Preparation time: 30
Cooking time: 15

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 4


• 500 g minced meat (ground beef or pork)
• 1 cup bread crumbs
• 1.5 cups milk
• 1.5 tsp salt
• 1.5 tsp ground black pepper
• ev. 1.5 tsp allspice
• 1 egg
• 2 tablespoons chopped onion (or red onion). Fried or raw.

• 25 g butter or margarine

• 2 tablespoons flour
• 0,5 dl cream
• 1 cup milk
• 3 cups gravy (water + "frying residues")
• 2 tablespoons veal stock or 1 beef bouillon cube
• 1 teaspoon soy sauce


Prepare the meal:
Mix bread crumbs and milk in a bowl. Let stand at least 10 minutes to swell.
Add salt and add the minced meat and mix thoroughly.
Add the pepper, egg and onion and stir to mix thoroughly. (Mix but not for long because then the batter can become "tough".)
Roll the mince with your hands into round balls and place on cutting board. Rinse your hands well with water to easier create round and nice meatball
Put in a frying pan, add the butter and let it become light brown.
Add in some of the meatballs, not more than they have room to roll around when you shake the pan.
Shake the pan occasionally so that they have a browning all around. When the meatballs are browned, lower the heat and cook 3-5 minutes (without lid). Time depends on the meatball the size.

Make the sauce:
Prepare a sauce pan and whisk the flour with the cream and little of the milk.
Pour in 3 cups hot water into the pan (heat cold water because you don't want to pour cold water directly into the pan). Beat in the sky in sauce pan. Beat in the veal stock and soy sauce.
Bring to a boil and then simmer about 3 minutes.

Serve the Swedish meatballs recipe with sauce, boiled potato and lingonberries..
