Includes Three Delicious Recipes
Köttbullar (Swedish meatballs)
Sweden’s most famous dish must be Köttbullar / Swedish meatballs! Its popularity increased when the Swedish company, Ikea, started introducing it to the world at their stores. However, these meatballs did not originate in Sweden - the dish was based on a recipe that King Charles XII of Sweden brought back from Turkey in the early 18th century!
Renskavspanna (“Reindeer” Straganoff)
Renskavspanna has its root in the Sámi culture (one of the oldest indigenous people in northern Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia) where thin slices of frozen reindeer meat are fried in a pan with wild mushrooms. Traditionally renskav was a winter dish cooked over an open fire and made from frozen reindeer meat that had been buried in the snow. In our recipe, instead of reindeer we use semi-frozen beef ribeye steak that is thinly sliced/shaved and cook it in a mushroom sauce without compromising the taste!
Ärtsoppa with Pannkakor (pea soup with Swedish pancakes)
Thursday in Sweden is Ärtsoppa & Pannkakor day (pea soup with pancakes)! This classic has been a Thursday staple for Swedes for as long as it can remembered. There are many stories as to why Ärtsoppa & Pannkakor are always served on Thursdays. One is that Catholics in the middle ages made this dish on a Thursday to eat a filling meal before the Friday fast. Traditionally this Swedish pea soup is cooked in salted ham hock / pork knuckle but in our version, we made it vegan without any meat products. It is still as good especially when you are rewarded after with Pannkakkor, served with whipped cream and preserves!
