  1. Combine the ground meat and spices together in a bowl and mix well.

  2. Use a 1-tablespoon cookie dough scoop to form meatballs.

  3. Place meatballs in the stainless steel insert of the Instant Pot and add 1 cup water or bone broth.

  4. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, checking that the seal is in place and the vent is closed. Press the "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" button and adjust the time to 12 minutes on high pressure.
