Ikea Swedish Meatball Recipe
It was right after I graduated from university. I was feeling pretty confused about life and where I was heading. I was living in my pajamas and not really eating or getting out of the house much. One day my brother asked me to tag along on an Ikea run. He and my sister-in-law were in the middle of moving houses and he needed to pick up some random organizational stuff.
- 1/2 pound ground beef;
- 1/2 pound ground pork;
- 1 egg;
- 2.5 tablespoons finely chopped onion;
- 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I used panko);
- 2 small potatoes;
- 3 tablespoons butter;
- salt and white pepper;
- 1/4 teaspoon all spice.
Peel and cut the potatoes into chunks. Place in a small pot, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook the potatoes until fork tender and drain well. You can mash the potatoes at this point, or if you have a potato ricer, use the potato ricer for fluffy potato grains. Set aside until completely cool.
