BAKED SWEDISH MEATBALLS

One of the things I do when making a new recipe is make it EXACTLY the way it is written the first time.  The next time through I make the changes that appeal to my family’s tastes.  I don’t post them until I’ve tried them the second time and plan to make them yet again.  These meatballs were one of those recipes.

BAKED SWEDISH MEATBALLS

  • 1 Vidalia onion, finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon fennel seeds, finely crushed
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 slices white bread, no crusts, torn into crumbles
  • 1 3/4 pounds ground sirloin
  • 3/4 pound ground pork
  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil
  1. Heat oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add onions, garlic, fennel, salt and pepper sauteing until onion is completely tender.
  3. Add onion mixture to a large mixing bowl and cool completely.
  4. Add bread to onion mixture and blend well.
  5. Add beef and pork, mixing with your hands until the onion mixture is well blended into the meat mixture.
  6. Form into ping pong size balls.  Should make 40 or so. SET ASIDE 2 uncooked meatballs for making your sauce.
  7. Line a jelly roll pan with foil.
  8. Arrange meatballs on foil.  I use a stainless cooling rack inside the jelly roll pan to put the meatballs on so the juices fall below.
  9. Preheat the broiler.
  10. Broil meatballs for 7-10 minutes or until cooked through.
  11. 1 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 4 teaspoons WONDRA flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar*
  1. Heat oil over medium high heat.
  2. Add your 2 uncooked meatballs, stirring and crumbling.
  3. Add flour and all spice, coating and blending the meat.
  4. Add stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat slightly and reduce to 1 cup.
  5. Remove from heat and add sour cream, butter and vinegar.
  6. Spoon over meatballs.
  7. Serve with mashed potatoes or noodles.

NOTE: *This recipe works well with flavored vinegars if you omit the fennel to change the flavor up a bit.
