  • 250 g pork (finely chopped) pork
  • 1 or
  • 200 ml liquid cream and a little water
  • 2 tablespoons half an onion grated
  • 50 ml flour
  • 2 boiled and cooled potatoes
  • 4, 5 tablespoons butter
  • salt and pepper
  • Ingredient sos:
  • 100 ml sour cream
  • 200 ml beef soup or water
  • soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • salt and white pepper

Servings: 4

Preparation time: less than 60 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION IKEA Meatballs with Cream Sauce:

Cook the onion in a pan with 1 tablespoon of butter. When it starts to change color a little, put it in a large bowl. Crush the potatoes, add a little water and stir until a homogeneous composition is formed. Put the potatoes over the onion and add the meat, sour cream, butter and mix all the ingredients. Salt and pepper to taste.

Heat 300 g of butter in a large pan and with the help of 2 tablespoons take from the composition and form meatballs, which you place on a floured surface until they are fried in the pan. Turn on both sides to fry evenly, when they are ready, place them in a strainer to drain the excess butter. The secret is not to make them too big. Put water or beef soup to boil and add sour cream and flour, soy sauce (do not overdo it with soy sauce, add it a little, to taste) season with salt and white pepper, and it's ready.

As a side dish, use new potatoes boiled in their skins and then cleaned, and specifically Swedish sweet lingonberry jam (this is an alternative, I will post and the jam you can find in our stores. This combination of sweet and salty is perfect, I hope you can convince yourself! Good appetite!

The Real IKEA Swedish Meatballs Recipe

  • Author: A Family Feast (adapted from IKEA)
  • Prep Time: 45 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Category: entree
  • Method: baked
  • Cuisine: Swedish


1 ½ pounds ground beef 85/15

1 tablespoon fresh garlic, finely minced

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

4 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

For Serving


In a large bowl, mix ground beef, ground pork, onion, garlic, bread crumbs, eggs, milk, salt, pepper and one tablespoon of oil. Mix just enough to combine and try not to overmix.

Use a one-once scoop and scoop out 55 one-ounce meatballs. Line them up on your cutting board and run a knife through each one which will yield 110 half-ounce pieces.

Roll each into a ball and line up on a sheet tray covered in parchment. Keep your hands wet while rolling.

Refrigerate on the sheet tray for one hour to set.

After one hour, preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line a second sheet tray with parchment paper.

Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat with one tablespoon of olive oil and once hot, gently place one third of the meatballs in the pan and cook on all sides for about 4-5 minutes. Use a small spatula or tongs to continuously turn the meatballs to brown evenly. Remove these browned meatballs to the prepared sheet pan.

Repeat for the next two batches of oil and meatballs.

Once all the meatballs have browned and are now lined up on the sheet tray, place the sheet tray in the oven and cook for 15 minutes.

While the meatballs are cooking, heat the vegetable stock, beef stock, heavy cream, soy sauce and mustard in a small sauce pan. Mixture needs to be hot to prevent lumping in the sauce but does not need to boil. Set aside.

In a 4-5-quart pot, over medium heat melt butter in oil and add flour to make a roux. Cook and stir continuously for 3-4 minutes until the raw flour smell is gone.

Gradually add the liquid to the roux while whisking. Heat this mixture to hot and bubbly.

When the meatballs come out of the oven, add to the sauce and serve with mashed potatoes, green beans, and lingonberry jam.

This is all well and fine, but could they post a good recipe for yeast-free bread, too?

On Monday, IKEA UK and Ireland shared a recipe for recreating the chain’s Swedish meatballs at home, as IKEA and its cafes in the U.K. are currently shuttered amid the ongoing coronavirus health crisis.

IKEA's recipe is the latest in a trend of theme parks, hotels and celebrity chefs sharing the secrets to their signature dishes for folks stuck at home during the lockdown, including Disney's Dole Whip, DoubleTree Hotels' chocolate chip cookies, and Ina Garten's colossal morning cocktail .

“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” said Lorena Lourido, the country food manager at IKEA UK and Ireland. “Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable.

“Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”

Along with the recipe, IKEA released an illustrated recipe card, printed in the style of its assembly directions, to assist in the kitchen. (Not a meat-eater? Don't worry. IKEA has previously revealed the recipe for its vegetarian "meatballs" too.)

"Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone's lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable." Said Lorena Lourido, the country food manager at IKEA UK and Ireland. (IKEA U.K. and Ireland)

Now if only IKEA would reveal its secret for those IKEA cinnamon buns, we just might have a whole meal on our hands!

Ikea style meatballs in a creamy sauce

I like to think I am pretty honest with you. Not in a take a photo of my stretchmarks and post it to Instagram kind of a way. I & # 8217d have to be paid a lot to do that. (I do have a price for this kind of thing & # 8230 don & # 8217t we all? Oh, okay, just me). Anyway, I digress. I am honest with you in that I don & # 8217t pretend making macarons is easy. I don & # 8217t try and profess that making homemade soup brings you closer to God (whichever one you worship & # 8230 even the God that is blue cheese). I & # 8217m also not going to pretend these meatballs are speedy.

They & # 8217re the closest I can get to Ikea meatballs without hotfooting it to the nearest blue and yellow motorway church (what is it with all the religion references today? Sorry & # 8230) or popping into my local Iceland. (What didn & # 8217t know Iceland sell Ikea meatballs? The actual real deal! Yep & # 8211 they do and they & # 8217re 25p cheaper in Iceland. Go figure). BUT (and there & # 8217s always a but when good stuff is involved) making meatballs that are as good as (if not better) than Ikea & # 8217s takes time.

I can & # 8217t just tell you to pop everything into a food processor, whizz it up and off you go. Sorry. I know that & # 8217s what everyone wants, but (another but .. pah!) Life just isn't like that. If you want Ikea meatballs you & # 8217re going to have to work for it. I even made the creamy sauce that they serve with the little pockets of meaty heaven. It & # 8217s incredibly, disgustingly calorific but hey, who cares, this is about obtaining meatball perfection, not worrying about hips and thighs. I & # 8217m not Rosemary Conley and neither are you.

Lots of great recipes like this in my books, Recipes from a Normal Mum, (available on Amazon, at The Works, Waterstones, WHSmith, The Book Depository and many smaller outlets) and The Power of Frozen (available exclusively in Iceland stores and through their website) which is just £ 2.99 at the mo! And no, the recipes are not just about frozen food. Every recipe has instructions of how to make with chilled ingredients too.

Ikea style meatballs in a creamy sauce

  • 1 onion, peeled and very finely chopped (about 85g)
  • 25g salted butter
  • 70g peeled, cooked potato
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 tsp ground white pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 290mls milk
  • 85g breadcrumbs
  • 75g plain flour
  • 250g thin beef
  • 250g mince pork
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp fresh dill, very finely chopped (or 2 tsp dried dill, though this is only as a last resort)
  • 25g salted butter
  • 20g plain flour
  • 600mls hot beef stock (homemade or you can use a stock cube)
  • 300mls double cream
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped

Fry the onion in a frying pan with the butter over a low heat for about 10 minutes until soft, stirring occasionally. Grate the potato (you can also use 70g frozen mashed potato defrosted if you prefer) and add to the pan along with the salt, allspice (this is NOT the same as mixed spice & # 8211 it & # 8217s a ground up berry, not a mixture of nutmeg, cloves etc), white pepper (again, please don & # 8217t substitute black pepper if you & # 8217re looking for authentic Ikea meatball flavor) and garlic. Fry for a further 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then add the milk and turn the heat up to medium.

Stir the onion mixture as it & # 8217s bubbling away and remove from the heat when it & # 8217s thickened to the consistency of a thick gravy. This takes about 10 & # 8211 15 minutes. Add the breadcrumbs, stir until they absorb the liquid and the mixture looks like a nasty sludge. Remove from the heat.

