2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 onion, diced
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground pork
1/2 cup Panko*
2 large egg yolks
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
4 cups beef broth
3/4 cup sour cream
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves


Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg and cooked onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
hey BOB,

I LOVE swedish meatballs, but have only had stouffers (frozen ick). I am going to print this out but,, I have a question. What is panko????????
Hi BW,
Laughing,, Panko are fancy schmancy bread crumbs. They originate from Japan. In my experience, any bread crumbs will do.
I hope you enjoy.

I never use nutmeg in my meatballs.

I am born in Sweden and the traditional meatballs are never with nutmeg but much grounded allspice.

The onion should be grated.

The gravy do I always do from what is in the pan after done the meatballs.

I only put in flour in the grease and later milk and soy sauce for the color and taste and then let it cooked to be thick.

In my case do I like to put in a spoon apple sauce in the gravy to make it be more tasty.

I eat meatballs traditional with cooked potatoes, lingonberry jam and pickled cucumbers....... and a big glass of cold milk !

Lingonberry can you buy at the IKEA store. IKEA have some Swedish food they sell.
