A tasteful icon from IKEA since 1985. Gently seasoned to enhance the meat flavour and are great to enjoy with traditional condiments or in new combinations.

Meatballs should taste like meat. That’s why we’ve seasoned the beef and pork gently with only a few ingredients, every one of them enhancing the meat flavor even more.

Easily portioned. Prepare the amount needed, leave the rest in the freezer.

Just as tasty warm as they are cold, e.g. cut in half as a sandwich topping.

A buffet of good

Today’s recipe for the classic IKEA meatball rolled out from our test kitchen already in 1985. Since then, the IKEA meatball has become an icon on plates around the world and a proud example of traditional Swedish cooking. But, when we asked customers on three different continents what food they prefer, we realized we had to extend our meatball family with tasty alternatives.

“Not everyone eats beef or pork, so we went into the kitchen to create new recipes,” says David Johansson, chef and product developer at IKEA Food Services. First came the chicken ball – an alternative for those who like meat, but not necessarily red meat. “Like all our meatballs it’s just as good hot as cold, and we’ve seasoned it gently so it fits different cuisines and local flavors.”

Heated arguments

Severin threw himself into the job of creating the perfect meatball recipe, a challenge that involved long and passionate discussions with his team and Ingvar Kamprad. Even within Sweden, opinions vary greatly on how a meatball should taste. Between Ingvar hailing from the south, and Severin a couple of dialects north, there were deeply rooted disagreements about what a real Swedish meatball should taste like.

Cold facts

Over the course of 10 months, Severin hardly left the kitchen. He was totally engulfed and put his heart and soul into finding the right recipe. He not only had to create a meatball that tasted good, he had to create one that could be made in batches of more than 300 kg each.

More than 1 billion sold every year

Nearly a year after the project started, IKEA restaurants began serving the IKEA version of Swedish meatballs. Each time a new IKEA store opened, Severin could see thousands of people lining up to be served. “It warms my heart to know I had a small piece of doing something tasty for a lot of people. The meatball embodies so much of the IKEA culture: it’s convenient, it’s Swedish, and it’s for the many. And after so many years, it’s still on the menu at every IKEA store in the world.”

Favorites against climate change

Sustainability was also a reason to create new options. “With the veggie ball we wanted to offer something as appreciated as the classic meatball, but plant-based and with less environmental impact,” explains David. The veggie ball has a carbon footprint that is 20 times lower than the classic meatball, the chicken ball has a carbon footprint that is four times lower. With more alternatives you can not only choose between more favorites, you can also decide how big environmental impact your meal should have.

New flavors in a classic shape

The latest, but not the last, member of the IKEA meatball family is the salmon and cod ball. It contains pieces of salmon that are too small to be used as whole fillets. “And since it’s very tasty meat, we thought, why not make delicious fish balls of it instead?” says David. He also tells about a coming addition to the family. It will be made of plant-based proteins, but taste and look like meat. That’s good news for meat lovers who want to eat more sustainably from time to time. “A lot has happened since 1985. Now, there are eatable IKEA icons for more of the many people. No matter if you’re flexitarian, vegan, have dietary needs or cultural preferences.”
