Making meatballs using your Instant Pot. Ingredients:
• 1/2-pound ground pork–sometimes this is a little hard to find. Ask the butcher if you don’t see it

• 1 egg–used as a binder
• 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese–you can use fresh or powdered cheese
• 1 Tbsp minced garlic–or 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
• 1/4 cup breadcrumbs–you can use plain breadcrumbs, panko, or Italian breadcrumbs
• 1 Tbsp dried parsley–or 3 Tbsp fresh parsley

Sauce:
• 1 Tbsp olive oil
• 1 cup diced onion–try using frozen diced onions if you don’t like chopping
• 1 Tbsp minced garlic–or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1 cup beef broth–or 1 cup water
• 1 teaspoon of Better than Bullion
• 1 bay leaf
• A pinch of red pepper
• 1 (28 oz) can crushed tomatoes–for best texture, use crushed tomatoes