Grab a bowl and fill it with cold water. Next to it pour the flour onto a plate. Next to that arrange some non stick baking parchment over a large roasting tin. Preheat the oven to 200C / fan 180C / gas mark 6. Now we are ready to begin the meatball making process. Mix together the beef, pork, egg and dill in a large bowl using your hands. Ensure the dill is really well distributed. Add the onion-bread sludge mixture (don & # 8217t wash the frying pan & # 8211 we need it for the sauce!) And again use your hands to mix together. Now dip your hands in the cold water, take a bit of the very wet mixture, slightly smaller than a golf ball and roll into a ball in your palms. Gently roll in the flour and place in the roasting tin. Repeat (especially the water stage) until all the mixture is used up, then bake in the oven for 30 minutes, turning carefully once. I made 30 meatballs. Please don't be tempted to make the meatballs smaller as they shrink in the oven.

Now make the sauce. You need the grubby looking frying pan that has the bread mixture in it. Don & # 8217t wash it & # 8211t it has lots of flavor that we need. Add to it the butter (from the sauce ingredients) and fry on a low heat until the butter is bubbling. Next add the flour and use a whisk to mix together. Whisk over a low heat for about 2 minutes. Add 200mls of the beef stock and whisk the sauce rigorously until smooth. Then add more beef stock and whisk again. Continue until all the stock is in the frying pan and turn the heat to medium. Leave the sauce to bubble and reduce for about 10 & # 8211 15 minutes until it has a thick gravy consistency. Add the double cream and Worcestershire sauce, whisk well and leave the sauce to reduce back to the thick gravy consistency again. (Takes about 3 & # 8211 5 minutes).

Serve the meatballs with mashed potato or rice, lashings of the creamy sauce and a little parsley over the top. If you find the sauce is ready before your meatballs, turn the hob off and reheat the sauce 10 minutes later & # 8211 it & # 8217ll need a good whisk.

Ikea shares recipe for iconic Swedish meatballs and cream sauce

Make this at-home alternative using easily accessible ingredients.

Ikea has shared the recipe for its iconic Swedish meatballs and meatball sauce, encouraging customers to recreate the popular dish in the comfort of their home during the coronavirus lockdown.

If Ikea is your go-to store for home furniture and accessories, then it's likely that during one of your many shopping trips (where you've come out with plant pots, a new bedside table, two rugs, three cushions and basically everything else that wasn't actually on your list), you've probably popped by the in-store restaurant and tucked into a plate of meatballs, or maybe bought a frozen pack at its in-store Swedish food market to take home.

Meatballs with mashed potatoes, cream sauce and lingonberry jam is Sweden & rsquos No.1 dish, and Ikea's meatballs have long garnered a reputation among its most loyal customers, so with everyone staying indoors due to lockdown, Ikea is enabling customers to recreate the famed dish at home, providing they have all the ingredients to hand.

'We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we & rsquove released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,' says Lorena Lourido, Country Food Manager at Ikea .

‘Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone & rsquos lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon app & eacutetit or, smaklig m & aringltid, as we say in Sweden! '

Swedish Meatballs with Cream Sauce (Ikea Recipe)

Ikea has made known their Swedish dishes around the world, especially the Swedish meatballs attract countless fans. Every now and then, my hubby and I would drop in their restaurant to taste their signature dish. To me, the lingonberry jelly is a must-have add-on. If without it, I & # 8217d feel it won't be Swedish at all.

You can tell how I & # 8217m addicted to Ikea meatballs, when spotting the picture of Ikea cookbook below. Yes, I did buy their cookbook just for wanting to make the dish at home. The original recipe in the cookbook, uses Swedish measurement, that is dl instead of ml. Although I tweaked slightly by replacing breadcrumbs with the unsweetened rusk flour simply because I couldn't find any here from supermarkets, my family was very satisfied with the end result.

Do you like Swedish meatballs? Or do you whip up your own meatball recipe? If so, feel free to drop a line to share with us.

