Meatball Stew In The Instant Pot

J. White Harris


This stew turned out to be delicious. I wanted to quickly put together a meal that would be ready to eat in a short time. The meatballs were fully cooked. The vegetables were cut in chunks or larger pieces and the beef broth and onion soup mix supplied the flavoring. It would be easy to add other ingredients or spices you might happen to have on hand but it's great the way it is.

How to Make Meatball Stew In The Instant Pot


  1. Place the meatballs, potatoes, carrots, onion, garlic, celery, and rutabaga in the Instant Pot.
  2. Combine the tomato soup, beef broth, and onion soup mix and pour over meatball mixture.
  3. Close the lid, be sure the steam release handle is set to SEALING, and press the MEAT/STEW key. The ADJUST key can be used to change the cooking time. I set the pressure to high for 11 minutes.
  4. When it is done, wait another 10 minutes then push the CANCEL key and turn the steam release handle to VENTING. When the pressure has dissipated, carefully open the lid.
  5. Tip: Using hot pads I lift the cooking pot from the Instant Pot and move it to the table and serve the food right out of the cooking pot.
