Swedish Meatballs

Gave my niece and nephew these (they have new twins and no time for anything but diapering, feeding & cuddling) and they immediately asked for the recipe. These meatballs are really good and really quick. 


INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • Approx 1 pound cooked, frozen meatballs (I used beef, but pork would be great too) and the small ones are best I think
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 cupbeef stock, or chicken or turkey
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ tablespoon Worcestershire
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

DIRECTIONS

  • Melt 1 tablespoon of the butter and the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and put in the meatballs- cook until nicely browned, 3-5 minutes then removeto a bowl & set aside
  • Add remaining butter to the pan, and when it melts sprinkle over the flour
  • Use a whisk to stir well until you have a smooth paste and then add broth, stirring to make sure you get all the flour from the bottom of the pan
  • When it’s smooth add the cream, mustard, Worcestershire and garlic powder
  • Let it simmer a few minutes until it thickens and season to taste with salt & pepper
  • Put back in the meatballs, allow them to warm through then mix in the parsley right before serving
