Instant Pot Beef Ragu Recipe

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!

This Beef Ragú recipe gives you “simmered all day” flavor in about an hour, thanks to the use of an Instant Pot. No need to boil noodles separately. A can of chopped tomatoes and their juices have just the right amount of liquid to cook the pasta. This fast and simple dinner dish tastes love you spent hours making dinner.
