One of my all-time favorites is meatballs made in the Swedish style. Even while I can’t say that this recipe for Swedish meatballs comes from the country of origin – or even that it’s inspired by the meatballs sold at Ikea – I can tell you that I grew up eating meatballs and sauce prepared in this method. And it tastes delicious! Better still, everyone in our family really enjoys them!
They are also great as meals to prepare in advance and stored in the freezer for use throughout the harvest season. Believe me when I say that you’ll want to prepare these mouthwatering meatballs again and again. And again. And again.
Making this gravy from scratch is much easier than using a package mix. That is quite simple to do! To prepare this sauce, you will only need four ingredients:
500 grams.Of ground beef.
2 large spoons.Of dried minced onion.
1/2 Cup.Of bread crumbs.
A large beaten egg.
1/2 small spoon.Of allspice.
1/2 small spoon.Of salt.
1/4 small spoon.Of black pepper.
1 large spoon.Of olive oil.
3 large spoons.Of flour.
2 large spoons.Of butter.
14-oz.Of beef broth.
1/4 Cup.Of whole milk.
Cooked brown rice or egg noodles for serving.
Bring the oven or grill up to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. To make cleaning simpler, line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper before placing it in the oven.
Mix the bread crumbs and milk together in a low-sided basin. Give everything a good stir. In a big sauté pan that is heated over medium-high heat, butter should be melted.
Sauté the onions, tossing them regularly, for approximately three to five minutes, or until they have taken on a pleasant aroma and developed a light brown color. Add the garlic when the heat has been reduced to a low setting.
Continue to cook for two to three minutes more. Take the pan off the heat, and put it somewhere where it can cool down.
Mix the ground beef, egg, and soaked bread crumbs with the milk, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, salt, and sautéed onions and garlic in a large basin. Add the mixture to the bowl containing the cooked onions and garlic.
Make use of your hands to blend the ingredients, but avoid overworking the meat in any way. Form the ingredients into a loaf on the baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Create a crisscross design on the top by cutting it with a sharp knife.
Cook for forty minutes uncovered in an oven that has been preheated. While the meatloaf is in the oven, make the topping for it by mixing ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar in a bowl. Put aside.
After the first 40 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the sauce mixture over the top of the meatloaf and continue baking for about another 30 to 35 minutes, or until the internal temperature reaches 160 degrees Fahrenheit (70 degrees Celsius).
