clove finely chopped Garlic
  • ¼ tsp Allspice
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 500g Minced Beef
  • 1 Egg
From experience, it’s really much easier to mix dry ingredients first and then the beef.
  1. Mix the parsley, Panko, onion, garlic, allspice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. This will ensure that each meatball has an even amount of dry ingredients.
  2. When your dry ingredients are well-mixed, add in the minced beef and egg. Mix it thoroughly by hand. 
Your meatball should be way smaller than your palm.
  1. When you’re ready, start rolling your meatballs. You can make it any size you want. Remember that the smaller the meatball, the faster and easier it’ll cook. 
  2. Heat up some vegetable oil with some butter in a pan and fry the meatballs. 

Ingredients for Brown Sauce 

  • 50g / 4tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp Flour
  • 2 cups / 480ml Beef Stock
  • 1 cup / 240 ml Cream
  • 1 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • Lemon
  1. In a pot with low heat, allow the butter to melt and add in the flour.
  2. Stir the flour and butter till it turns brown. 
  3. Stir in the beef stock and cream. Make sure that it’ll mix thoroughly. 
  4. Mix in 1 tsp of dijon mustard. Alternatively, you could add in 2 tsp of Worcestershire sauce.
  5. Taste the sauce first before adding a squeeze of lemon.
  6. You can throw in some cooked pasta now if you’d like. Voila!
