Perfect Mid-Weekday meal! 30 minutes and it is in your belly!

I still cannot believe that I am blogging again.  Not that I swore it off or anything, I just never thought that I would get organized and motivated again to do this.

I mean, I really love blogging and what goes with it.  I love creating recipes for more than just work and I really love sharing them with people who might need something different for dinner.

Depression is a major motivation suck.  If you have ever been through it and came out the other side a better person, I commend you.  You are an amazing person and you deserve all the meatballs and pats on the back.

I don’t know how I made it through the last couple of years, it has been really hard for me and my family, but we did it and we are stronger for it.

I am going to be throwing another amazing Instant Pot recipe for you.  This tool is literally one of the best things that I have ever found in my home kitchen.

A lot of these recipes have been changed from a manual pressure cooker that I’ve used in the professional kitchens that I have been in and fixed to fit into the Instant Pot perfectly.

My family loves meatballs, any kind of meatballs, we are so there.

Swedish Meatballs

I wanted to make a Swedish meatball in the Instant Pot

with a deep beef and mushroom gravy to go on top. Let me tell you, I have succeeded completely.

These meatballs have a rich flavor, go well over potatoes or noodles (I always choose noodles) and remind me of what my grandmother used to make me as a child.

The best part of these meatballs?  They take less than 30 minutes to make and while they are in the Instant Pot, you can make the noodles to put them on.  

From fridge to mouth in half an hour, perfect for busy families!
