Recipe by GLehtimaki
"My family's favorite Finnish meal is these Lihapyorykoita (Finnish Meatballs) with Punajuuret (Beets), and Perunasose (Mashed Potatoes). Serve with cranberry sauce, I personally like a quarter of a pickle on the side."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

Dont you hate it when people rate a recipe with a low rating and they obviously didnt make the dish? If you think 1 cup of whipping cream is too much that is fine you dont have to make the dish. BUT That is not a reason to give it a low rating. I found this dish to be just about perfect. The seasoning was great and the taste was delicious! Thank you for much! I will make this again.
The meatballs taste unique but the milk gravy was kind of bland - not worth the fat...
My family like my leaner version of this. I used ground turkey and used evaporated milk where the recipe called for whipping cream. Also, added a little bit of canola oi/butter to wet my flour after I browned the meatballs(not as much fat in turkey as in beef).Good recipe!
Wonderful exactly as written. I was a little worried about the lack of seasoning in the sauce, but the drippings from the meatballs flavor it perfectly. I served over egg noodles.
HYVAA, just like when I was growing up. Very good recipe. Nothing needs to be added or changed
Very good as is I would not change a thing! The meatballs came out tender and moist with lots of flavor!
A delicious comfort food. Reminds me of Swedish meatballs, which I adore. As the previous reviewer said, this recipe tastes great exactly as written. Will make it again....and again...and again!
As written, an instant family favorite--I second the other review that says nothing needs to be changed. The whole family (husband, children 3 and 1, and myself) wanted seconds. Tasty, economical comfort food. Can't wait to make it again!
