Alton Cooks the Superstar Sabotage: Meatballs
Swedish Meatballs 03:10
While many consider meatballs the ultimate accompaniment to classic spaghetti and tomato sauce, these traditionally beefy rounds go beyond Italian comfort food, as Superstar Sabotage winner Eric Greenspan showed off on last night's finale when he presented them in an Asian-style dish. Host Alton Brown, too, puts a creative spin on the everyday meatball in his easy-to-make recipe for Swedish Meatballs (pictured above).
Ideal for weekend tailgating or a casual appetizer, Alton's top-rated meatballs are made with a mix of ground beef and pork, and they're portioned into bite-size rounds so they're easy to eat at a party. The key element of Alton's recipe is his gravy; instead of simmering the meatballs in a tomato-garlic sauce, he sautes them on the stove before blanketing them in a rich, creamy broth-based topping laced with fragrant allspice.
