Porcupine Meatballs IP

These were so good and reminded me of when my sister and I made these for our parents 25 anniversary. I’m sure these ones were better! I sure make them again. They’d be great to bring to a potluck or any type of gathering.

The only thing I did different was I didn’t add the onion, i used a tbsp of onion flakes, a hand full of parmesan cheese and hand full of bread crumbs. I didn’t use the bread and milk. I used condensed tomato ‘with basil and oregano’. I put the meatballs in the oven at 425 for 10 minutes first, I like the brown on them by doing that. We didn’t have potatoes, but the french fries were awesome!


1 lb Ground Beef (80% to 90% Lean)
• 1 Tbsp Onion, grated or finely diced
• 1 Egg
• 1/4 cup Long Grain White Rice (uncooked, rinsed)
• 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
• 1 tsp Kosher Salt (or 3/4 tsp table salt)
• 1/2 tsp Pepper
• 1 tsp Garlic Powder
Optional (if you need to use leaner meat, this helps)
• 3 Tbsp Heavy Cream (or half and half)
• 2 Tbsp Bread Crumbs
• 1 (10.75 oz) can Condensed Tomato Soup
• 1 can Water or Broth (use the soup can)
• 2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
• 1 tsp Red Wine Vinegar

Mix all of the ingredients for the meatballs together and form into 12 to 14 small meatballs. Set aside.
1. Mix the sauce ingredients together and stir well to combine. Pour into the pot and turn on the Sauté mode to start the sauce warming up.
Pressure Cook the Meatballs
1. When the sauce is just starting to simmer, stir it and carefully add the meatballs to the pot.
2. Close the lid of the pressure cooker and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position. Cancel the Sauté mode.
3. Press the Manual (or Pressure Cook) button, and then the + or – button to choose 25 minutes.
4. When the cooking cycle ends, let the pot sit and naturally release for 15 minutes. Then manually release the remaining steam until the pin in the lid drops.
5. Open the lid and serve the meatballs with some sauce over them.
6. These Instant Pot Porcupine Meatballs go well with crusty bread, salad, or a vegetable side dish.

Recipe Notes
A few of my readers suggested cooking some chopped potatoes at the same time in the sauce.

Thank you
