These easy-to-make Pressure Cooker Sweet BBQ Meatballs are a popular, classic party appetizer made with only 3 ingredients.
Welch’s calls them Slam Dunk Meatballs, or you may know them as Grape Jelly BBQ meatballs. Traditionally these meatballs are cooked in the slow cooker, but I decided to speed things up and make them in the Insta Pot.
How to make Sweet BBQ Meatballs in an Instant Pot
An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create these delicious Sweet BBQ Meatballs!
Now instead of waiting over three hours and 30 minutes for them to cook, these Pressure Cooker Sweet BBQ Meatballs are ready to serve in about 25 minutes, and that includes the time it takes for the pressure cooker to come to pressure.
I bought my meatballs at Sam’s Club and thought they had a good flavor. I tested this recipe with the turkey meatballs from Costco, but they didn’t hold together very well and I didn’t like the flavor, so I wouldn’t recommend them.
Serve the meatballs with toothpicks and extra sauce on the side. I also made meatball sandwiches with leftover meatballs, and my kids loaded the sandwiches up with the extra sauce.
Here’s a quick video to show you just how easy these Pressure Cooker Sweet BBQ Meatballs are to make:
