Easy Swedish Meatballs

These easy Swedish meatballs are comforting food at its best and after today you won't have to wait for your next trip to Ikea to enjoy them!

Homemade dumplings are made with a mixture of ground beef, ground pork, breadcrumbs, onion, and spices. It is the spices that make these meatballs so different. Nutmeg and allspice are used to give meatballs a sweet, spicy flavor that sets them apart from their classic Italian meatball.

How to make Swedish meatballs:

  1. In a large bowl combine ground pork, ground beef, onion, egg, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs, nutmeg, allspice, and parsley. Mix ingredients well and then roll into 1 1/2 inch balls.
  2. Put the butter in a large skillet and, working in batches, begin to fry the meatballs, cooking them on all sides until golden and well cooked, about 10 minutes.

Once the meatballs are cooked, it's time to work on the sauce. Oh that sauce! That's what dreams are made of.

The creamy brown sauce served with Swedish meatballs is similar to the sauce. The meat broth is added to a roux and whisked slowly until it turns into a smooth sauce.

Then add a bit of Worcestershire to give it a little added flavor and thick cream to make it a delicious, rich sauce that you'll want to put on everything.

Add your meatballs and let them cook in the sauce for a few minutes and you are ready to serve. I suggest serving them over egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Yum!

How to make Swedish meatball sauce:

  1. Once the meatballs are cooked, set them aside and start making your sauce. Add butter to the pan and once it melts add the flour, beating quickly and forming a roux. Cook 1-2 minutes or until golden brown begins.
  2. Slowly add meat broth, whisking all the time to prevent it from becoming lumpy. Once all the broth has been added, cook for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce begins to thicken.
  3. Add Worcestershire and heavy cream and continue cooking until sauce thickens enough to cover the back of a spoon.
  4. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook them together for about 5 minutes.

Tips for making Swedish meatballs easy:

  • I highly recommend using a mixture of pork and beef for the meatballs, but you can substitute them for beef if you prefer.
  • The size of the meatball will affect how long you need to cook it, so be sure to try one to make sure they're fully cooked.
  • Don't you have beef broth? You can substitute the chicken stock in the sauce.
