IKEA’s Famous Meatball Recipe Isn’t a Secret Anymore
By Cooking Panda
We all love a good secret recipe. There’s something about the unknown tastiness that makes our favorite foods special. We try our best to recreate these recipes at home, but we almost always miss the mark. IKEA knows we can’t go out and get their delicious, famous meatballs, so they are doing the unthinkable: releasing the secret recipe so we can make them at home – hooray!
The recipe itself is so IKEA, reading like one of their (in)famous instruction manuals. Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll need to whip these up at home. For the meatballs themselves, you’ll need 500 grams of beef mince (which is about a pound or so), 250 grams or pork mince (about half a pound), one onion chopped up finely, one clove of garlic minced, 100 grams of bread crumbs, 5 tablespoons of whole milk, one egg, and a little salt and pepper. Mix it all together and roll them into round meatballs. You’ll first want to fry these in a pan with some oil, and then finish baking them at 350 fahrenheit for 30 minutes.
For the yummy Cream Sauce, you’ll need some oil, 40 grams of butter, 40 grams of plain flour, 150 ml each of vegetable stock and beef stock, and 150 ml of thick double cream, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and one teaspoon of Dijon Mustard. Mix it all together in a saucepan, bring it to a boil, and allow the sauce to thicken. Go ahead, add all of that to your next grocery list!
