IKEA Meatballs

When looking to furnish a room in our first house we visited IKEA for the first time on a trip to California.  It was love at first sight.  To a young couple looking to buy cheap furniture it was the happiest place on earth. Then, we entered the food court...we couldn't believe just kept getting better.  After a long day of shopping we sat down to enjoy some Swedish meatballs and potatoes. Now, it's the only thing we order when we go.

Dear IKEA,

Please come to Nevada.

A few years later, I found a recipe titled IKEA Meatballs from a cookbook the ladies in my ward put together.  I immediatly tried it.'s a favorite!

IKEA Meatballs


2 cups cream
1 cup beef broth
1 Tbsp soy sauce
2 Tbsp white flour
2 Tbsp water, cold
salt and pepper (to season)
1 bag frozen meatballs (not Italian style)

In a large skillet bring beef broth to a low boil.  Add the cream.

In a small bowl mix the flour and water to a creamy consistency.

Add to the skillet and stir. (make sure the cream and broth are boiling)

Add salt, pepper and soy sauce.

Allow to simmer to allow sauce to thicken.

Add meatballs and simmer until they are heated through.

Serve with mashed potatoes.
