Spaghetti, Meatballs and Marinara - Electric Pressure Cooker

So in the past couple months I have purchased and come to depend on my electric press cooker! I love love love it and use it several times a week. I have an Instant Pot IP-DUO60 7-in-1 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt/1000W .

Tonight I made Spaghetti, Meatballs and Marinara and my family LOVED it!

Here is the recipe:
For the Meatballs:
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup milk
1/2 Parmesan cheese
1 large egg
1/2 pound ground pork
1/2 pound ground beef

For the Sauce:
2 Tablespoons Avocado Oil (or cooking oil of your choice)
1 onion, minced
Salt and Pepper
2 teaspoons dried oregano
4 cloves minced garlic
2 (28-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes

For The Sauce:
Heat oil in pressure cooker on Saute. Add onion and cook until softened for about 5 minutes.
Stir in oregano and garlic, cook until fragrant - about 30-45 seconds.

Stir in cruces tomatoes, season with salt and pepper. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Then transfer to a blender and bland until smooth. This step is not necessary if you like chunky sauce but I puree it because my kids are super picky and I don't want them to see what's in it - LOL

In a bowl mic bread crumbs, milk, Parmesan cheese, egg, ground pork and ground beef. Use your hands an squish it all together. Shape minute into 12-14 golf ball sized balls.

Gently put the meatballs in the sauce and put the lid on your pressure cooker. Set the pressure cooker to MANUAL and then set the time to 5 minutes. Make sure you seal the top too. Now cook your noodles.

Once your pressure cooker is done you can use the quick release method.

Sprinkle extra Parmesan Cheese on top and serve warm.

DANG! I forgot the Texas Toast in the freezer! I guess I will have to make it again!

Bon Apetite!
