Return skillet to medium-high heat. It’s not my favorite way to make them because the Swedish meatball sauce doesn’t thicken the way it does on the stove top, but yes, this can easily be made in the crock pot! You can also cook the meatballs in the sauce and transfer to a slow cooker to keep them warm, if you’re entertaining. Read my honest review here. Add 1 tablespoon butter and flour and whisk to combine, about 30 seconds. The meatballs are so flavorful and remind me so much of the famous ones from Ikea. Gradually whisk in water, beef base, and steak sauce, scraping and breaking up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. We like to serve ours with a creamy mashed cauliflower or cauliflower rice.. You are going to love this recipe for easy Crockpot Swedish Meatballs..
