Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs Recipe
Recipe type: Beef
Cuisine: Swedish
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 onion, grated
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 4 cups beef stock
  1. In a large bowl, mix the ground beef, bread crumbs, grated onion, eggs, salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Shape the meat mixture into meatballs and put on a frying pan (so the meatballs are not touching each other).
  4. Brown the meatballs on one side for 3 minutes, then carefully flip them with the spatula and cook on another side for another 3 minutes.
  5. Remove the Swedish meatballs from the frying pan and put them in a crockpot.
  6. Now you need to make the gravy. Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the flour to the butter and mix constantly for 1 minute. Add the beef stock and mix constantly for 1 minute.
  7. Pour the gravy from the pan into a crockpot over the meatballs. Set the crockpot to cook the Swedish meatballs on Low for 6-8 hours.
