This is not a drill: IKEA has released the recipe for its Swedish meatballs
If you've never ventured to IKEA to dine on some super affordable Swedish meatballs, you're really missing out. But, now you can finally experience the joys of eating a bonafide IKEA meatball because the furniture company graciously released their once extremely secretive recipe.
And, true to their instruction fashion, the recipe contains an illustrated step-by-step guide. Thankfully, cooking these bad boys is a lot easier than assembling one of their Ektorp sofas or Poäng armchairs.
The only hurdle is you have to do a bit of conversion from grams and milliliters to pounds and cups with their recipe amounts, as America enjoys a completely different metric system than the rest of the world.
"Missing your IKEA meatball fix? We’ve created a recipe for you to recreate this delicious dish in the comfort of your own home," IKEA UK saucily tweeted on Monday.
Ingredients include: beef and pork mince, onions and garlic, breadcrumbs, vegetable and beef stock, soy sauce and other pretty simple ingredients that you don't require you to go to one of those "fancy" stores.
After assembling your ingredients, all you need to do is follow six relatively easy cooking steps and -- voila -- IKEA's Swedish meatballs served in the comfort of your own home.
The recipe serves roughly four people...or one person who just really believes in his or herself.
