Swedish Meatballs Instant Pot. If you are looking for a last minute dinner, you may want to try Swedish Meatballs in the Instant Pot. You can make them fairly quickly and then add them to a bed of noodles or rice. 

I know that summer has begun and it is a time when we are all very busy. However you still need to eat and the quicker we can cook our dinner, the more we get to play!

We love Swedish Meatballs at our house and I typically make them in the Crock Pot, but I decided it was time to try Instant Pot Swedish Meatballs, so I could make them quickly when I hadn’t planned ahead. And I have to admit that that happens quite often.

I just add a vegetable or a side salad with the Swedish Meatballs and it’s a quick and easy meal. I usually have everything that I need to make them, on hand. I always try to keep a bag of frozen meatballs in the freezer for those really busy nights when I just don’t know have time to make the meatballs.

But I have to admit that I really like this dish when I make the meatballs instead of using frozen meatballs. It is hard to calculate how much juice that you will get out of a frozen meatball, and I think that the juice from hamburger makes better sauce than the juice from frozen meatballs.

How Do I Make Swedish Meatballs Instant Pot?

  • Mix well and form mixture into 1 1/2″ or 2″ balls; I like to use a cookie scoop.
