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
- 500g Minced Beef
- 1 Egg
- 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.
- When your dry ingredients are well-mixed, add in the minced beef and egg. Mix it thoroughly by hand.
- 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.
- 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
