It may not be fair for me to rate this since I started with frozen meatballs, but I will anyway because I loved the end result so much (and so did my kids). I started the recipe by adding the 1/4 cup of oil to the skillet, let it get hot and then skipped to step six. Instead of adding water, I added two cups of beef broth (and I think I could have easily added more to thin out the gravy a bit) and omitted the salt. I followed the remainder of the steps as written adding the frozen meatballs at the end and heating through. It was DELICIOUS...a definite 5-star, keeper recipe!
This is the same recipe my grandmother used, and nobody knew where to find it (everything was stored in her head, lol). The only thing I changed was to cut the 2 tsp. of salt (in the meatballs) in half. Excellent recipe, thanks!!
This was good, everyone enjoyed it. The sauce is what I think makes the meatball dish become Swedish meatballs. It was a good sauce, but a bit too heavy for my personal taste. I might add more water next time and/or cut back on the sour cream.
We doubled the recipe and used only ground beef and the meatballs turned out great.
This is quite delicious! I use less minced onion, as we have an onion hater in the house. I also substitute beef broth for the water for a little extra flavor. My family loves it!
This was pretty good! The meatballs turned out really tasty! I browned them a little then put them in a 350 oven for 15-20 minutes while I made the sauce. I made the sauce as written to start with, but I thought it was a little bland, so I added a beef bullion cube and then it was fine. This made about 45 Tbsp sized meatballs. I ended up freezing half, since my husband and I only ate about 6 each, and we still have leftovers for lunch tomorrow! Yum.
Outstanding! I usually tweak a recipe, but this one is perfect as written. Served over broad noodles it was a real treat. Thanks much!
Kittencal does it again! Great recipe. i didn't refrigerate the meatballs and they were ok but misshapen. I used low fat hamburger and no pork, didn't leave enough oil in pan so had to add the water in sooner. Thickened up great! Even with the modification (low fat) it was fabulous! Thanks!
Nice, good! Served over buttered egg noodles, very nice.
Loved these meatballs didn,t put them in the fridge for 2 hours didn,t have the time but 1/2 hr in the freezer did the trick. really liked these alot and will definitely make them again. I cooked them in the oven ,perfect.
