keto swedish meatballs

Ingredients
Meatballs
 8 oz ground pork
 8 oz ground beef
 2 tbsp salted butter, softened
 1 egg
 ½ medium yellow onion, chopped
 ¼ tsp allspice
 ¼ tsp nutmeg
 ¼ tsp black pepper
Gravy
 ¼ cup heavy cream
 2 tbsp salted butter
 2 cups beef bone broth
 ½ tbsp coconut aminos
 ½ tsp xanthan gum(alternatively, can also use a small amount of cassava flour to thicken)
 1 pinch white pepper
 salt to taste
Directions
1

Heat 2 tbsp of butter over medium-high heat.

2

Add in the chopped onion and cook until soft but still slightly crunchy (about 6-8 minutes).

3

Set aside and allow the cooked onion to cool to room temperature.

4

Combine all of the ingredients (including the cooked onion) for the meatballs in a large bowl and mix with a spatula until well combine.

5

Using either a cookie dough scooper or your hands, scoop out meatballs and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet.

6

Cover your raw swedish meatballs and place in the fridge for an hour or overnight.

7

To cook the swedish meatballs, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

8

Place the meatballs evenly in the skillet and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side or until brown and fully cooked.

9

To make the gravy, heat the butter until melted and whisk in the xanthan gum. This should thicken and start to brown in a minute or two.

10

Stir in the bone broth and seasonings and whisk until well combined.

11

Reduce the heat to a simmer and add in the heavy cream.

12

Stirring frequently, allow gravy to simmer and thicken for 3-5.

13

Add your cooked swedish meatballs to the gravy, coat, and serve.
Optional: top with fresh chopped parsley.

14

Enjoy your keto swedish meatballs immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge.
