How To Cook Frozen Meatballs in the Instant Pot

If you have a bag of frozen meatballs in your freezer, cook them in the Instant Pot! Instant Pot Frozen Meatballs cook up in 10 minutes! It's a quick and easy dinner your family will love!

Set your Instant Pot to saute for 3 minutes. Add the olive oil and minced garlic to the Instant Pot.

Cancel the saute function and add the can of tomatoes to the Instant Pot and the Italian Seasoning. Stir the sauce.

Place the trivet insert into the tomato sauce.  Add the frozen meatballs to the Instant Pot on top of the trivet. Nestle the meatballs into the sauce as much as you can. Close the lid and make sure the knob is set to the sealing position.

Set the Instant Pot cooking time to 5 minutes on high pressure. After the cooking time is done, do a quick release of the pressure by carefully turning the steam knob on top of the lid.

The trivet insert keeps the meatballs from sitting on the bottom of the pot. If you don't have a trivet insert, the steamer basket or steamer insert will work as well.
