  6. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL , then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  7. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 7 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, then quick-release the pressure.
  9. Divide rice amongst serving bowls. Top with meatballs.
  10. Add the snow peas and edamame to the pot and toss to coat. Close the pot and allow the residual heat to cook the vegetables, about 3 minutes.
  11. (Optional) In a small bowl mix together 1/4 cup of pot liquid and cornstarch. Stir into the pot until thickened.
