I tried my bolognese sauce recipe in the new Express Crock Programmable Multi-Cooker to see if I could save time and create fewer dirty dishes.
This Braised Asian Meatballs and Cabbage dinner is the epitome of quick. You can pull it together in just 15 or 20 minutes with only a handful of dirty dishes left for you when you’re done.
All it took was a couple of recent trips to Ikea and reading the book A Man Called Ove (pronounced Oovay) for me to crave some good ol’ Swedish meatballs! Now, I don’t think I’ve ever met a meatball I didn’t like, and this recipe below is absolutely no exception. My family devoured this one-dish dinner, and it even had my 9-year-old asking for thirds.

I’m excited to share a yummy new recipe with you today – Japanese Meatball & Ramen Bowls! It’s a dish that I first had thanks to one of my Blue Apron boxes a few months ago, and it was a BIG hit with my whole family.
Tacos are a big favorite at my house, so I love it when I can cut the meat with a can of beans and make it last longer. But what’s better (I’ve learned) is adding in some mushrooms in addition to the beans to stretch things even further.
