Semi Swedish Meatballs Recipe
Last week, I told you that I am NOT a cook but I can follow a recipe and I made, quite successfully if you ask me, Chicken Alfredo.This week, I thought I’d try something a little more challenging. I’ve never made meatballs because I’m not a big fan. I prefer a big ol’ steak.
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 lb ground pork (can sub more ground beef if you want)
- ⅓ onion, chopped
- 1 egg
- 2 slices bread, shredded into breadcrumbs
- ¼ cup milk
- salt, to taste
- pepper, to taste
- 9 tbsp brown gravy mix
- 3 cups water
- Place ground meat, onion, egg, bread, salt and pepper into a large bowl.
- Add milk and mix thoroughly.
- Form into balls and place into a large pan.
- Brown the meatballs on all sides until fully cooked.
- WHILE MEATBALLS ARE COOKING: In a bowl, slowly add water to the gravy mix while stirring to prevent lumps.
- Once the meatballs are cooked, add the gravy mixture to the pan. Simmer 15- 20 minutes or until gravy is the thickness you desire.
I think this would also be simple to turn into a freezer meal. Cook and freeze just the meatballs. When you want to make the meal, take the meatballs out and let thaw. Once thawed, warm the meatballs for a minute or so in the microwave and then add the meatballs to the gravy mixture in a large pan. Finish the gravy mixture as described above and heat until the meatballs are fully warm. I haven’t done it but it seems workable. I did make the meatballs one night and stored them in the fridge and finished the meal the next night. You could probably even make a large batch of the recipe and divide and store as well. Then it would simply require heating up in the microwave and serve as desired.
