On Monday, April 20, the IKEA team in the United Kingdom posted the tutorial for preparing the meal on their official Twitter page.
It is an explicitly-detailed guide that even includes an illustration of the steps much as they would add for any of their assembled furniture pieces.

No one is complaining!

In the recent post, Lorena Lourido, IKEA’s country food manager in the UK and Ireland, disclosed the reason they released the recipe. She said:

“Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”

According to the recipe, the meal only requires food staples that are commonly found in the average pantry, and even better, it is very easy to do!

The process is divided into two: one to prepare the meatballs, and the second is for the creamy sauce.  To make the meatballs, you will need:

  • Ground beef
  • Ground pork
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Egg
  • Milk

While ingredients for the sauce include:

  • Butter
  • Flour
  • Vegetable stock
  • Beef stock
  • Heavy cream
  • Dijon mustard

The total time of preparation is about one hour, excluding the time (2 hours) needed to let the meatballs set in the fridge before frying. This recipe produces a wholesome meal that can be eaten at any time of the day. Try it!
