Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs
This recipe for crock pot swedish meatballs was a great hit with the family. We have a lad who's a very faddy eater and it's difficult to find meals he likes. We put these meatballs on a bed of spaghetti for him and by the time we'd dished ours up, his plate was clean.
When we finished our slow cooker meatballs, my wife said "That was sublime, well done". Now she wants a print out for her friends. Of all the crockpot meatball recipes I've made, this is the best. Try it yourself and see.
Ingredients for Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs: With New Potatoes and Spinach
1/2 pound (250 gm) beef mince (ground beef)
1/2 pound (250 gm) pork mince (ground pork)
1/4 pound (100gm) breadcrumbs. Dried breadcrumbs absorb milk more easily
1/3 pint (200 ml) milk
One onion finely chopped (the finer the easier to mix in)
Sprinkling of salt
1/3 teaspoon allspice
1/3 teaspoon groung nutmeg
Crock Pot Swedish Meatballs: Sauce
1 1/2 pints beef stock (cube or fresh)
Tablespoon of Worcester Sauce
Tablespoon of Ketchup
Two cloves of garlic (grated)
Spoonful of mustard
Get a large mixing bowl and add the milk to the breadcrumbs. Allow a little time for it to be absorbed. Now is a good time to add the salt, allspice and nutmeg because it's easier to distribute it evenly.
Add the beef mince, pork mince and the chopped onion and mix everything together. Fingers are best because the mix becomes stiff.
Sprinkle some flour on a baking tray, put some on your fingers and make one inch meatballs.
If you like, these can be browned in the oven. It isn't necessary.
Put the meatballs in the slow cooker, add the sauce ingredients and cook for eight hours on low or for four hours on high.
