Instant Pot Tikka Masala Beef Meatballs


  • 2 lbs Laura's Lean Ground Beef
  • 2 Eggs (whisked)
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 1/2 tsps Garam masala
  • 1 tsp Cumin
  • 2 tsps Crushed garlic
  • 30 ozs Tikka masala sauce (store bought)
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Pepper
  • 2 tbsps Avocado oil
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder


1. Combine the meat, bread crumbs, eggs, and seasonings together in a medium bowl. Form into 1 inch sized balls. Coat 6 quart instant pot with 1-2 tbs avocado oil and place meatballs in the instant pot (it's okay if they're not in a single layer) Cover with Tikka Masala Sauce. Cook on high pressure for 12 minutes. Release pressure.

*option to add 1/2 cup very finely chopped onions (my kids don’t like them so I usually just leave them out or shred the onions really finely!) 

To make the Beef Masala Bowls:

1. 2 sweet potatoes, skin peeled and diced. Toss sweet potatoes in 2 tbsp avocado oil, pinch of sea salt, and pepper, a little cumin and garlic. Roast at 425 degrees for 25 minutes.

2. Prepare any choice of rice (I often use the microwaveable organic brown rice or quinoa pouches or a mix of brown rice and cauliflower rice!) Let’s keep this simple!Assemble roasted sweet potatoes, choice of rice, and 3-4 meatballs with sauce in a bowl! Enjoy!
