This hearty tomato lamb meatball stew comes together in under an hour with the assistance of an InstantPot, and is paired with orzo and lots of parm!
I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Here in Michigan it was super windy all Sunday, with a wind advisory for pretty much the whole day. But we spent it cozied up inside making brunch with the hubby’s family, followed by an afternoon of lounging, movies, and Monopoly.

And on a cold and windy day like that, you neeeeed this stew! Even better is that it can be prepared in the Instant Pot in just 45 minutes! So let’s get into it.
The first step is to form the meatballs. I love the pork and lamb combo in these meatballs because the pork give a little it of fat to the meatballs, but the lamb gives you that classic stew flavor profile.
After you form the meatballs, it’s time to sauté them right in the Instant Pot! This is one of my favorite features of the InstantPot: being able to saute right in the pot before throwing in the rest of the ingredients allows for easier cleanup because you’re not sautéing in a separate pan that you have to clean. #winning!
From there, you work on the rest of the sauce full of carrots, onions, garlic and fire-roasted tomatoes before sealing the Instant Pot with the pressure cooker setting and letting those meatballs cook! I served this stew over orzo, but you could also do pasta, mashed potatoes, or even gnocchi!
Now it’s your turn: Tell me, would you make meatballs in the InstantPot (or have you before)? Share with me below!
