These teriyaki turkey meatballs are my favorite meatballs I’ve ever made.  They’re a little sweet, a little savory, and the texture is so soft.  I decided to sauté them in my Instant Pot before I pressure cooked them to give a nice sear on the outside.  While those were sautéing, I made a sweet teriyaki sauce to pour over the meatballs before I pressure cooked them.  I ate these meatballs with roasted broccoli but they’d also be good with pasta, gnocchi, rice, etc.  They really couldn’t be easier: one bowl, 10 minutes in your Instant Pot, and dinner is on the table.  Check out these Ground Turkey Teriyaki bowls too!
