The Shortcut You Need For Extra Delicious Meatballs In The Instant Pot
Your grandma may have spent all afternoon crafting her famous meatballs, but if you’re short on time, try this Instant Pot trick for flavorful meatballs in a jiffy.
The secret to getting juicy, flavorful, meatballs in an Instant Pot is one extra ingredient: sausage. Simply blend your ground beef with some sausage for extra flavor.
Use pre-seasoned Italian sausage, loaded with herbs like parsley, fennel, basil, oregano, rosemary, and thyme, for an even more flavorful final product.
Moreover, the added fat from the sausage will make your meatballs even juicier. Use about eight ounces of chopped sausage per pound of ground meat.
Form your meatballs, sauté with a bit of sauce, then add them into your Instant Pot with the sauce to keep them moist. Cook on the high-pressure function for eight minutes.
