Swedish Meatball sauce

Our Grandma Raiser used to make Swedish Meatballs for us almost as often as her spaghetti sauce.  Although most of the time she would use the Ikea sauce packet, this one is pretty close to it and nice for when you don't have an Ikea nearby!

  • Cream Sauce

  • 12cup  half-and-half
  • cup  low sodium beef broth
  • 14teaspoon  soy sauce
  • tablespoon  white flour
  • tablespoon  butter
  • Melt butter in pan and slowly add flour, whisk untill there are no more clumps.
  • Next whisk in beef stock, soy sauce and half and half.
  • Season with salt and pepper as needed.
