These little gadgets make cooking dinner an absolute breeze. 

They’re insanely convenient and so easy to use that anyone could cook with them, regardless of whether they’ve ever cooked a meal in their lives. 

Plus, you can make such a variety of things with them. Take this list, for example.

When it comes to Instant Pot ground beef recipes, you can make anything from Sloppy Joes and cheeseburger macaroni to beef chili and spaghetti.

Let’s check them out!

1. Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff

This is the same creamy, herby stovetop beef stroganoff that you know and love.

The only difference is that you’ll make this one in the Instant Pot instead of on the stove. 

The noodles are just as tender; the beef is just as succulent; the overall dish is just as flavorful.

Garnish it with some fresh parsley or chives, and you’re good to go. 

2. Cheesy Beef Enchilada Pasta

You’d think something with this many ingredients would leave you with a ton of cleanup, but you’d be wrong.

You can make this cheesy enchilada pasta in just one pot. 

With cheese, enchilada sauce, black beans, corn, and more, it has a distinctly southwestern flair, but if you’re already a fan of enchiladas, you’ll love this 30-minute pasta. 

3. Instant Pot Chili Mac

For something that takes less than 20 minutes from start to finish, Instant Pot chili mac is a surprisingly tasty and filling meal. 

Enter your email below & we'll send it straight to your inbox.

It’s spicy, cheesy, and overflowing with flavorful macaroni noodles and lean ground beef.

You’ll get notes of garlic, onions, peppers, cumin, and more, and every bite is delicious. 

4. Instant Pot Porcupine Meatballs

Fortunately, you won’t actually make these porcupine meatballs with porcupine meat. I’m not even sure that would be legal! 

Instead, you’ll make them with ground beef, onions, garlic, tomato sauce, water, Worcestershire sauce, olive oil, rice, salt, and pepper. 

They’re called porcupine meatballs because the rice sticks out of them, making them look spiny.

If you like meatballs with plenty of tomato and garlic flavor, these will be a hit.

5. Instant Pot Sloppy Joes

Seriously, why make Sloppy Joes with that store-bought canned mix when you can whip it up from scratch in 30 minutes or less with fresh ingredients? 

Simply start by cooking your onions, peppers, beef, and garlic in the pot, then add everything else and let the Instant Pot do its thing.

You can toast your buns while it’s cooking. 

It doesn’t get much easier or yummier than that. 

6. Instant Pot Hamburger Soup

With chunks of juicy ground beef, tender veggies like onions, potatoes, celery, and tomatoes, and plenty of herbs and seasonings, this hamburger soup is ideal for cold winter nights. 

It’s well seasoned and perfect for sopping up with slices of bread, as well. 

7. Instant Pot Cheesy Hamburger Potato Casserole

Hamburger potato casserole is like steak and potatoes’ less expensive cousin, and believe it or not, it tastes just as good! 

The potatoes are covered in cheese, garlic, and scallions (not in the recipe, but I use them, anyway). 

And the Instant Pot does a fantastic job on the beef, making it juicy and melt-in-your-mouth tasty. 

8. Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni

I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone who didn’t enjoy a steaming plate of cheeseburger macaroni.

With your Instant Pot, you can make it entirely from scratch in just 25 minutes! 

I’m not even sure that you can make the boxed Hamburger Helper kind that quickly! 

Plus, when you make it yourself, you can use whatever cheese you like best and tweak the spice ratio to suit your tastes. 

9. Keto Low Carb Beef Chili – Instant Pot or Crock Pot Recipe

This is your standard Crockpot chili, only it’s low-carb and keto-friendly, so just about anyone can enjoy it, no matter their dietary restrictions. 

It has a bit of heat to it, thanks to the green chiles, chili powder, and fire-roasted tomatoes, and the beef, tomato paste, onions, and garlic give it tons of flavor. 

There are no beans in this chili, which is part of the reason it’s so keto-friendly, but feel free to add them if you want. 

10. Instant Pot Ground Beef Lazy Lasagna

I like anything with the word “lazy” in the recipe title, and this lazy lasagna certainly lives up to its name.

It takes only 34 minutes to make, and very little of that time is hands-on. 

It has a massive amount of garlic flavor and features all your favorite Italian ingredients. It’s like heading to your favorite Italian restaurant, only cheaper. 

11. Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers

That’s right! You can even make stuffed peppers in your Instant Pot! How crazy is that?! 

They have all the same ingredients – beef, rice, cheese, tomatoes, etc. – but are much easier to make.

From start to finish, you shouldn’t have to spend more than 35 minutes on them.

