How to make it

  • 1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • 2. Tear the slices of bread into little pieces, put them in a large bowl and pour 1/4 cup milk over the pieces. Set aside.
  • 3. Chop the onion.
  • 4. Melt 1 tbsp of the margarine, on LOW, in a large frying pan.
  • 5. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and sweat them until they are soft. Take off the heat and set aside.
  • 6. Get the bowl with the bread and mix in the beef, egg yolks, salt, pepper and onions. You can use a mixer if you have it, but if not, you can do like me and get your hands into it. Messy but worth it!
  • *Don't wash the pan where you sauteed the onions*

  • 7. Shape the meat mixture into little balls. At about 3/4in - 1in size I was able to make 46.
  • 8. In the same pan used for the onions, melt the remaining 2tbsp of margarine over medium heat. Add the meatballs and sautee until golden brown on all sides. About 10 minutes should do it. You may need to do this in 2 batches.
  • 9. When the meatballs are cooked, take them out of the pan with a slotted spoon or tongs. Put them in an ovenproof dish and put them in the warmed oven. The juices need to be left in the pan for the gravy.
  • 10. Using the smallest part of a grater, grate 2 cloves of garlic. Set aside.
  • 11. Bring the heat on the frying pan down to LOW and pour in the flour. Mix the flour in with the juices left from the meatballs. Cook for about 1 minute.
  • 12. Add grated garlic.
  • 13. Slowly add the beef broth while whisking. Then add the milk or cream. It will take a few minutes but keep whisking it until it thickens.
  • At this point you can just pour the gravy over the meatballs and serve them like that or serve them over rice. Either way, they're delicious!
  • Enjoy!

    Those are indeed lingonberries. I couldn't caption the pic to point out that it isn't a pic of my actual meatballs. It's a stock pic. I'm not sure if that's an issue...if it is, I'll remove it and put a picture of mine the next time I make them.

    I love IKEA, we're getting one in Denver soon -- I'm so excited. But until then, it's nice to have your recipe and being fresh, I bet it's better. Are those lingonberries I see in the photo? :-)
