I’m sure some of you grew up eating Swedish meatballs, but many of us associate this recipe with shopping at Ikea and that’s perfectly fine too. Flavor packed keto Swedish meatballs are served in creamy beef gravy. We kept the carbs low by skipping the breadcrumbs and using xanthan gum as a thickener.

Add the sour cream last with minimal heat and the sauce won’t break like that. Using creme fraiche instead u can cook it, but don’t cook sour cream. Either way, looks good !

As a swede i am almost offended by this recipe. Ground beef, diced onion, egg, (non-keto adds cream and bread crumbs), salt, pepper. Fry on all sides in butter. Add heavy cream and a buillion cube to the pan and let the residues come together, put the meatballs into the cream sauce and simmer/reduce to proper thickness. Serve with cauliflower mash (mashed potatoes non-keto). Serve with lingonberry jam.

The sauce doesn't look creamy it looks curdled. Which is a bit off putting!

A. Humphries says:
