Instapot Recipes: Moroccan Spiced Meatball Stew

As much as I love homemade meatballs, frozen meatballs have become a staple in our house.  For quick dinners, meatballs  have so much versatility. From subs to soups and stews, meatballs can be used for so much more than sitting atop a big plate of spaghetti.

Since the meatballs can be placed in the Instapot/electric pressure cooker frozen, they are perfect for quick meals. For this particular recipe, the meatballs cook in a north African inspired sauce of tomatoes, warm spices, lemon, and olives.  Granted, these meatballs would be great in a sub, but we love them served in their sauce over a bed of egg noodles.
