Growing up, whenever mom made her Swedish meatballs, I couldn’t wait until supper time. I stood as close to her as she would allow me while she cooked, tiptoeing up so I could see into pots and pans all the time. Finally, when it was time for supper, it was always better than I remembered.

How to make Swedish meatballs

To make the meatballs, combine all the ingredients for the meatballs and set aside.

Using a spoon or spoon, form meatballs from the ground beef mixture. Heat a skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Lightly coat the bottom of the pan with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent the meatballs from sticking.

Place the meatballs in the heated pan and turn them occasionally to make sure all sides of the meatballs are golden brown. It should take about 7-10 minutes.

Remove the meatballs from the skillet or skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

To make the sauce, lower the heat on the skillet or skillet over medium-low heat. Melt the butter and incorporate the flour, whisking until it turns golden.

Then slowly add the beef broth and cook until thickened. Then add the milk or cream, Worcestershire sauce, pepper and salt.

Keep stirring the sauce until all the ingredients are combined.

Return the cooked meatballs to the pan, turning them to coat them in the rich and delicious sauce. Add fresh parsley, if desired.
