How to Make Instant Pot Ground Beef and Potatoes
It’s really easy to make this dish! You only need a handful of simple ingredients to enjoy a delicious meal in a flash. It may not be the “prettiest” meal, but it sure is tasty!
Ingredients You’ll Need:
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3 cups frozen diced hash brown potatoes
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 tsp Montreal steak seasoning (or other steak seasoning of choice)
- 2 cups homemade cream of chicken soup (or you can use canned if you prefer)
How to Make It:
(Full printable recipe is available below)
Brown the beef. First, you’ll use the Saute setting on the Instant Pot to brown the ground beef, breaking it apart as it cooks. Drain any excess grease.
Add potatoes. Next, you’ll add the potatoes on top of the beef, then pour broth on top and sprinkle in the steak seasoning.
Pressure cook. Close the lid and set the vent to the sealed position. Select a cook time of 4 minutes. When the cook time is complete, allow a 5 minute natural release, followed by a quick release of pressure.
Make it cheesy. Last, you’ll stir in the cream of chicken soup and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese until melted.
Give it a taste and add some salt and pepper if needed.
Sprinkle the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese on top and let it melt, then serve!
Notes and Adaptations:
- I like to use homemade cream of chicken soup (you can also make gluten-free cream of chicken soup if needed), but you can also use a can of condensed cream of chicken soup mixed with 1 can of water.
- You can add some frozen veggies in if you want to round out the meal!
- 1 lb ground beef
- 3 cups diced frozen hash browns
- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
- 2 cups homemade cream of chicken soup (or 1 can cream of chicken soup + 1 can water)
- 2 cups shredded cheese, divided (I used Colby Jack)
- In the insert pot of the Instant Pot, brown the ground beef using the Saute function. Break apart the beef as it cooks, crumbling it.
- Once beef is browned, press Cancel to turn off the Saute function and drain any excess grease. Add hash browns, beef broth, and steak seasoning.
- Close lid and set the vent to the sealed position. Select a cook time of 4 minutes at high pressure.
- When the cook time is complete, allow a 5 minute natural release of pressure, followed by a quick release of remaining pressure. Press Cancel to turn off the Instant Pot.
- Remove lid and stir in the cream of chicken soup and 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese, stirring to combine and allowing cheese to melt. Add salt and pepper to taste, if needed.
- Sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese on top and place lid on top, allowing the steam to melt the cheese.
- Remove lid and serve!
- Feel free to use more cheese if desired.
- If you don't want to use homemade cream of chicken soup, you can use a can of condensed soup mixed with a can of water.
