Traditional Swedish Meatball Sauce
I've been looking for a traditional, authentic Swedish meatball sauce recipe. Most I found were easy, short-cut versions of stroganoff using sour cream.
A true Swedish sauce is mostly cream and butter. I compiled ingredients of a few different recipes and came up with my own. It turned out fantastic and just what I wanted. Perfection, in my world! I hope you enjoy!

How to Make Traditional Swedish Meatball Sauce
- In a sauce pan on medium heat, melt butter and add flour to make a roux.
- Add port and stir until thick and bubbly.
- Mix in the beef base/paste and continue to stir.
- Add garlic powder, onion powder, nutmeg, parsley, paprika and pepper.
- Reduce heat slightly. Slowly add cream (one cup at a time).
- Add meatballs (I use pre-made frozen) and let simmer and incorporate together for 20-30 minutes.
- Either serve with egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