12.  Instant Pot Taco Soup

If you like thick, chunky soups with lots of flavor and a bit of spice, then taco soup is the dish for you.

It has practically everything you could want in a heaping plate of taco salad, but it’s soup. 

There’s ground beef, onions, garlic, corn, black beans, chili beans, diced tomatoes, green chiles, chili powder, cumin, and whatever toppings you like best. 

Pile enough chips, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and other things on top, and it’ll be hard to tell that it’s not taco salad.  

13.  Instant Pot Cabbage Rolls

Made with homemade tomato sauce, cabbage, rice, beef, and plenty of other tasty things, these cabbage rolls are the ultimate in warm, delicious comfort food, assuming you like cabbage, of course. 

These take a little more effort than some of the other recipes on this list, but one bite of that super-stuffed, overflowing filling, and you’ll know it was all worth it in the end. 

14.  Instant Pot Beef and Broccoli with Rice

This isn’t your typical beef and broccoli takeout dish, but you’ll love it, anyway.

The stir-fry steak strips are unbelievably good, and the fresh ginger gives the whole thing a tiny bit of kick. 

The broccoli is well cooked but retains some crunchiness, and the rice is fragrant and flavorful.

Add a few sesame seeds as a garnish, and watch as this disappears within mere moments. 

15.  Easy One-Pot Ravioli Soup

Ravioli soup is exactly what it claims to be – mini-ravioli swimming in a tomato-based soup with lean ground beef, onions, and cheese. 

It tastes like a genuine Italian classic, but it’s less heavy and hard on the stomach than traditional ravioli.

Plus, there’s nothing quite like dipping garlic breadsticks into the soup.

16.  Instant Pot Pasta e Fagioli

Pasta e Fagioli is another Italian soup that you can whip up in the Instant Pot almost as easily as you can heat it up from a can.

It’s full of chunky, hearty ingredients and tastes amazing. 

17.  Easy Beef Egg Roll in a Bowl 

This dish is basically a deconstructed egg roll, but egg roll in a bowl sounds much better; it just rolls right off the tongue. 

It has all the ingredients that make up a delicious egg roll – coleslaw mix, beef, garlic, ginger, red pepper, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and more. 

The only thing it’s missing is the crispy egg roll wrapper, but hey, that means fewer carbs, so it’s a win-win. 

18.  10-Minute Instant Pot Spaghetti

Instant Pot spaghetti is one of the easiest ways to make spaghetti, and I should know because I make a lot of spaghetti. 

It takes 5 minutes of prep work, 5 minutes to cook, and uses fewer than 10 ingredients. Can you make spaghetti any quicker or easier than that? 

No, really, can you? Because if so, I’d love that recipe, too!

19.  Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

This Philly cheesesteak pasta is a lot like beef stroganoff, but it has the distinct ingredients and flavors that make up a Philly cheesesteak.

There are quite a few ingredients on this list, but don’t let that make you nervous.

Most of them are spices or condiments, and you can have this ready to go in less than 30 minutes. 

20.  Easy Instant Pot Bolognese

While this bolognese takes about 20 minutes to fix, it’s almost as simple as the spaghetti above. 

All you’ll need is extra-lean ground beef, onions, celery, carrots, garlic, salt, pepper, red wine, marinara sauce, and spaghetti. 

Once it’s ready, you can add parsley and grated parmesan for extra flavor, but all in all, this is one straightforward dish to make.

21.  Picadillo

If you’re a meat lover, Picadillo is the dinner dish for you. It’s just a big plate of meat. There’s ground beef and ground turkey. 

Then, there’s a bit of sauce, some tomatoes, olives, and spices, and that’s it. Like I said – a big plate of meat, and I’m not complaining.

22.  Instant Pot Burrito Bowls

If you’re looking for a way to enjoy all the yumminess of burritos without all the carbs, give these Instant Pot burrito bowls a try. 

They aren’t keto-friendly, but they do have far fewer carbs than a traditional burrito, and you’ll still get the meat, beans, cheese, salsa, corn, rice, etc.

You can leave out the rice to make them even more low-carb. Either way, it’s a tasty dinner that the whole family will enjoy. 

23.  Instant Pot Meatloaf and Potatoes

Few things are more comforting and soulful than rich, hearty meatloaf and tender potatoes.

And with the Instant Pot, you can cook them both in practically no time at all. 

It’s succulent, packed with protein, and a down-home meal that’ll instantly transport you back to your mom’s kitchen.

There isn’t anything bad you can say about that.
