These beefy meatballs are cooked in a mushroom gravy and lightened up by using half ground turkey and half lean ground beef. I made these in my Instant Pot (a multi-cooker that does the job of a slow cooker, electric pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, sauté/browning pan, and warming pot all in one) for a meal that took less than thirty minutes to make, but have also included stove top and slow cooker directions.
For anyone wondering, I have the 6 Quart Hamilton Beach Set ‘n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker (affil link). I love it because you can adjust the time you want it to cook, and it automatically turns to warm when it’s done. It also has a probe for meat that automatically shuts off when done. I hated my old crock pot, it burnt everything and my food had a weird taste. This slow cooker is so great, I actually own several!

I’ve been dying to make these meatballs which I adapted from my Salisbury Steak recipe. They are wonderful served over cauliflower mash as pictured here or why not try them over skinny garlic mashed potatoes.

These beefy meatballs are cooked in a mushroom gravy and lightened up by using half ground turkey and half lean ground beef. Kid-friendly, comforting and delicious!

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup minced onions
  • 1/2 lb 93% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb 93% lean ground turkey
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste, divided
  • kosher salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • 1 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp mustard powder
  • 5 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1 1/4 cup reduced sodium beef broth
  • chopped parsley for garnish, optional

Instructions

  • Finely chop 1 oz of the mushrooms into small pieces and set aside. Heat the Instant Pot (or a large nonstick pot on medium-high) on Sauté add 1 tsp oil and onions and cook until golden brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Divide onions in two.
  • In a large bowl, combine half of the sautéed onions with the ground beef, ground turkey, chopped mushroom, bread crumbs, egg, 1 tbsp tomato paste, 1/4 cup of the beef broth, 3/4 tsp salt and black pepper.
  • In a small bowl, blend flour and 1 cup broth until smooth. Mix in remaining onions, remaining 1 tbsp tomato paste, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and mustard powder.
  • Gently shape into 20 small meatballs.
  • Heat the Instant Pot (or non-stick pot) back on saute, add remaining teaspoon of oil and brown the meatballs (in batches so you don't overcrowd the pot) about 2 minutes until no longer sticks (if it doesn't turn, it's not ready yet), turn and brown an additional 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms, 1/8 teaspoon salt and black pepper and pour the sauce over the meatballs, cover and cook on high pressure 10 minutes (20 minutes in a regular pot). Let the pressure release on it’s own. Garnish with parsley.
  • Slow Cooker Directions: Saute meatballs in a skillet, transfer to slow cooker with mushrooms, salt and pepper and pour sauce over. Cover and cook low 6 to 8 hours, until tender.
