Swedish Meatballs

Swedish Meatballs

Who doesn’t like meatballs? I’m talking Swedish ones in this particular instance which are, by the way, probably the best comfort food ever invented… especially if served over some mashed potatoes.
My children turn into angels if they know meatballs are being served for dinner, mostly because I used to complain about how labor intensive the meal was to prepare. There is still some work involved in forming each itty-bitty meatball but my rice cooker finishes the job and the result is oh so worth every moment. Plus, now that my kiddos are older they all love being mommy’s meatball shaper. Put ’em to work and enjoy this comfort classic in no time!

Ingredients
1 lb ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 egg
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
2 cups heavy cream
2 tbsp honey mustard
2 tsp concentrated beef bouillon
salt and pepper

Directions
Mix the ground beef, salt, pepper, onions, egg and breadcrumbs together until well combined. Form into 1.5″ meatballs and set aside.

Set your rice cooker to Steam or Sauté-Then-Simmer and brown the meatballs in batches until nearly cooked. Set aside.

Add cream, mustard and beef bouillon to the rice cooker and whisk to combine. Add meatballs and let cook another 15 minutes. Serve with mashed potatoes or rice and enjoy!
