Instant Pot Bacon Cheeseburger Meatball Sliders Recipe From Val's Kitchen

I love meatballs. I love my Instant Pot. I’ve discovered that I really like meatballs made in the Instant Pot. They can wind up with that slow cooked flavor we all love without taking all of the hours that it takes to slow cook them. If you make your meatballs large enough they also work out really well if you’re making sliders. Take a giant meatball and cut it in half and it’s the perfect size to put on a slider bun. These meatballs came out nice and tender, and were quite tasty. Hubby really enjoyed them, although he said the flavor reminded him a bit more of sloppy joes than cheeseburgers. Either way they were a hit and gone in the blink of an eye. Here’s how I made them and used them for meatball sliders.

Instructions

Place all ingredients except the catsup, steak sauce and water into a large mixing bowl and combine thoroughly.

Form meatballs from the beef mixture. (I made mine fairly large, which allows me to use them as whole meatballs or half them for sliders.)

Pour the catsup mixture over the meatballs.

Set the Instant Pot to cook on manual high for 5 minutes.

Once cooking cycle has completed, do a quick pressure release.

Sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top and serve immediately on a slider roll.

    I love how easy a recipe looks from the instant pot standpoint. I don’t own one, so I would need to swap out for a slow cooker.

    My stomach just growled. I need to try these out. Everyone in my house loves bacon and burgers, so I imagine they’d all be pleased with these.

    I don’t know why, but I have always liked sliders more than big burgers or sandwiches. These sound yummy even if they taste more like sloppy joes like your husband said.

    There’s so much goodness here within one pot! And I must say that the pickle looks divine too!
    What’s better than bacon and meatballs? I love the sliders size because regular burgers are always too much for me.

    Hey Valerie, I wish I could say that I’m gonna make it right away. ? You see, I’m a vegan. Will share this recipe with my friend. But I am definitely now going to buy an instant pot and try out something.
