Easy Beef Meatballs and Sauce with Instant Pot

The instant pot has the saute feature, which is interesting when it comes to meatballs – will it puree them down to sauce or keep meatballs intact?

We made one of our first keto ground beef recipes with lean 85/15 beef and browned half the meatballs to see if that would make a difference. It didn't.

Things to watch out for: use almond flour to keep it keto, and watch the carbs in the marinara sauce, since that is an ingredient in this recipe.

You can make these keto beef meatballs with 5 minutes prep and 10 minutes cook time, making it one of the fastest preparations with the instant pot.

This stew-like recipe takes about an hour from start to finish, but I'd like to share one secret: it tastes twice as yummy if you let it sit in the fridge overnight. Super delish if you do that.

You need chili pepper, some fish sauce, some salsa, and the brisket/short ribs/chuck roast among other things.

Using the keto instant pot will reduce the time it normally takes to make mexican beef, so review this recipe and see if it becomes a keeper.

This delightful corned beef and cabbage recipe really grows on you, and if you enjoy it a few times, it may become one of your all-time favorites.

I know more than a few German and Austrian families that say this is their family favorite, and it may not look as succulent dripping with flavor like the bourguignon, but it is every bit as tasty.

It does take a good 90 minutes to complete the two part recipe (meat and then vegetables), but if you plan right, this can be the meal that everyone savours the most.

This cuban dish is most delightful if you use flank steak, since the added fat will really add to the keto fat content, and the meat itself is way more succulent when pressure cooked. Juicy and melt in your mouth is how this recipe turns out.

You'll need to forgo the recommended side dishes of rice, beans or plantains, since you want to keep the carbohydrates to a minimum.

Toppings to go enhance this dish include onions, jalapenos, sliced olives, avocado, and of course, a good squeeze of lime juice. All these together make the recipe sublime.

Beef Stew Keto Style With Instant Pot

keto instant pot recipes collection - beef stew.

This recipe avoids the potatoes and carrots to make a whole30 keto low carb beef stew that is gluten free. Try saying that 5 times fast.

Instead, it uses celery, rutabaga, mushrooms and summer squash to add body to the meat dish. You'll cook this one up to 30 minutes in the instant pot pressure cooker (cut cooking times by 1/3 when you set the instant pot on high and saute), so it takes a bit longer, but that turns the trimmed chuck roast into mouthwatering ecstacy.

Adding in red wine and balsamic can enhance the flavors of this stew in a big way. Feel free to try out those “additions” to this instant pot beef stew.

If you like coffee, you'll love this mocha rubbed pot roast creation. You simply prepare your coffee ground to fine, cover the beef cubes thoroughly. Create the sauce, drizzle it over top the mocha beef cubes, and set your instant pot to work on the meat/stew setting and let it go for 35 minutes.

Avoid the quick release, and instead release the pressure naturally (about 15 minutes) and your mocha pot roast will be ready to serve. You can reduce any remaining sauce down to a bouillon and drizzle it over the fork-separated beef cubes.

Enjoy with chilantro and other delightful toppings.
