  2. Add tomatoes and simmer 2 - 3 minutes.
  3. Add beef broth and bring back to a simmer.
  4. Add meatballs and vegetables, cover and continue to cook until heated through.

INSTANT POT DIRECTIONS

  1. Using saute mode, cook garlic, onion, pepper, and salt in olive oil until onion is translucent and garlic is fragrant.
  2. Add tomatoes, beef broth, meatballs, and vegetables. Cover and set to “sealing”. Cook on manual (high pressure) for 3 minutes.
  3. When time has finished, hit cancel and do a very careful quick pressure release. If there is sputtering, set back to sealing and continue to release pressure in short careful bursts.
