Good, but needs some tweaking!!!

I have made Swedish meatballs for years, but I actually used the old Mirro-Matic Pressure cooker recipe (same as my mother did in the 50's and 60's), and it was a clearer gravy, which I know isn't really Swedish!!! I liked this recipe a lot, and made it exactly as written, but thought the flour in the chicken broth tasted "raw". I am used to cooking flour a little in roux's to get rid of the raw flour taste. I wonder if it would be better thickened with a little cornstarch??? A couple of TBSP's of cornstarch can not be worse than all that flour can it? I also think the meat mixture needed a little more salt. Flavor was great, my guests liked it, I am just pickier!!! Great recipe though. I didn't have seedless raspberry jam as recommended, and used what I had with seeds, and it made no noticeable difference! Will probably make again with changes to the thickening agent!!! I served it with the brown rice pilaf and sugar snaps and peas with a lemon butter glaze. (not healthy, I know)!!! Just use lemon juice on the veggies, compliments the sweetness in the dish and rice.

Great all around, but....

AMAZING

This recipe was SO delicious and easy and healthy!! Even the kids loved it! (and they are crazy picky) I didn't change anything, except I doubled the meat balls for the same amount of sauce and it was perfect. The sauce was perfect, very tasty and just like a rich creamy sauce. I used 5% fat sour cream. Thanks so much! I'm recommending it on facebook! :)

Sauce was horrible

Broth and flour = paste

WOW

The meatballs came out juicy and great. I'm not sure what exactlyb 1lb button mushrooms mean (I very new to cooking) so I just used a bunch of sliced mushrooms. Also didn't find raspberry jam so I used strawberry jam and I used all lean ground beef, because I have a ton of it in the freezer. All I can say is WOW, I will make this recipe for life.

unique tasting sauce, meatballs taste amazing.

Tasty and easy to make

This was an incredibly easy and tasty recipe. I served it with egg noodles.

I made this recipe as it is shown except for the raspberry jam. I couldn't find seedless so I had to use regular and you can't tell the difference. I also didn't add the cardamom because I didn't have any.
