  • Cooked Perfect® Frozen Meatballs Italian Style*
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 can beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • parsley for garnish


  1. Add chopped onions to a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onions with your preferred cooking oil, stirring occasionally, until caramelized (about 10 minutes). While onions are cooking, thaw your package of Cooked Perfect® Frozen Meatballs.
  2. Add thawed Cooked Perfect® Frozen Meatballs to pan with onions and allow to brown for about 3-5 minutes. Remove meatballs and onions from pan and set aside in a large bowl.
  3. Set aside 1/2 cup of beef broth in a small mixing bowl. Add remaining beef broth and entire can of coconut milk to the pan in which you cooked the onions and meatballs. Add garlic powder and onion powder. Whisk until well combined, then simmer for 3-5 minutes over medium high heat.
  4. Stir cornstarch into the 1/2 cup of beef broth you kept aside. Once cornstarch has dissolved, add this mixture to sauté pan with your sauce, stir, and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  5. Once sauce starts to thicken, add meatballs and onions back to pan and stir to coat in sauce. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 10 minutes.
  6. We served our Swedish Meatballs over egg noodles, but they are also fantastic over potatoes, rice, or veggies.
