How to Cook Ground Beef in the Instant Pot – Perfect for Beginners!

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Well now you know! If you are just starting off with your Instant Pot, this is one of the easiest things you can make in your pot! Then just freeze whatever meat you don’t use, and you are set!

The only thing is, I cooked meat that was frozen. That way it was able to stay on the trivet without falling through the cracks and no, I haven’t cooked it with thawed meat yet!

put your trivet in the Instant Pot. Pour in one cup of water. put your frozen beef on top of the trivet. put the lid on and turn the knob to sealing.
Push the Manual Button, or pressure cook button and set the time for 25 minutes.
Once the timer is done, let it release on it’s own for 10-15 minutes. Turn the knob to let any more steam out.
Take your meat out of the Instant Pot and put in a bowl. cut or chop the meat up.

You can freeze the meat in freezer bags for up to 3 months in your freezer.

This is the Taco Soup I made:
– I just threw everything in the Instant pot and cooked it for 5 minutes on manual. I used my already browned beef and just cooked my onions with the rest of the soup instead of browning it.
