While you can find hundreds of recipes for Swedish meatballs, this straight forward method will easily be your favorite. Ground beef is mixed with spices, milk and eggs and then pan fried. A brown gravy is made in the same pan, incorporating all the flavor of the seared beef. The meatballs are then cooked again in the gravy making them moist and mouthwateringly good. Swedish meatballs are great to eat alone as an appetizer or meal or go great served over egg noodles.

  • In a medium sized bowl, mix the ground beef, panko, salt, pepper, allspice, nutmeg, parsley, onion and garlic powder.
  • Add the egg to the mix and knead all together
  • Shape small meatballs with the mixture and set onto a clean plate
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and sear the meatballs.
  • Turn the meatballs on all sides to brown them evenly. When they are cooked, move them to a clean plate and set aside.
  • Add the butter and flour to the same skillet in which you cooked the meatballs. Whisk together.
  • Whisk in the beef broth and cream. Allow the sauce to come to a boil for a few minutes or until it begins to thicken.
  • Add the meatballs back into the pan and cook for two to three minutes, coating the meatballs in the sauce as they cook.
  • Serve the meatballs while they are hot along with the sauce!
