This is one of my adopted Zaar recipes. I suggest using Basic Meatballs recipe #8060 for the meatballs listed in this recipe as it is almost identical to the recipe that I use. I would also suggest serving this over noodles with a salad and crusty rolls for an easy no-fuss meal that will come together quickly.
I've been using this recipe from "Meals with a Foreign Flair" cookbook for many years. I'm not much for cream sauces and this one stands on its own without the rich cream. The instant coffee really picks this up. Generally, I buy the frozen Swedish meatballs and pour this sauce over the finished product. Sure beats the hassle of preparing the meatballs from scratch.
In England, swedish meatballs are very available and cheap. They are very good with the following cream sauce and boiled potatoes. My son, who has to be one of the faddiest people on the planet, found this delicious. This is from the cookbook 'Ikea's Real Swedish Food Book'.
These meat balls go well with the Easy Low-Fat Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce. I cook these in the microwave in a steamer. This way the fat drains off. I usually rinse these a little also. This recipe came out of a want to have spaghetti and meatballs without all of the fat. These balls freeze great.
I don't remember where I found this recipe - I've made it so often, I've memorized it. The trick to these meatballs is to only plan to use half of them - that's all I ever have left by the time I'm ready to put them in something else. It's the only time I've ever had ground beef melt in my mouth.
Not sure exactly where I found this but I do know it was a personal blog online. I modified the original recipe just a little and think these are the BEST! They let just enough of the buttermilk flavor through and are super moist without falling apart. I use these for tomato sauce, sweet and sour, and Swedish meatballs.
