How To Make IKEA Meatballs
The real IKEA meatballs with cream sauce easy to make at home. Best dinner idea with sweedish meatballs
For the meatballs
For the meatballs
- Start by finely chopping the onion.
- Then add the meat to a large bowl and add the onion over it, the crushed garlic, the breadcrumbs, the egg, the milk, generous amount of salt and the pepper.
- Mix everything together until the mixture looks like a paste.
- Then, shape the mixture into small round meatballs and add them to a plate. Use water when shaping them, so the meat won’t stick to your hands and to create a smooth outside layer for the meatballs.
- Add 3 ounces (or 100 ml) of vegetable oil into a pan and let it heat up for 2 minutes.
- After that, place the meatballs into the pan, leaving space between them and cook until golden brown. When done, place them in an oven tray covered with a baking sheet.
- While the meatballs are frying, preheat the oven at 400 degrees Fahrenheit (or 200 degrees Celsius).
- Place the tray with the meatballs into the oven and let them bake for 20 mins.
For the sauce
- First, melt the butter in a pan, at medium heat.
- Then, add a splash of olive oil so that the butter won’t burn.
- Slowly add the flour and whisk for 2 mins.
- Next, slowly add the stock and whisk continuously until you get a smooth cream
- Continue by adding the soy sauce, mustard and the cream while whisking. You want to have everything well combined.
- Serve the meatballs with a generous amount of sauce, boiled or mashed potatoes and of course, lingonberry jam.
