  • 2 tbsp garlic and herb butter
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 16 ounces meat balls, frozen
  • 18 ounce jar beef gravy
  • 1/4 cup sliced pepperoncinis with juice (optional)


  • Set Instant Pot to saute (I use a 6 quart Instant Pot). Melt butter, add in onions and saute until they begin to soften. Add in garlic. Saute 1 minute.
  • Pour in beef broth and scrape bottom of pot to deglaze. Get any stuck bits off the bottom. Add in salt and pepper and stir.
  • Pour in meatballs, cover with gravy. Add pepperoncinis and juice. Cover with lid and set to lock. Make sure vent is closed. Set to manual high pressure for 6 minutes.
  • After cooking time is up, use quick release method (open valve to release steam and pressure). Remove lid and stir.
