Sweet + Tangy Meatball Instructions:
Meatballs yield best results when cooked from frozen. Cook times may vary with some oven and kitchen temperatures. Be sure to keep an eye on your meal and prepare food to proper cook temperatures. Meatballs should come to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
OVEN (recommended) –
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, spray with nonstick cooking spray and place meatballs evenly spaced on the tray. Bake for 20 minutes, pouring the meatball sauce on each meatball halfway through and cook until golden brown and sauce is sticky and glazed all over the meatballs. Serve with your favorite mashed potatoes, roasted green beans or your favorite vegetable side dish, and a thick slice of garlic bread!
INSTANT POT –
To prevent meatballs from sticking add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to the bottom of your Instant Pot. Add 1/4 cup water to your Instant Pot Place meatballs evenly spaced and put the lid on and seal. Add meatball sauce to the tops of each meatball to glaze. Set to High Pressure for 7 minutes. When complete, let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then quick release. Serve with your favorite mashed potatoes, roasted green beans or your favorite vegetable side dish, and a thick slice of garlic bread!
Add 1 Tablespoon of olive oil to a pan and heat to medium-high heat. Sear meatballs on all sides in the pan and then reduce temperature to low-medium.
Pro-tip: add a few tablespoons of water and set a lid over the pan to allow meatballs to steam and retain their moisture while coming to internal temperature of 165 degrees.
