Swedish Meatballs {Crock-pot Recipe}

The Best Swedish Meatballs that I have had are slowly cooked in a Crock-Pot and smothered in the most amazingly delicious rich and creamy gravy you can make.  These Swedish meatballs are so flavorful is almost too good to be true.  Nothing beats homemade meatballs smothered in a creamy gravy sauce, and yes, and yes, they rank right up with Ikea’s version, in my opinion, .in my opinion.

I enjoy making my meatballs instead of using frozen meatballs because Swedish Meatballs require using a different approach to seasoning. Usually, frozen meatballs are more geared to using in a tomato-based sauce and don’t have that spark they need to stand out in the recipe.

Beef broth, all-purpose flour, sour cream, and Worcestershire sauce are what we are going to combine to make this flavorful masterpiece.

Well, now it’s my turn to ask, are Y’all ready for the cold hard truth? Can you handle it?

My answer is, “it won’t be my recipe in any way shape or form, and I will be the last one you need to come to complaining that YOUR recipe didn’t turn out.” You are going to have to take responsibility for that one, lol!

 

 

 

Crockpot Swedish MeatballsI love Y’all, but if I sincerely read one more time, “I followed your recipe to a “T,” but didn’t use XYZ ingredient and then added XYZ ingredient to the recipe instead and it was awful, WHY?” You all know why it didn’t turn out; you ruined the integrity of my method and want someone to blame for your mistake. No, Ma’me, No Sir, not this time, you have been advised beforehand there will be no sympathy.

    I made these for the kids and husband and they turned out great. I thought they were better than many of the others I tried. I loved the homemade meatballs to. I will keep this recipe forever.

    Quick question, last time I made these they were so good that this time I made a larger batch, can I freeze them?

      Kirtus, yes you can feel free to freeze them. They should keep for a few months or so. Enjoy!
