Swedish meatballs in sauce Swedish meatballs in sauce
Number of Servings: 4


    1 tsp olive oil
    1 small onion, minced
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 celery stalk, minced
    1/4 cup parsley, minced
    1 lb lean (93%) ground beef
    1 egg
    1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 tsp allspice
    2 cups reduced sodium beef stock or broth
    2 oz light cream cheese
    1/2 cup non fat sour cream


In a large saute pan, heat oil on medium heat, add onions and garlic. Saute until onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add celery and parsley and cook until soft, about 3-4 minutes. Let cool.

In a large bowl, combine beef, egg, onion mixture, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and allspice. Mix well and form meatballs with your hands. They should be 1/8 cup size.

Add beef broth to the pan and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and slowly lower meatballs into the broth. Cover and cook about 20 minutes. Remove the meatballs with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add cream cheese and sour cream to the broth and use a stick blender to blend until incorporated. Return the pan to low heat and simmer a few minutes to thicken. If you want the gravy a little thicker, use some cornstarch and water.

Return meatballs to sauce and serve over egg noodles.

Serving Size: Makes about 5 servings (one serving is about 5 meatballs and sauce)
