  1. Omg the music is so annoying and why would they put the instructions over the steps – white on white font. Too many things to look at. Whoever makes these videos is CRAP. Hire someone new!

  2. my Swedish aunt used to do this from scratch but now she buys her sauce mix from IKEA and she gave me one and I did the sauce over store bought meat balls and it was good

  3. I worked in a Swedish restuarant when I was a teen. Way back then we cut off big chunks of cow from the walk in fridge and grinded it up! I have fond memories of Swedish meatballs.

  4. 40 minutes!!!??? Yikes!! Most swedes that I know brown their meatballs in butter or margarine on medium high heat, then turn down the heat to a medium low, cover the pan with a lid and let cook for another 10-15 minutes stirring it occationaly, alternatively let them sit in a heated oven (Lid on) for 10-15 minutes. 40 minutes is way over the top for meatballs!

    Another method is to brown the meatballs, take them out of the pan, deglaze the pan with some butter, add some plain flour to make a brown roux, add beef stock (Not chicken stock), and double cream to make a sauce (A small dollop of lingonberry jelly or black currant jelly is also nice to add into the sauce), then braisse the meatballs in the sauce for about ten minutes.

    Nice and instructive video though, and a big plus to you for not using olive oil when cooking swedish meatballs! Keep the videos coming!:)
