Begin by finely chopping 1 oz of the mushrooms into small pieces. Set them aside.
Heat a skillet (or Instant Pot) on sauté mode over medium heat and add 1 tsp oil. Sauté onions until golden brown (about 4 to 5 minutes). Divide onions in half.
In a large bowl, combine half of the sautéed onions with ground beef, ground turkey, chopped mushrooms, breadcrumbs, beaten egg, 1 tbsp tomato paste, 1/4 cup beef broth, 3/4 tsp salt, and black pepper.
In a separate small bowl, mix flour and 1 cup broth until smooth. Add remaining onions, 1 tbsp tomato paste, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard powder.
Gently shape the mixture into 20 small meatballs.

Slow Cooker Method:
Sauté meatballs in a skillet with the remaining teaspoon of oil. Transfer to the slow cooker with mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Pour the sauce over. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, until tender.
