Swedish Meatballs

1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 pound bulk sausage or ground veal
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup dry bread crumbs
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 cup Beef Stock or canned beef broth
1/2 cup light sour cream

In a large bowl, mix meats and onion. Add eggs, bread crumbs, milk, and seasonings. Mix well with a large spoon or your hands. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour for easier handling. In the meantime, preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Shape meat mixture into 1-inch balls and arrange on a baking sheet with a rim. Bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer meatballs along with juices and beef stock to a 2-1/2-quart casserole dish lightly coated with cooking spray or oil.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Cover and bake meatballs until heated through, about 30 minutes. Stir in sour cream and bake, uncovered, until heated through once again, 10 minutes longer.

IKEA have - apparently - published the recipe!

This is from:-

Meatballs with Cream Sauce

How to make your own meatballs:

Ingredients:
# 250gm minced beef
# 250gm minced pork
# 1 egg
# 200-300ml cream and water (or milk and water)
# 2.5 tbsp. finely-chopped onion
# 50ml unsweetened rusk flour
# 2 cold boiled potatoes
# 4-5 tbsps butter, margarine or oil
# Salt and pepper

Instructions:

   1. Heat the onion till golden in a couple of tablespoons of lightly browned butter.
   2. Mash the potatoes and moisten the rusk flour in a little water.
   3. Mix all the ingredients until there is consistency and flavour generously with salt, white pepper and (optional) a little finely crushed allspice.
   4. Use a pair of spoons to shape the mixture into relatively large, round balls and transfer to a floured chopping board.
   5. Fry them slowly in plenty of butter.

How to make the cream sauce:

Ingredients:
# 100ml cream
# 200ml beef stock
# Chinese soya sauce
#     1 tbsp white flour
# Salt, white pepper

Instructions:

   1. Swirl the boiling water or beef stock in a pan.
   2. Add cream and thicken with white flour if preferred.
   3. Season well with salt and pepper.
   4. Serve the meatballs with the sauce, freshly boiled potatoes, uncooked lingonberry jam and salad. There you have the perfect Swedish meal!


This recipe was taken from IKEA’s Real Swedish Book

Re: AUTHENTIC SWEDISH MEATBALLS RECIPE

If I were you, I would use the recipe for the Greek meatballs, just change the spices. This is how I have done it several times. As for the sause, this you can buy in bags, to make it easy and fast. Just add some of the juices from the frying of the meatballs. Being married to a Greek, with kids loving meatballs from Ikea, this has been successfull several times. No-one knew the difference.
