SRC: Swedish Meatballs

Secret Recipe Club is back after a short holiday break!

Secret Recipe Club

I received the blog From Grandma Loy's Kitchen. There were tons of fantastic recipes to choose from, but I saw this recipe for Swedish Meatballs. It sounded so simple and delicious. My Grandma was Swedish and every Christmas our family ate swedish meatballs, rutamuse and lutefisk. There is no recipe for her meatballs and I love to try different recipes to try and find the same flavors. This recipe was very delicious and easy (and even captured some of the familiar flavors).  Sometimes meatballs can be a bit of a pain to make, but broiling them made the process very simple. I decided to serve our meatballs over mashed potatoes, but it would also be delicious over pasta or rice.  Thank you for the delicious new recipe!


1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs (I used gluten free)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp allspice
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 egg
4 Tbl  flour
4 Tbl butter
2 cup beef stock or broth


Mix together beef, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, allspice, onion and egg.  Shape lightly into 1 1/2-inch meat balls.  Spray a broiler pan with non-stick spray.  Place meatballs on pan.  Brown meat balls quickly on all sides under the broiler.  Remove meatballs to a large casserole dish.

Melt butter, brown flour in butter.  Add beef broth and cook until gravy is smooth and thickened.  Pour over meat balls.  At this point, meat balls can be covered and refrigerated 2-3 days.  Cover and bake in 325 degree oven 1 1/2 hours. Serve over rice, noodles, or mashed potatoes.
