One thing that we choose not to do in the RV is fill the propane tanks. We don’t have a need to do this, but it DOES prevent us from having a stove. This really isn’t an issue, but when the craving hits, for things like hamburgers, and it just happens to be a weekend it’s raining in San Diego (go figure) – we have to improvise.
From that was birthed this Meatball recipe!
Dave was very energetic for this dinner – as you can see in the video below! Check out the full recipe after the video.
1 Pound Beef
1 Pound Chicken Apple Sausage small chopped
2 slice Bread chopped
1/4 cup Cream
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 cups Cheddar Cheese
4 Garlic Cloves diced
1/2 Yellow or Sweet Onion small chopped
1/4 cup Ketchup
1 Tbsp Parley
1 tsp Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Pepper
1/2 tsp Granulated Garlic
1/2 tsp Granulated onion
1 cup Italian Bread Crumbs
1 cup Chicken Broth
2 Tbsp Corn Starch
3 Tbsp cold water
Chop 2 slices of bread, add to a Large mixing bowl, and stir with the 1/4 cup cream and 1 egg
Small chop 1/2 yellow or sweet onion, dice 4 large cloves of garlic, and small chop 1 pound of apple chicken sausage
Add chopped onion, diced garlic, chopped apple chicken sausage and the rest of the meatball flavor ingredients to the large mixing bowl, stir all ingredients together
Mix 1 pound of ground hamburger into the ingredients
Roll into balls about 3 inch diameter
Add 1 cup of bread crumbs to a plate and roll each meatball in the crumbs to completely cover each meatball
Press sauté on your Instant Pot
When HOT, add 2 Tbsp olive oil and carefully add the meatballs
Brown three or four sides of the meatballs for 2.5 minutes each
Use long tongs and a spatula to carefully move the meatballs to a separate plate
Turn off Instant Pot and add 1 cup Chicken Broth
Scrape the bottom of the pot clean with a flat wooden spatula
Add all meatballs back into the Instant Pot
Place the lid onto the Instant Pot and pressure cook for 6 minutes plus 6 minutes of natural pressure release, then release the pressure
Mix 2 Tbsp cornstarch and 3 Tbsp water to a cup and mix well to make the cornstarch slurry
Remove the Instant Pot lid after the pin drops and use long tongs to move the meatballs to a plate
Press cancel, press sauté, and stir cornstarch slurry into the broth
Bring broth to a simmer stirring often until the boil looks velvety, about 3 – 4 minutes and press cancel
Use a ladle to cover meatballs in their incredible gravy and dig in!
