Instant Pot Mississippi Meat Balls

Maybe 7 or 8 years ago, a friend at work brought Mississippi Pot Roast to a Pot Luck at work. I Immediately fell in love. I Figured out a Mississippi Pot Roast of my own with my friend’s guidance and soon later I had a crazy craving for meatballs but wanted something I’ve never had before. Mississippi Meatballs! Of course! I’ve done it a few different ways along the way but I think this is my favorite way to cook up some Mississippi Meatballs.
