Aquavit’s Michelin Star Meatballs

The New York restaurant Aquavit serves Nordic food and has received 2 Michelin stars. 

They’ve shared their recipe for meatballs by chef Emma Bengtsson.


1 pound ground beef

1 pound ground pork

2 ounce bread crumbs (preferably panko)

1 egg

2 ounce cream

1 ounce milk

2 tablespoon mustard (dijon)

4 tablespoon butter for searing

1 teaspoon allspice

black pepper, to taste

salt, to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 quart veal stock

1 quart heavy cream

1 tablespoon lingonberry jam


1. Mix the cream, milk, bread crumbs, mustard and egg together and let soak for 5-10 minutes.

2. Mix with the ground meat with the spices, then add in mustard mixture.

3. Mix well with your hands until fully incorporated.

4. To test the seasonings, fry a small sample in a pan and adjust to taste before rolling the rest.

5. Roll the meat into small balls around 1oz each and place on a baking paper. Let them sit under plastic in the fridge for 1 hour before searing them. This will help them keep their shape.

6. Sear meatballs on medium heat in the olive oil until about halfway cooked.

7. Then add butter to the pan and sear until the butter has browned and meatballs have cooked.

8. Reduce veal stock to half, add heavy cream and reduce to a third.

9. Add lingonberries, keep reducing for 15 minutes.

10. Strain and season with salt and pepper.

11. Serve with cream sauce, pickled cucumbers and mashed potatoes, if desired.
