Easy Swedish Meatballs

  • 26oz bag of Mama Lucia Homestyle Mini Meatballs
  • 2 Tbsp butter or vegetable oil or mix of both
  • 2 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1⁄4 cup heavy cream
  • 1⁄4 tsp onion powder
  • 1⁄4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp dried parsley
  • 1⁄4 tsp salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp pepper

Heat butter or oil in a large electric skillet or sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the meatballs without crowding, and gently brown on all sides. Place them on a heated baking pan in a low oven to keep warm.

To make gravy, deglaze the skillet with 1 cup of the stock, letting it simmer for 5 minutes while scraping the bottom of the skillet with a spatula. Add the remaining 1 cup of stock. In a small bowl, mix the flour with 1/4 cup of cold water until smooth. Whisk flour mixture into warm gravy, and let simmer, whisking constantly to prevent lumps, until thickened slightly, about 3-5 minutes. Add the cream and season with salt and pepper.

To serve, place meatballs in a serving dish, pour hot gravy over them, and garnish with parsley. Serve with potatoes, buttered noodles or cooked rice, and sprinkle with parsley.
