TOTAL TIME: 25 minutes

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)
DIRECTIONS:

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 about 2 minutes until no longer sticks, 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.
