Swedish Meatballs


Slightly adapted from a recipe at Epicurious.com

1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs, soaked in 1/2 cup milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 small onion, grated
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 tablespoons flour (any kind)
1 cup beef broth
1/2 cup sour cream
Lingonberry or cranberry sauce (optional)

1. Combine the first 8 ingredients. Form the mixture into 1-inch balls.

2. Place 3/4 of the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs for about 10 minutes, turning once or twice..

3. Remove them to a plate and drain most of the fat. Cover the meatballs to keep warm.  Stir the flour and the remaining butter into the pan.

4. Add the broth. Simmer until it thickens, about 2 minutes.

5. Reduce heat to low; stir in the sour cream.

6. Return the meatballs to the pan for a few minutes until everything is warm. Serve with the berry sauce if you like.
