Health Highlights


1/2 cup White rice, long-grain, dry
1/4 cup chopped Yellow onion
1/4 cup Beef broth (stock)
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/3 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Allspice, ground
1 1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
454 gm Beef, ground (or turkey)
2 tbsp Vegetable oil
1/2 can (26oz) Marinara pasta sauce
1/3 cup Beef broth (stock)
3 tsp Granulated sugar


In a mixing bowl, combine rice, onion, 1/4 beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, allspice, salt and pepper. Add ground beef to the bowl and fold into mixture.

Form the meat mixture into 1 1/2-inch balls.

Warm the pressure cooker, with the lid off. Heat oil on HIGH or “brown”, until sizzling.

Place meatballs in pressure cooker and brown on at least 2 sides. Work in multiple batches to cook all the meatballs. Once meatballs are all browned, return all of the meatballs to the cooker.

Pour pasta sauce, 1/3 cup beef broth and sugar over meatballs in the pressure cooker and securely lock the lid. Set for 8 minutes on HIGH.

Let the pressure release naturally 10 minutes before performing quick release for remaining pressure. Set cooker to LOW or “warm” and serve right out of pot.
