IKEA = 'Swedish meatballs' ... comes to mind...everytime I drove by IKEA.. on the way to Miss E's school...
And most of the time... the kids will subtly put forward their cravings for IKEA's meatballs.... 'Mom, Its been a long time since we last had Ikea meatballs'... and as usual this mom would reply ..' Yeah...' and it took a long time before this mom actually cook it for her kids... they eventually forgot about their request ... and cravings... poor kids... :)
so here it is... Swedish meatballs... minus the cute Swedish flag!!!
- 700g mince beef
- 1 brown onion - chopped
- 1/4 spoon mixspice
- 1/4 spoon nutmeg
- 2 egg yolks
- 2 slices of bread - process into breadcrumbs
- salt and pepper
Heat 2 tablespoon of oil in a frying pan. Pan fry the meatballs until brown.
For the sauce:
- 1 can of evaporated milk (can be substituted with cream)
- 2 tablespoon of plain flour
- 50g of butter
- 1 cup of beef stock or 1 cube of beef stock and 1 cup of water (depending on the consistency... may have to add more beef stock or water)
