Sweden"s Best Meatballs

Meatballs and gravy is one of my husband's favorite's. This copy cat recipe received a thumbs up. These are by far BETTER than the frozen meatballs IKEA is famous for. There is a hint of nutmeg and allspice which adds to the flavor. When you order them at Ikea there are served with lingonberry jam which can be purchased in the store.



INGREDIENTS

1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
1 small onion, diced
1 ½ pounds ground beef (750 grams)
1/3 cup Panko bread crumbs
1 large egg yolk
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

GRAVY

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups beef broth
1 Knorr beef gravy pot (optional but really adds to flavor)
1/2 cup sour cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

INSTRUCTIONS


In a large bowl, combine ground beef, Panko, egg yolk, allspice, nutmeg and onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 20 large or 40 small meatballs.

Heat oil in the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and Knorr gravy pot and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 10 - 15 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired
