Everyone knows that the true highlight of visiting a certain furniture shop once in a while is the possibility of sampling their famous meatball dish. We’ve tried to recreate that “je ne sais quois” so you can enjoy this meal in the comfort of your own home. For us, it’s all in the sauce and the sweet, fruity drizzle. While lingonberries are tricky to source, we’ve gone for cranberry to offer the same tangy flavour. "Smaklig måltid!"

Our 25 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Get prepped

    Heat the oven to 200C (fan 180C/gas 6) and put the kettle on to boil.

    Mix 200ml boiling water with the MEATBALL SAUCE STOCK in a jug and keep aside.

    Put the meatballs on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 mins, until cooked through.

    Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, then drain and mash with butter.

    (While they cook, continue with Step 2.)

  • 2.

    Make the sauce

    Heat a little oil in a wide, lidded pan then add the onion. Cover with a lid and cook for 5 mins to soften.

    Take off the lid and add a knob of butter and 2 tsp flour and stir for 2 mins.

    Mix in the SWEDISH SEASONING and cook for 1 min.

    Add a splash of the stock and mix it in well. Then continue to add it gradually, mixing well each time.

    Cook until the sauce reduces to a gravy-like consistency, then stir in 2 tsp of the CRANBERRY DRIZZLE.

    Turn down the heat and gently stir through the creme fraiche.

  • 3.

    Finishing touches

    Boil the frozen peas for 2 mins, then drain.

  • 4.


    Serve the meatballs with the mash, the sauce and peas alongside. Pour the rest of the CRANBERRY DRIZZLE over the meatballs and serve.

Got this on order.. after doing the Cajun meat balls I found them to be a little tough... Going todo these in a slow cooker to get them tender. Anyone tried it and had any success?

Not a favourite

James - Nov 27, 2019

Very nice but I suggest not to use as much of the cranberry as the recipe suggests unless you like it sweet. Very tasty though.

Joanne - Nov 26, 2019

Delicious... great family meal!

This was a nice dish, but very sweet sauce! Especially cranberry very sweet!

Kelly - Nov 18, 2019

Such a fantastic tasting recipe. We used the M&S mini meatballs instead of the bigger ones and they were great. Both children tried this and loved it too, great meal, will get again.

Jessica - Nov 17, 2019

Didn’t like the sauce at all. Ended up making gravy instead. Cranberry extract was too bitter.

Nigel - Nov 16, 2019

a little too much cranberry for my taste, so will use a bit less of it next time. I think with a bit of trail and error to get the right balance and this will just get better

Rebecca - Nov 15, 2019

Nothing special in my humble opinion
