Ingredients

For the Chicken Meatballs

For the Cabbage

Instructions

For the meatballs

  • Mix all ingredients and refrigerate for 30 minutes if possible. (Of course I often skip this step).

To Assemble

  • In the inner liner of your Instant Pot or pressure cooker, lay half the roughly chopped cabbage.
  • Using a small scooper, scoop up half the chicken into small to medium size meatballs and place over the cabbage.
  • Follow with the remaining cabbage and chicken.
  • Pour over the milk, place butter pats here and there, sprinkle salt and pepper.
  • Close and cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. Quickly release pressure when done.
  • Serve the meatballs on top of the cabbage.

Notes

  • You can definitely substitute ground beef or pork for the chicken, just check internal temperatures to ensure they're cooked through. 
  • You can also broil or air-fry the bratwurst meatballs at the end for a browner look