Swedish Meatballs with Cream Sauce (recipe from Ikea's Real Swedish Food Book) (Printable recipe)

  • 250gm minced beef
  • 250gm minced pork
  • 1 egg
  • 200-300 ml cream and water (or milk and water) (I used half milk and half water)
  • 2 & # 189 Tbsp onion, finely chopped
  • 50 ml unsweetened rusk flour (I used & # 189 cup of breadcrumbs.)
  • 2 cold boiled potatoes
  • 4-5 Tbsp butter, margarine or oil
  • salt, white pepper (allspice)
  1. Heat the onion till golden in a couple of tablespoons of lightly browned butter.
  2. Mash the potatoes and moisten the rusk flour in a little water.
  3. Mix all the ingredients into a smooth mixture of the right consistency and flavor generously with salt, white pepper and (optional) a little fine-crushed allspice.
  4. Use a pair of spoons rinsed in water, shape the mixture into relatively large, round balls and transfer to a floured chopping board, then fry them slowly in plenty of butter.

  • 100 ml cream
  • 200 ml water or beef stock
  • Chinese soya sauce (I used 1 teaspoon of light soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of dark soy sauce.)
  • 1 Tbsp white flour
  • salt, white pepper
  1. Swirl the water or beef stock in a pan. (Cook over medium heat.)
  2. Add cream and thicken with white flour if preferred. Season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Serve the meatballs with the sauce, freshly boiled potatoes (I used extra potatoes to make mashed potato), uncooked lingonberry jam and salad.
  • As a few readers asked me whether the potatoes are for making meatballs or for making mashed potatoes. Sorry for a bit of confusion. The "2 cold boiled potatoes" in the section of "ingredients" are for making meatballs. Considering the mashed potato served on side shown in the above pictures are extra.

Ikea publishes a meatball recipe - including gravy - to tide customers over

Ikea, having shuttered its stores in response to the pandemic coronavirus, knows what its customers are missing almost more than the furniture: its iconic Swedish meatballs.

The retailer on Monday published a recipe.

This being Ikea, the goods must be assembled. But, just as with its furniture, Ikea has provided a detailed set of instructions, complete with cartoony, easy-to-read depictions of cooks and meatballs at every step of the process, to illustrate exactly how meatballs are made.

Though from the looks of it these meatballs are as delicious as those one can buy in the stores ’restaurants and frozen food sections, a spokesperson for Ikea U.S. noted that this is not the actual recipe for those meatballs.

"This is a meatball recipe, not the IKEA meatball recipe," the spokesperson told the Daily News via email.

Either way, the recipe released by the furniture maker’s U.K./Ireland branch is extensive and includes cream sauce. Its purpose, a spokeswoman said, is to help make up for some of what people may be missing at home.

"We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we've released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen," Ikea's country food manager Lorena Lourido said in a statement, according to CNN.

“Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable. Bon appétit, or smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden! ”

Ikea Just Shared Its Famous Meatball and Creamy Sauce Recipe, So Get Cookin '

What would a trip to Ikea be without its famous meatballs and mashed potatoes smothered in the instantly recognizable creamy sauce? A half-hearted one, to be honest. Sadly (although importantly), as all stores across the country closed last month due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it means none of us will be taking a trip any time soon to buy more flat-pack furniture and kitchen utensils. But, thanks to our friends at Ikea, we won’t have to go without the iconic meatballs any longer.

The home accessories and furniture store released its six-step recipe for both the meatballs and the sauce here, and it looks both easy and delicious.

Never tried the iconic meal before? "The dish is an unexpected meeting of flavors as the lingonberry sweetness contrasts, yet harmonizes, with the meatballs, while the cream sauce serves as a neutral 'mediator' between the two," is how Ikea passionately explains it. But we'll leave you to be the judge of that.

My favorite part? Their serving size. Don't expect to just get three or four meatballs per plate in Ikea world, 30-40 meatballs is just the right amount for a family of four. So, what are you waiting for? Get cooking, and make Ikea proud.

To make these meatballs super moist, I added a secret ingredient & # 8211 fresh bread processed into crumbs. Combine everything together and roll out balls. Trust me, this recipe is spot on. And needless to say, so delicious.

Now, the next step & # 8211 cooking these Swedish meatballs. Pan fry the meatballs in a little oil until it’s sealed and browned on all sides. Then transfer it to the oven and cook for another 30 minutes.

Swedish cream sauce

The piping hot meatballs taste amazing straight out of the oven. Perfect with the cream sauce, mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam.
