How To Make Swedish Meatballs

Start by adding the ground beef and ground pork, almond flour, grated onion, allspice, nutmeg, salt and pepper, egg, and heavy cream into a large mixing bowl. Mix everything thoroughly using your hands. Form the meat mixture into 28 equal-sized meatballs.

Heat a skillet over medium/high heat, and melt the butter. Cook the meatballs for about 8-10 minutes, turning every few minutes. Make sure to brown the meatballs on all sides.

You may have to cook the meatballs in multiple batches depending on the size of your skillet. Don’t overcrowd the skillet or the meatballs may not brown evenly. Transfer the meatballs to a plate and cover with foil while you prepare the sauce.

In the same pan, you cooked the meatballs in, melt the other tablespoon of butter. When the pan is hot, pour in the beef stock. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the pan, all the little pieces leftover from the meatballs are where the yummy flavor is!

Stir in the cream, sour cream, liquid aminos, dijon mustard, and season with salt and pepper. Once the liquid has come to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer. Ladle out about ¼ cup of the sauce into a small bowl. Whisk in the xanthan gum and whisk until there are no lumps.

Pour the xanthan gum mixture back into the skillet with the rest of the sauce and stir to combine. Place meatballs in the cream sauce and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until the sauce has thickened and meatballs are cooked through.

Top with chopped parsley before serving. Enjoy!
