While Ikea's meatballs are almost as famous as its ready-to-assemble furniture, here's how to make them in the comfort of your own kitchen, as reported by LADbible.

The British media recalls that it was in 2020, during the lockdown, that the Swedish company decided to reveal its recipe to comfort people.

Here are the necessary ingredients to make 16 to 20 meatballs:

- 500 g of minced beef

- 250 g of minced pork

- 1 finely chopped onion

- 1 clove of garlic (crushed or chopped)

- 100 g of breadcrumbs

- 1 egg

- 5 tablespoons of whole milk

- salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

1. Mix the beef and pork. Add the finely chopped onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg, and mix. Add the milk and season well with salt and pepper.

2. Shape the mixture into small round balls. Place them on a clean plate, cover them, and refrigerate for 2 hours.

3. In a pan, heat some oil over medium heat. Gently add your meatballs and brown them on all sides.

4. Once browned, add them to an ovenproof dish, cover them, and cook for 30 minutes at 180°C.
