  7. If you have a pressure cooker like the Power Pressure Cooker XL like I have or the Instant Pot, you can make this recipe in there as well. Simply mix the porcupine meatballs the same. Then pour a little of the sauce in the bottom of the cooker. Place the meatballs in the cooker and then cover with the rest of the sauce. Hit the meat button and then adjust the time to 25 min.
