Swedish Meatballs with Rice: More Comfort Food

Swedish Meatballs is another one of those comfort foods from my childhood. It's the only food that I can remember my older brother actually cooking and not just microwaving, and it's one I've never cooked for my husband because I've been on a red meat hiatus for about... 8 years? I've never had Swedish Meatballs when they weren't made from this seasoning packet, but I can imagine a "real" recipe would taste incredible.
