    Dee_73's Note:

    I know there is already an "ikea swedish meatballs" recipe on here, but this one is right from the source :) This calls for "unsweetened rusk flour" which is obviously not available in the US. It literally translates to "toasted breadcrumbs" So I just use PLAIN breadcrumbs, I can't taste a difference in the meatballs. You could also toast up some panko in butter in a pan and out them in a baggie of some sort and crush them till their fine...but either way... I'm not sure of the "yield" here it depends how many meatballs you gove people to eat and how big the meatballs are made ;)

      This was fantastic! i love ikea meatballs and buy them frozen to make at home, but when i'm out, this is a great fix! I would make the following changes: 1 - I don't think i'll add the water to the meatballs next time. They did fall apart easily and needed to be a bit more dense. 2- the gravy is spot-on! Mine was a little thin so i might add a bit more flour, but the flavor is perfect! 3 - I might try baking the meatballs next time instead of frying in butter... tastey but that's alot of butter! :) Plus baking is just easy and i'm lazy!

      These were really nice. I used all beef, omitted the water from the meatballs, added a pinch of ginger & nutmeg to the sauce. Served with egg noodles. I also made the sauce first & simmered the raw meatballs for a few hours in the sauce (which is how I like to make meatballs best). The meatballs were flavorful, tender & really melded well with the sauce after simmering for a few hours. Thanks for sharing.

      I only made the sauce portion from this recipe. I live 5 minutes from IKEA, so I had the meatballs, but ran out of sauce packets. I will probably never need to buy those sauce packets again! This recipe was spot on, if not a touch better! Thank you so much!
