Simple Instant Pot Swedish Meatballs Recipe

As some of you might know from my previous posts, I LOVE my Instant potAnd after this simple Swedish meatballs recipe I am more in love than ever. Swedish Meatballs are a family favorite around here, and while the traditional recipes aren’t too hard, they require multiple pans and some time. But not any longer. Want to know how long it took me to make this? 15 minutes. No seriously, 15 minutes from start to finish. Can it get any cooler than that? I don’t think so. So grab your instant pot and let’s get started! Oh, do not forget my favorite instant pot dessert. Apples with ice cream.

I guess that is why I have so many easy meatloaf recipes on my site. I love this apricot meatloaf recipe because it pairs the sweet with the savory.

Healthy Tilapia Recipes in the Pressure Cooker

Do you come home or are you home and you realize you forgot about dinner. You realize you indeed are incharge of making it. You are like me and you buy stuff when it is on sale. You know that the ultimate list of frugal tips says buy low and stock up. You even know what to stock up on and when. If you do not read our stock up list to help you out. I even have tips of how to organize your stockpile.  I find that know how to save on fruits and vegetables saves me as much money as knowing when to buy meats.  That brings me to my Healthy Tilapia Recipes in the Pressure Cooker XL.

I saw a sale where it was buy one bag and then get one free. They were two pound bags and they were frozen. I paid $12.00 for the two bags. I knew I could get three meals out of the $12.00.

The items in this recipe are stables in my home. I always have garlic, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. The rest of the ingredients are optional. The tilapia fish is a mild fish so it will take on the flavor of what you add to it.

I made this recipe using foil but I could have just put the fish on the steamer basket if I wasn’t cooking the entire two pound bag. I usually do not cook that much but I made dinner for that night and then I want the rest of the fish for taco’s the next day for lunch.

Do you need a simple but tasty recipe for dinner that will only take you few minutes to make? Then save this healthy tilapia pressure cooker recipe!

I always thought that this was an Irish dish, the corned beef. It turns out it is an Irish American dish. The Irish Americans used corned beef instead of bacon when it is wasn’t available. I recently visited Ireland, and there wasn’t corned beef in abundance. You can see what I ate while there in my post best restaurants is in Ireland.
