Ikea is terrific. Who doesn’t like Ikea. Its mindboggling how everything they do is superb- be it the design, the furniture or the food. Simply brilliant.
Everytime we walk into IKEA, we drop into their canteen to grab a quick bite. Both my husband and son are big fans of their Swedish meatballs, so that is usually in demand.
I just love the sauce that they serve with the meatballs. It is simply outstanding.
Try this recipe for the exact same taste. I promise that under 5 minutes, you can have this sauce ready to go with meatballs of your choice- Swedish or otherwise.
- Cream- 100 ml
- Water or any stock ( veg/ chicken/beef)- 200 ml
- Light soy sauce- 1 tsp
- Plain flour- 1 tbsp
- Salt and pepper to taste
Heat the stock in a pan. If using a stock cube, dilute it with water and warm in the pan.
Add in the cream and thicken with white flour while stirring constantly. You could also choose to omit the flour.
Ensure the mixture is on low heat, and while stirring constantly, add in the soy sauce.
Adjust the salt and pepper to your taste. As the soy sauce is salty, you might not need any more salt, but you might want to add pepper powder for a bit of heat.
Serve the sauce with the meatballs and mashed potatoes.
