World Cuisine Wednesday

Sweden is a beautiful country, blessed with a vast countryside, charming cities and thousands of lakes and small islands. People from every corner of the world travel to Sweden each year to witness the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) in Lapland. Others catch a cheap flight to Stockholm to visit some of its many museums, tour the Royal Palace and admire the perfectly preserved architecture of the Old Town.

Today, let’s travel to Sweden and try one of its most famous dishes – Swedish Meatballs! There are a few variations on this recipe, but this one is my favorite.

Swedish Meatballs

• 2 lbs lean ground beef
• 2 eggs
• 1 small onion, minced
• ½ tsp dry mustard
• 1 c milk
• ½ cup bread crumbs
• Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°.

Either by hand or with a handheld mixer, thoroughly mix all ingredients together until well blended. Form into balls about an inch and half in diameter.

Place meatballs onto ungreased baking sheets and bake for 15 minutes, or until meat is cooked all the way through.

Sauce for Meatballs

• ¼ c cream
• ½ c beef stock
• ½ tsp soy sauce
• 1 Tbsp water
• 1 Tbsp flour
• Salt and pepper to taste

Bring beef stock to a boil, then add remaining ingredients. Reduce to a simmer and stir constantly until sauce thickens. If desired, add meatballs to pan and simmer gently for 5 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!
