Swedish Meatballs


As with most of my recipes, this is made to be simple.  Despite that, it does take a little prep time.  I prefer to get two pieces of meat from the store and turn them into ground meat using the food processor.  That way I can control the fat content.  This works well with the Dukan Diet.  But it is equally good without the diet.

While a pressure cooker is used here, it could just as easily be prepared in a conventional large stew pot, even in a slow cooker.


  • 1 Large Onion (chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Yogurt (plain and non-fat)
  • 1lb Ground Pork
  • 1lb Ground Beef
  • 1/2 cup Egg beaters (2 eggs can be substituted)
  • 1 teaspoon Splenda Brown (1 tsp sugar can be substituted)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Allspice - ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg - ground
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/3 cup Oat Bran
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 can Beef Broth (16 oz)
  • 1/4 cup Sour Cream - low fat


Step 1
Dice onion - saute in pressure cooker until turning translucent ( use a bit of oil)
Step 2
Combine onions and all ingredients except beef broth, yogurt, and sour cream in large mixing bowl. Mix until thoroughly combined.
Step 3
Pour broth and yogurt into the pressure cooker. Whisk to mix. Set pressure cooker to sauté to start warming the broth (shortens overall cooking time)
Step 4

Step 5
Seal pressure cooker and set to cook on high pressure for 12 minutes
Step 6
