  1. This recipe might be easier to use if you told us which ingredients are the sauce ingredients, and which ingredients are for the meatballs.

  2. Hi Corrie, I'm looking for an instant pot recipe for porcupine meatballs using brown rice. That's how I always make them in the oven. Not sure how much cooking time to add for Gourmia express pot /instant pot. Thanks.
