Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs Recipe – Six Sisters’ Stuff
If you like the famous Ikea meatballs, you will love these Swedish Slow Cooker meatballs. These are as easy to make and taste as good as anything you get at Ikea. It literally took me 5 minutes to put them together in the morning and they were perfectly cooked up at dinner time.
These Swedish clay pot dumplings are a delicious and filling dish. We love served served as a main course paired with egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
They are also the perfect appetizer for any party or tailgating event. We bet you won’t be able to leave the party without everyone asking for the recipe.

3. Add the dumplings
and mix until the dumplings are covered with sauce
4. Cover and cook over high heat for 4-6 hours or low for 8-10.
5. Add the sour cream for the last 30 minutes of cooking (to prevent it from setting off, you’ll probably want to put it low or warm for this step).
6. Serve over rice or mashed potatoes.
Frozen vs. Homemade Meatballs
We use frozen dumplings in this recipe, but homemade dumplings will work just as well. You can use this recipe for homemade meatballs (just use steps 2-8).
To use homemade meatballs, first brown them everywhere and then add them to the recipe.

Substitutions in slow-cooking Swedish dumplings:
We know that there are several people who are allergic to mushrooms (or who don’t really love them). You can substitute chicken cream or broccoli soup cream instead of mushroom soup cream.
You can also skip the chopped mushrooms completely with a not too big difference.
