Swedish Meatballs

Nothing beats homemade meatballs smothered in a creamy gravy sauce, and they taste much better than the IKEA version!

Yield: 4 servings
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes


          2 tablespoons olive oil, divided     
1 onion, diced 

1 pound ground beef 

1 pound ground pork 

1/2 cup Panko* 

2 large egg yolks 

1/4 teaspoon ground allspice 

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

For the gravy

1/4 cup unsalted butter 

1/3 cup all-purpose flour 

4 cups beef broth 

3/4 cup sour cream 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.

Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
