Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs
This flavour packed slow cooker Swedish meatballs is the perfect dinner dish. They’re great on their own but best matched with some mashed potato and lingonberry jam.

The pork and beef meatballs are spiced with a bit of allspice and ground nutmeg. These are cooked in delicious beef stock in which cream is added at the end. The end result is a creamy flavour packed sauce with deliciously tender meatballs.

To complete this dish, you should have it with some lingonberry jelly on the side. If you can’t get your hands on any then cranberry sauce works just as well. If you can’t get either then it’s fine just on its own.

One cool thing you can do if you have multiple slow cookers is have the meatballs cooking in one and some creamy mashed potatoes in the other. This will mean by the end of cooking you will have an entire meal ready for eating. Just keep in mind that even if you have the best slow cookers the time/heat settings may vary if the brands are different.

Leftovers are always great so make sure you don’t be throwing any out. The meatball and cream sauce will reheat quite nicely so it’s perfect for lunch the next day. It should last 3-5 days if stored correctly in the fridge. I’m unable to say how these will reheat if they have been frozen.

If you don’t have the time then you can easily skip making the meatballs from scratch. Instead just use some frozen meatballs, you’re able to find frozen Swedish meatballs for sale at almost any good supermarket.

Cooking Tips:

You’re able to skip the browning of the slow cooker swedish meatballs if you’re running low on time. You will find the beef stock will end up with a lot more fat in it but you should be able skim this off.
If you only have one type of ground meat then you can simply use that. For the best results I recommend that you use the combination of pork and beef.
You can make the meatballs in bulk then freeze them down for later. This is great if you find yourself making this dish quite often.
The cornstarch mix is extremely important if you don’t want your sauce to be super runny.

I use a 5.5L/6 Quart slow cooker for all the recipes that I have on this website unless specified. If you have a smaller or larger slow cooker then you might need to adjust the ingredients.
