Slow Cooker Swedish Meatball Stew

September 15

Autumn arrived here in Ireland over the weekend with lots of rain and colder air. There’s nothing better than a stew to welcome the colder months and this meal in our house quickly turned into a staple to keep Sofie and the boys warm. You can absolutely make this without a slow cooker if you don’t have one at home.

Method
  1. Add all the ingredients for the meatballs, bar the butter & the potatoes, in a bowl, mix until combined and shape into small meatballs.
  2. Add a knob of butter to a frying pan on a medium/high heat and fry the meatballs until browned but not fully cooked. Fry in batches to not overcrowd the pan.
  3. Transfer the meatballs to the slow cooker and get as much of the juices in too, before adding in the potatoes.
  4. To make the sauce, melt the butter over a low heat and slowly mix in the flour. and When fully incorporated, add the stock and slowly bring to the boil while continuously stirring. Pour in the cream, mix and transfer to the slow cooker.
  5. Give everything a good mix in the slow cooker then cook on high for 4 hours or low for 6 hours.
  6. Serve with a sprinkle of fresh dill, a dollop of creme fraiche, spoonful of peas and lingonberry jam if you have it.
