IKEA Copycat Swedish Meatballs Recipe – 9 Smart Points

IKEA Copycat Swedish Meatballs

I don’t about you folks, but when I go to IKEA, I can’t wait to get down to their cafeteria and wrap my tastebuds around some of their famous Swedish meatballs! They are just soooooo good! Since I can’t realistically make a trip to IKEA every time I want their meatballs, I got to work making a healthier IKEA Copycat Swedish Meatballs Recipe. It’s actually a pretty easy recipe to make, and these meatballs turned out just as good, if not, BETTER than IKEA’s. Now, I just need to create a lighter version of their delicious Lingonberry sauce to go with it, and I’m set! At 9 Smart Points for 6 meatballs and sauce, this delicious dish makes a perfect Weight Watchers substitute for the original version. If you love IKEA’s Swedish Meatballs as much as I do, this copycat version is a must try!

Instructions
  1. Heat half of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in onions, and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Wipe skillet and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the pork, beef, cooked onion, Panko, egg, nutmeg, allspice and salt and pepper. Roll the mixture into 24 1” meatballs.
  3. Heat remaining olive oil in skillet. Add meatballs into pan, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned. About 5 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  4. Now melt butter in skillet, and then whisk the flour into the melted butter. Cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Slowly pour in the beef broth while continuing to whisk, until gravy is mildly thickened, about 3 minutes. You may need a bit more or less broth to achieve the desired texture of gravy.
  5. Whisk in the sour cream, and season with salt and pepper as desired.
  6. Add in the meatballs, and stir around gently. Cook, remembering to stir occasionally, for about 10-12 minutes, or until meatballs are cooked through.
