Forget Ikea, Make Your Own Swedish Meatballs

I hate shopping. So going into Ikea is like the epitome of torture. The one and only upside is Swedish meatballs. I love Swedish meatballs. I grew up on them and they are comfort food at it's finest.

Thankfully, they're super easy to make, so I don't have to brave the trip to Ikea.

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp + 2 tsp flour
6 Tbsp sour cream
2 cups beef broth
1 Tbsp parsley
1 tsp oregano
Salt and pepper to taste

Meatballs, cooked

  1. Prepare the sauce by preparing a gravy. Melt butter in a pan and whisk in flour until light brown.
  2. Slowly stir in beef broth, whisking constantly, until the sauce begins to thicken (2-3 minutes).
  3. Add the sour cream, parsley, oregano and salt and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Toss in meatballs and heat through, stirring occasionally.
  5. Serve over a bed of rice.
