  3. In the same pan, add three tbsp coconut oil and sauté onions and 2 tbsp dill until soft. 
  4. Add the cassava flour and whisk constantly to form a roux.

  6. Add meatballs back to the pot. Add potatoes in the Instant Pot with salt and 2 tbsp dill. 
  7. Set pot to ‘Meat’ or ‘Manual’ for 7 minutes on high pressure. Let pressure release naturally. 
  8. Open the pot and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
