My eyes about popped out of my head. This guy had never been to Ikea before! Um, hello??? Swedish meatballs have EVERYTHING to do with Ikea! Now we really had to stop and get this guy some meatballs! Our first stop the cafe was closed, so obviously we had to go back again.
Ikea Swedish Meatballs (Recipe from "Swedish Cooking")
1 onion (I only used half)
1 tbsp butter
1 lb mixed ground meat, such as beef and veal (only had beef, worked just fine!)
2 1/2 cups breadcrumbs
1 cup milk
1/2 bunch parsley
2 tbsp butter/lard for cooking
Peel and chop the onion. Melt the butter in a pan and saute the onion. Thoroughly combine the meat with the egg and breadcrumbs, then mix in the onion. Season the meat mixture with salt and pepper and knead into a smooth mass. Add enough milk to keep it supple (I didn't use the entire cup). Finley chop the parsley and stir into the meat mixture. With damp hands, form small balls from the mass (I got almost 30 out of it). Heat butter or lard in a pan and brown the meatballs on all sides (Mine took about 12 minutes until they were done, use a meat thermometer for more accuracy on done-ness). Serve with rice.
