Broth and flour = paste
From EatingWell: March/April 2012
These Swedish meatballs are made with a combination of lean ground turkey breast and ground pork, flavored with nutmeg and cardamom and simmered in a creamy mushroom sauce. Serve over a brown rice pilaf spiked with almonds and currants or whole-wheat egg noodles.
6 Reviews for Swedish Meatballs
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.
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.
The basic recipe is great. Being Italian I know meatballs. I've never tried to make this before and thought the recipe was pretty basic. I used 2.25 lbs ground beef (to double the recipe for left overs) and added an egg white and about 1/2 cup more breadcrumbs (and a lil more salt). Also, in a bowl, I wisked together the sour cream, parsley and jelly (I used strawberry-what I had on hand) and then added it to the pan. Tasted a meatball and "wa-la"...YUM...definately making again! Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious! My gravy was a bit thin, but thats not a big problem. Still delicious, and I just ate it more like a stew. Freezes well for leftovers too, just reheat in a sauce pan on low/medium heat. I would add more mushrooms next time. They added a lot and I don't think more would take away from anything. Oh, and the cardamom is DEFINITELY not optional if you want that Swedish meatball flavor. If you just want tasty meatballs, you don't have to include it.
