Measure and prep all ingredients.
Prepare the meatballs. In a large mixing bowl, combine the ground beef, ground pork, grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, paprika, granulated garlic, onion powder, dried parsley, dried oregano, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, eggs and milk. Lightly mix the ingredients until evenly combined.
Form the mixture into 1½-inch meatballs.
Turn the Instant Pot to the sauté setting. Add the oil to the pot and once the pot is hot, sear the meatballs in batches.
Remove all of the meatballs and deglaze the pot with the broth. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
Turn off the sauté setting. Add half of the marinara sauce. Place the browned meatballs into the Instant Pot.
Top with the remaining marinara sauce and close the lid. Make sure the lid is set to sealing. Set the Instant Pot to manual high pressure and set the timer for 7 minutes. When the timer goes off, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, quick-release the pressure. Be careful not to stand over the Instant Pot while the pressure is being released as the steam is very hot.
Serve the meatballs and the sauce over pasta. Garnish with Parmesan cheese and finely chopped parsley. Serve and enjoy!
You can use store-bought or homemade marinara sauce. For homemade marinara, try our Italian marinara sauce or spicy marinara sauce recipe.
