Let’s take a short trip to Sweden !

Today is the 2nd December and guess how cold it is in Stockholm?! The temperatures will not go over -5°C! Do you realize how lucky you are: you do not need to be freezing in Sweden to discover its gastronomy…

Today, Ride the Flavour presents you a new recipe coming straight from Sweden : the Köttbullar. Usually served with mashed potato, we decided to turn it into another swedish speciality :  the rarakor med graslok  (kind of crispy potato galettes).

Give it a try!

FR : Les Köttbullar Suedois ! EN : The Swedish Köttbullar

Ingredients for 4 servings :

– 500 g minced beef/pork mixture (for example, 300 g beef and 200 g pork)
– 250 ml milk
– 75 g white breadcrumbs
– 1 egg
– 1 onion
– Parsley
– Salt, white pepper
– Spices

Special equipment : food processor

1) Finely dice the onion and sauté gently in a little butter without browning.

2) Dice the parsley the same way

3) Soak the breadcrumbs in milk

4) In a food processor, blend the minced meat with the onion, egg, milk/breadcrumb mixture and the spices to the proper consistency and taste.

5) Shape small meatballs and let them brown on all sides, while shaking the frying pan often. Do not let them too long in the frying pan: they should remain tender inside (very important!)


The rarakor med graslok (or crispy potato galettes) : 

Ingrédients for 4 servings :

– 8 potatoes
– Chives
– Garlic
– 2 T-spoon of flour
– Nutmeg, salt et peper
– Butter et oil

1) Peel the potatoes, rinse them and dry them with a dishcloth.

2) Grate the potatoes.

3) Finely dice the garlic and put it into the grated potatoes. Add the flour, the choped chives, the nutmeg, the salt and peper and mix it.

4) In a pan, put some butter and oil. When it is hot fry the galettes and flatten them in order to obtain 6/7 cm circles. Cook them until they are crispy and golden-colored on both sides.

You now have your köttbullar and your rarakor med graslok (optional challenge : pronounce these two words one after the other within 1 second). It only remains for you to plate your dish !

Your turn to taste! 😉
