Swedish Meatballs

Updated: Apr 12

Warmed with spices and covered in a heavenly creamy gravy sauce, that goes well with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.



1 lb ​ground beef

1 lb ground pork

¼ cup flat leaf parsley, minced

½ tsp ground allspice

½ tsp ground nutmeg

¾ cup yellow onion, grated (about 1 medium onion)

2 tsp salt

½ tsp pepper, freshly ground

4 cloves garlic, minced

¾ cup panko*

2 eggs

2 tbsp olive oil

Creamy Gravy

½ cup butter

½ cup flour*

4 cups beef broth

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp pepper

1 tbsp lemon juice

¼ tsp ground allspice

¼ tsp ground nutmeg

1 cup heavy cream


In a large bowl, mix the beef, pork, parsley, allspice, nutmeg, grated onion, salt, pepper, garlic, panko and eggs until combined.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, measure out the meat mixture into roughly 35 (1.5 inch) balls.

In a large pan, heat 2 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Add ½ of the meatballs and cook until browned on all sides. This takes about 5 minutes. Set aside

When all of the meatballs are browned, pour off any excess grease in the pan, into a heatproof vessel. Lower the heat to medium and add the butter to the pan. When the butter begins to bubble, sprinkle in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Add the beef broth to the pan a little at a time.

Whisk the gravy until the broth is all incorporated. Add salt, pepper, lemon juice, allspice and nutmeg. Whisk a few more times. Slowly add the cream.

Once the gravy begins to simmer, add the meatballs back into the pan.

Simmer until the gravy has thicken up a bit and the meatballs are cooked all the way through, about 8-10 minutes.

Serve warm over mashed potatoes or egg noodles
