The “Sorted” team get to work on a Swedish Meatballs Recipe.
The traditional Swedish recipe calls for a Lingonberry sauce but as this is not readily available outside of Sweden they substitute it with Cranberry Sauce. You could use any variety of sweet berry or currant sauce.
A tip for removing the excess oil from the pan is to use kitchen paper with tongs, this will alleviate the need to start moving a blazing hot pan around the kitchen.
When it comes to rolling the meatballs use a sorbet scoop to get even quantities out and either wet your hands with water or a little oil when it comes to rolling them.
Keep equal quantities of beef and pork as you adjust the serving size up, same for the beef stock and cream.
The Cranberry Sauce can either come straight out of a jar, or you can make your own.
