Take homemade meatballs to a whole new level with this Swedish-meatball inspired stew. The blend of tender cremini mushrooms, beef and pork makes for the perfect cold-weather meal. For the ultimate comfort meal, serve the meatballs glazed in a creamy mushroom gravy sauce over aromatic Success® Basmati Rice to absorb all of that flavor!
Prepare rice according to package directions.
Meanwhile, combine ground beef, pork, bread crumbs, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, pepper, allspice and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Roll mixture into 1-inch meatballs.
Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium heat. Working in batches, cook meatballs for 5-8 minutes, or until evenly browned. Transfer to a plate.
Add mushrooms, thyme and remaining salt to skillet. Cook for 5-8 minutes, or until slightly browned. Sprinkle mushrooms with flour and cook, stirring, for 1-2 minutes. Gradually whisk in broth and cream. Bring mixture to a boil.
Return meatballs to skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until sauce thickens slightly and meatballs are cooked through. Remove from heat. Stir in Parmesan and lemon juice.
Serve meatballs and sauce over rice. Garnish with chives and cracked black pepper.
To make this dish more traditional, serve the meatballs with a dollop of berry jam or cranberry sauce on the sauce, if desired.
