Shake Shack shared a step-by-step tutorial to make their iconic cheese sauce in their Shake Shack at Your Shack series.
To recreate it entirely, you’ll need American cheese, cheddar cheese, canola oil, white wine vinegar, jalapeño, onion, salt, peppercorns, heavy cream, and white wine.
- Grease a pan with canola oil.
- Sauté onions, jalapeño, peppercorns, and salt.
- Once the onions are translucent, add in white wine vinegar and white wine.
- Wait for that to reduce down, add in the heavy cream.
- Turn off the heat, and let all those ingredients steep together for about 30 minutes.
- Strain the cream to separate it from the solid ingredients.
- Put it back in the pan and bring to a light boil before whisking in the cheeses.
The finished product is that creamy cheese sauce you love to dip your crinkle fries in with your Shake Shack meal, so looks like I’ll be putting this on everything for the next few weeks. Don’t judge me!

On Monday, IKEA UK and Ireland shared a recipe for recreating IKEA’s popular Swedish meatballs at home.
“We know that some people might be missing our meatballs, which is why we’ve released an at-home alternative which, using easily accessible ingredients, will help those looking for some inspiration in the kitchen,” said Lorena Lourido, the country food manager at IKEA UK and Ireland. “Staying at home can be hard, but we want to help make everyone’s lives that little bit easier and more enjoyable.
“Bon appétit or, smaklig måltid, as we say in Sweden!”
Makes 16 – 20
500 grams (or 17.6 ounces) ground beef
250 grams (or 8.8 ounces) ground pork
1 onion, finely chopped
1 clove of garlic (crushed or minced)
100 grams (3½ ounces) breadcrumbs
5 tablespoons of whole milk
Salt and pepper to taste
Ingredients: ‘Iconic’ Swedish Cream Sauce
Dash of oil
40 grams (3 tablespoons) butter
40 grams (3 tablespoons) plain flour
150 milliliters (⅔ cup) vegetable stock
150 milliliters (⅔ cup) beef stock
150 milliliters (⅔ cup)l thick double cream
2 teaspoons soy sauce
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Combine beef and pork and mix thoroughly to break up any lumps. Add finely chopped onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, egg and mix. Add milk and season well with salt and pepper.
Shape mixture into small, round balls. Place on a clean plate, cover and store in the fridge for 2 hours (to help them hold their shape while cooking).
In a frying pan, heat oil on medium heat. When hot, gently add your meatballs and brown on all sides.
When browned, add to an ovenproof dish and cover. Place in a hot oven (325 degrees F) and cook for a further 30 minutes.
Begin making the cream sauce: In frying pan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and continue cooking, stirring continuously, for 2 minutes, allowing the flour to cook through. Add the vegetable stock and beef stock and continue to stir. Add the thick double cream, 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard. Bring to a simmer and allow the sauce to thicken. Continue to stir.
When ready to eat, serve with your favorite potatoes – either creamy mashed potatoes or mini new boiled potatoes. Enjoy!
