Swedish Meatballs................well kinda

Okay this was a lazy dish, I made it from what we had cause I didn't want to go to the store. Don't laugh at the ingredients, cause this stuff rocked!!

2 Envelopes of brown gravy mix
1 can of Coke
2 cups of Milk
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce
2 TBS Butter
Little Garlic and onion powder and salt and pepper to taste.
1/2 big bag of frozen meatballs

Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil and let simmer 1 hours.

Serve over rice. These had just a little sweetness from the coke and were fairly rich from the milk and butter. Very very good improvised meal if I may say so myself.

Your recipe looks ok Larry I would substatute sour cream for the milk some sweet German wine instead of Coke & add paprika to your blend. that would make a more Bavarian flavor.

I have tasted them made with grape jelly, heinz chili sauce & a gravy mix before too. They were pretty good.

Understood, I have done the same thing many times. The Coke thing turned me off though. My mom makes spagatti & metballs with prego coke & them little frozen meatballs. Me & the wife don't eat it, My kids like it but its just non-union to do that to a tomatoe sauce.

JB, try coke or leftover coffee in a pot roast some time. You'll never know it was coke, but is a good base believe it or not for a sauce. It acts as a base as well as a tenderizer from the acid.
