You Can Now Make IKEA's Famous Meatballs At Home

Dreaming of IKEA’s famous meatballs? Well now you can make them yourself at home because the global furniture retailer with its even more iconic in-store restaurant has blessed us with the recipe.

In true IKEA fashion, the meatball recipe has been shared in cute step-by-step instructions, similar to a manual for building its furniture.


The recipe isn’t at all complicated, unlike building IKEA furniture, and it’s comprised of ingredients that can be easily found at your local grocery store. We bet you even have most them in your refrigerators at home.

Here’s how to make them!


For the meatballs

  • 500g beef mince
  • 250g pork mince
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed or minced
  • 100g breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 5 tablespoons of whole milk
  • generous salt and pepper


  • Combine beef and pork mince and mix with your fingers to break up any lumps. Add finely chopped onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg, and mix. Add milk and season well with salt and pepper
  • Shape mixture into small, round balls. Place on a clean plate, cover, and store in the fridge for 2 hours. This will help them hold their shape whilst cooking.
  • In a frying pan, heat oil on medium heat. When hot, gently add meatballs and brown on all sides.
  • When browned, add to an ovenproof dish and cover. Place in a hot oven (180°C or 160°C with a fan) and cook for 30 minutes more.

For the cream sauce:

  • dash of oil
  • 40g butter
  • 40g plain flour
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 150ml beef stock
  • 150ml thick double cream
  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard


  • Melt 40g of butter in a pan. Whisk in 40g of flour and stir for 2 minutes. Add 150ml of veg stock and 150ml of beef stock; continue to stir. Add 150ml of double cream, 2 tsp soy sauce, and 1 tsp dijon mustard.
  • Bring to a simmer and allow sauce to thicken.
  • When ready to eat, serve over meatballs with your favourite potatoes — either a creamy mash or mini boiled potatoes.
