Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 180°C(fan)/ 400°F/ Gas 6 

Boil a kettle

Cut the potatoes (skins on) into bite-sized pieces

Add the potatoes to a pot of boiled water with a pinch of salt, bring to the boil over a high heat and cook for 8-10 min or until fork-tender

Once cooked, drain and return to the pot to steam-dry

2 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

While the potatoes are cooking, lay a piece of tin foil on a baking tray and place the green beans in the middle

Scrunch up the edges of the foil slightly, add 2 tbsp [3 tbsp] water and close the parcel tightly

Put the tray in the oven for 15 min or until the beans are tender – this helps lock in the nutrients

3 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

Combine the pork mince with the panko breadcrumbs, 1/2 [1] Knorr chicken stock cube (you'll use the rest later) and a generous pinch of pepper

Mix thoroughly with clean hands until fully combined, then shape into 12 [24] meatballs 

Re-boil a kettle

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick with a matching lid), with a large knob of butter over a medium heat

4 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

Once hot, add the meatballs to the pan and cook for 2 min, turning occasionally, until they are browned on most sides

Meanwhile, combine the remaining stock cube, Dijon mustard, Henderson's Relish and redcurrant jelly in 300ml [600ml] boiled water – this is your stock

Add the dried cranberries to a bowl and cover with boiled water 

Transfer the meatballs to a plate 

5 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

Return the pan to a medium heat, add 1 tbsp [2 tbsp] flour and stir until sandy (if your pan is looking dry add a small knob of butter)

Whisk the stock into the flour

Cook for 2-3 min until the stock has thickened slightly

6 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

While the sauce thickens, chop the dill finely, including the stalks

Add most of the chopped dill (save the rest for garnish) to the thickened sauce, return the meatballs to the pan and cook, covered, for 3-5 min further until the meatballs are cooked through and the sauce has thickened to a gravy-like consistency

7 Swedish Meatballs With Mash

Return the pot of drained potatoes to a low heat and add a generous knob of butter and a splash of milk 

Mash until smooth, then season with a pinch of salt and pepper
