I've shared this recipe with a few C-D'ers over the past several months, and someone suggested that I post it here. So here you go, kids - a recipe handed down in my family. My mom received the recipe from her Swedish great-aunt, around 1945.

SWEDISH MEATBALLS

3/4 lb ground beef
1/2 lb ground pork
1 well beaten egg
1/2 cup milk*
1/2 cup raw rice

Mix together and form into balls. Drop into following boiling sauce:

1 pint tomatoes
1 pint water
1 large onion, chopped
1 tsp. chili powder
salt to taste

Bring sauce to boil and gently drop in meatballs. Simmer gently for 2 hours.

*Note ~ I use less than 1/2 cup milk. The meat mixture is a little too mushy otherwise and hard to form.

This doesn't sound Swedish, since they are usually so bland, and the gravy is white. This recipe sounds much better.
