homemade Ikea meatballs with mash


Special thanks to 煮家男人 Bob’s your uncle‘s video, which I’ve followed to make this dish. Have to say, the man who can cook is pretty attractive too hhaa~~

Who have never been to Ikea to grab some homeware and pop into the canteen for some reasonably priced casual lunch/dinner. My favourite is Ikea meatball with mash, the kid portion is enough for me… 5 meatballs and a spoonful of mash with gravy!~~ I have made meatball before in tomato sauce so its nothing new to me but with this one… the Ikea alike gravy, I cannot stop myself from trying it out. Very simple and easy recipe to follow.

The original video is here.

Else, I have watched it and made some notes for you guys.
