Hi all,

I made these on the weekend and they worked quite well.  However there was so much sauce and it was so incredibly runny that it was quite off-putting. 

Has anyone been able to get the sauce to a gravy like consistency just by adding extra cornflour or do you need to reduce the liquid as well?

Thanks

I'd reduce the liquid a bit asha and you can always add some more cornflour slurry to the sauce at the end of cooking if it is too thin.  I've made this recipe but I think I prefer the other one on the forum.  You will probably find the sauce thickens as it cools so if you make it in advance, it is probably quite OK when reheated in the microwave later.

This has been my first big TM fail.  I was cooking lots of vege in the Varoma tray (with plenty of gaps) at the same time & it took well over an hr!  The final result was bland & a runny sauce.  I had heaps left & threw them in the bin.  I'll definitely never make these again.  Funnily enough though, I cooked the kids their batch earlier than the adult dinner & they loves them.

Hi everyone.  I know I am months (ok, over a year) behind the last post, and haven't read through all of them but..I bought my copy of MOTM in August and cannot find Swedish Meatballs in it anywhere. The index claims it to be on page 15 in line with what everyone else says but in mine I have Thai Chilli Pork Sausage Rolls, which incidentally is also listed in the index on page 15.
Has anyone else come across this?

I'll send it to you arluin, that's a strange one. Chilli Pork Sausage rolls is on Page 16 in my book.
