Tips For Making Instant Pot Ground Beef Recipes
Ground beef is fairly inexpensive and can stretch a long way. Hamburger meat also freezes well so I always keep a ready supply on hand.
Here are some tips to ensure your recipes turn out perfect every time.
Brown The Meat
Most recipes call on you to begin by browning the meat, and sometimes the veggies.
I love that I can do this right in my Instant Pot using the sauté function. There is no need to dirty another pan.
Quick-Cook Ground Beef
You can quickly cook 1-2 pounds of beef without sauteing.
Place the meat on a trivet and add 1 cup of water to the insert. Seal and cook at high pressure for 6 minutes followed by a 5-minute natural release, then quick release of pressure.
Open the lid and your meat will be tender and cooked through. Just break it apart into small pieces with a potato masher.
Cook Frozen Ground Beef
No need to panic if your ground beef is still frozen–you can cook frozen ground beef in the Instant Pot!
Follow the same steps as above and place the frozen meat onto the trivet in your Instant Pot. Seal and cook for 20 minutes.
Do a 5-minute natural release followed by a quick release of pressure, and the continue with your favorite recipe.
Drain The Fat
If your ground beef produces a lot of extra grease, you will want to drain it before continuing with the recipe.
Can I Use Other Ground Meats in These Instant Pot Hamburger Recipes?
Yes! You can substitute ground pork, ground turkey, ground chicken, or even ground venison!
For some of the Italian-style dishes, ground Italian sausage would work well, too.
