Hello! We are Kat & Melinda from home. Done. Interest. where we deal with easy recipes and simple entertainment. We are so excited to be contributing to The Slow Roasted Italian and look forward to sharing some of our favorite recipes with you!

These creamy Swedish meatballs are comfort food at its best. You start with homemade meatballs made with a mix of minced meat, ground pork, breadcrumbs, onions and spices. It is the spices that make these meatballs so different. Nutmeg and allspice are used to give the meatballs a sweet and spicy flavor that distinguishes them from the classic Italian meatball. To cook the meatballs, fry them until they are perfectly golden and cooked. Then they enter that rich creamy sauce.

Oh that sauce! It is what dreams are made of. This creamy brown sauce is similar to gravy. Beef broth is added to a roux and beaten slowly until it becomes a smooth sauce. So add some Worcestershire to give some extra flavor and a heavy cream to turn it into a succulent, rich sauce that you will want to put on everything. Add the meatballs and cook them in the sauce for a few minutes and you are ready to serve. I suggest serving them on egg noodles or mashed potatoes. Yum!


  • I highly recommend using a mixture of pork and beef for meatballs, but if you prefer you can replace all beef.
  • The size of the meatball will affect the time it takes to cook it, so be sure to try one to make sure they are fully cooked.
  • Don't you have beef broth? You can replace chicken broth with sauce.


  • Large pan with lid – I would recommend at least one 12-inch pan for this recipe!
  • Whisk – Use a whisk to keep the sauce smooth and creamy.

To enjoy!

Preparation time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 35 minutes Total time: 45 minutes | Yield: 4


  • 8 ounces of ground pork
  • 8 ounces of minced meat
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup of breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 spoons of fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 spoons of butter
  • sauce
  • 3 spoons of butter
  • 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups of beef broth
  • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup of cream


  1. In a large bowl combine minced pork, ground beef, onion, eggs, salt, pepper, breadcrumbs, nutmeg, allspice and parsley. Mix the ingredients thoroughly, then roll them into 1 1/2 inch balls.
  2. Put the butter in a large pan and, working in batches, start frying the meatballs, cooking them on all sides until they are perfectly golden and cooked, for about 10 minutes.
  3. Once the meatballs are cooked, set them aside and start preparing the sauce. Add the butter to the pan and once melted add the flour by quickly beating and forming a roux. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until it starts to become a golden color.
  4. Slowly add beef broth, whipping all the time to prevent it from becoming lumpy. Once all the broth is added, cook for 5-7 minutes or until the sauce starts to thicken.
  5. Add the Worcestershire and the cream and continue to cook until the sauce has thickened enough to cover the back of a spoon.
  6. Add the meatballs to the sauce and cook them together for about 5 minutes.
  7. Serve on egg pasta or mashed potatoes.


If the pan has too many pieces burnt after you finish cooking the meatballs, you can wash it before starting the sauce.
