Like many, I love eating the Swedish meatballs at IKEA. I decided to try making it at home so my sister can have a taste as well… Here’s my version of meatballs in creamy gravy…

Ingredients for meatballs:

  • About 400 grams ground beef
  • Half a Bombay onion – finely chopped
  • About 1 tablespoon parsley – finely chopped
  • I teaspoon dried Italian herbs
  • A pinch of salt
  • A teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tablespoon breadcrumbs
  • 1 tablespoon oil + 1 tablespoon butter (for frying)


  • Mixed all ingredients except oil & butter in a bowl, make into round balls – you’ll get about 25 – 27 meat balls.
  • Heat olive oil & butter in a pan, fry the meatballs on all sides until cooked & set aside.

Ingredients for Sauce:

  • 4 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoon flour
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 beef cube or 1 cup beef stock (if you’re using beef stock, no need to add the 1 cup water)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • Pepper to taste
  • (No need to add salt if you’re using beef cube)


  • In the same pan, add 4 tablespoon butter
  • Mixed in flour until the mixture turned brown
  • Pour in beef stock (or 1 cup water + 1 beef cube) & cream – mixed thoroughly
  • Add Dijon mustard, worcestershire sauce & pepper
  • Salt to taste if needed
  • When sauce boils, put the meatballs back in – mixed thoroughly & turn off fire.

Serve immediately with mashed potato or pasta..
