Svenska köttbullar or Swedish meatballs are made with ground beef and pork, butter, cream, bread crumbs, and other ingredients. I know they have good, real meat in Sweden. Should I ask The Swedish Chef if they make it with moose meat, reindeer, elk, venison, bison, veal or any other furry-haired animal bigger than five foot three? I guess not today or discussion will go to squirrels and rabbits which I couldn’t imagine being served on my plate.

1kg meat mince (500g pork 500 g beef)

Shape into your preferred serving size round balls and fry them in plenty of butter over medium heat.In 2 batches if necessary, cook the meatballs, turning frequently, for 10 minutes or until lightly browned all over and almost cooked through. Remove meatballs and serve warm with lignonberry jam, potatoes or cream sauce.
