CAN YOU REALLY COOK GROUND BEEF IN AN INSTANT POT:
Yes! I know some people are skeptical about using the Instant Pot to brown ground beef, but you absolutely can. It’s so easy to do too.
Just select the saute mode on your Instant Pot after you add the ground beef and chopped onions. And, depending on what Instant Pot you have, you may be able to select between 3 saute options. According to the Instant Pot website, for the Instant Pot IP-LUX60 you can select between Normal (160 degrees Celsius), More (170 degrees) and Less (105 degrees).
You absolutely do not need to cook this Instant Pot ground beef in an Instant Pot with those options, however it is nice to know if you have that model you have a bit of extra control.
We use the 8 quart duo, and just the regular saute mode. It may require a little extra watching, but still so much easier than on the stove top.
MAKE BEEF AND POTATO HASH IN A SNAP!
I’m not kidding when I tell you that this Instant Pot beef hash is the easiest meal to make. It’s the perfect back pocket meal for when you just don’t know what to make for dinner and need to get dinner on the table fast.
Start by chopping your onion. Then peel and cube your potatoes and set them aside. After your vegetables are cut, add the onion and the ground beef to the inner pot of the Instant Pot.
Cook the meat and onions on saute mode until the meat is brown. Once the meet is brown, add the potatoes, salt, pepper, and beef broth. Stir the ingredients to combine them well.
Then put the lid on the Instant Pot and make sure the pressure valve is set to sealing. Then set the cooking time to 4 minutes on manual high pressure.
After 4 minutes, do a quick pressure release and serve. Garnish with fresh parsley if you’re feeling fancy.
And that’s all there is to this easy beef and potato hash before you have dinner done.
Of course for us, this dinner isn’t done without a dollop of ketchup. And a side of silly conversation, of course.
