This is for Ross, our son-in-law. He said his Grandma used to make Swedish meatballs, I had a flashback!!! I used to make these little yummy balls for my family when I was in high school and continued making them after I was working in the 1970's. They are quick and yummy! I am not sure where my recipe came from, as I was in Home Economics in high school, and think possibly it came from class handouts?? I remembered a lot of the ingredients and tweeked it, to bring it into this decade!!
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 C. minute rice
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 T. minced onion
- 1 T. chopped parsley
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 T Worcestershire sauce
- Dash of pepper
- 1/2 C. milk
2. Place olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the meatballs for about 10 minutes.
3. Remove them and most of the fat. Stir the flour and the butter into the pan. Cook the flour for a minute...this prevents lumps.
4. Slowly while stirring add the broth. Simmer until it thickens, about 2 minutes.
5. Strain it with a sieve to remove any clumps. Return it to the pan.
6. Reduce heat to low; stir in the sour cream.
7. Return the meatballs to the pan for 1 minute.
