Meat Balls in Sweet Gravy


This recipe comes from my German grandmother. Are they German or Swedish? It doesn't matter. They're definitely sweet.



  1. Make small meat balls from ground meats, crumbs, egg, minced onion, salt and pepper.
  2. Brown chopped onions in butter.
  3. Add flour and stir to brown and cook for about two minutes.
  4. Add vinegar, water and brown sugar. Stir until slightly thickened.
  5. Taste gravy and add more brown sugar if you wish.
  6. Add meatballs and gently boil for 30 minutes.
  7. Serve with mashed potatoes.
