Stein’s Swedish Meatballs & Lingonberry Sauce

Stein’s Swedish  Meatballs & Lingonberry Sauce

This is the Swedish Meatball recipe from Chef Zane at the Stein Eriksen Lodge –  Glitretind Restaurant. I made these meatballs at home, and then a few weeks later had them at the restaurant. If you follow the recipe and use the right ingredients, this recipe is exact. While dining at Stein’s Troll Hallen Lounge I had the opportunity to tell Chef Zane that I made his mom’s famous recipe, and that they were just as good as the ones I had ordered. He was pleased that I had success with his recipe, and he encouraged me to freeze them and keep them handy for quick meals. Thanks to Chef Zane, I now have a another quick meal always ready to make.
