These Instant Pot Meatballs are life changing! Make with any meat, no sauteing, with or no sauce, fresh or frozen, as an appetizer or even add pasta for a one pot meal.

Meatballs in tomato sauce taste best if you let them stand open for 10 minutes. Then I toss them to coat in the sauce by shaking the inner pot and garnish with parsley or dill. Serve with desired whole grain and salad or dinner.
Transfer meatballs in a baking dish and stick toothpick into each one. Voila. Healthy and easy appetizer right there. Or serve right in Instant Pot (with toothpicks) while Keep Warm is on. Genius!
