"A quick but very tasty sauce to add to already prepared frozen meatballs. This recipe makes a generous amount of sauce for a 1/2 package (20 oz) of meatballs. Serve over egg noodles or rice."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

frozen cooked meatballs, thawed
Yum! Easy to make and the kids loved it! I used 1/2 skim milk and 1/2 cream so it wasn't so heavy and it turned out great!
Not good. Why the beef broth?
I used the video tutorial from Allrecipes.com to make the Swedish meatballs to complement the sauce. It is fast and easy. The overall taste was good. I may continue to research other sauces.
I gave it four stars for the following reasons:
1. I've never had Swedish Meatballs before and don't know what it's supposed to taste like.
2. When I was finished with the recipe, I had to add a dollup of sour cream - the soy sauce flavor was very strong. Husband said this helped a ton! DH loved it - DS, who is picky, didn't let a drop hit the floor (and he doesn't like red meat!).
This is a good starter sauce for you to customize to your own tastes. I started with my favorite brown gravy mix (Southeastern Mills - very good!). When it was thickened to my liking, I added a concentrated beef stock, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, soy sauce & worcestershire. A little bit of sour cream for tang & a splash of red wine to thin it a bit. I added the sauce to already warmed meatballs and let it finish in the oven. Served over butter noodels - very good!
I love the simplicity of this recipe. I am legally blind, so in order to make things even easier,I have made up several seasoning blends from this site. In this dish I used my own Swedish Seasoning Blend.. It consists of 2 tsp Sea salt; 1 tsp each: allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg & fresh cracked black pepper. I use 1 tsp for 4 servings in a recipe replacing all other seasonings. and with that change this was a 5 star for us. Bobbi
This is a great basic recipe. I doubled the meatballs and seasoned the sauce to my taste. Its great served over egg noodles with warm rolls:) definitely a keeper, will make again.
This was wonderful. Try adding a splash of sherry, 1/2 tablespoon of Dale's steak seasoning and a small can of mushroom slices for a different, and awesome alternative. We served these at a wine tasting and they were a huge hit!
