8 Easy Instant Pot Ground Beef Recipes
It doesn't get easier than a good Instant Pot ground beef recipe. From new twists on time-honored Italian classics (have you tried Instant Pot Lasagna or Instant Pot Spaghetti and Meatballs with Red Wine?!) to modern recipes that take full advantage of the kitchen gadget's crazy speed (we're looking at you, Instant Pot Two-Minute Taco Soup), you're sure to find a new favorite in our collection of Instant Pot ground beef recipes.
Instant Pot Beef and Bean Chili
Using the flavor concentrating magic of the Instant Pot, we reach next-day level of delicious chili deliciousness in under an hour with this bold and meaty Beef and Bean Chili. Although optional, simmering beef bones in the chili makes it extra rich, and we’d highly recommend trying it. If you ask your butcher for some spare beef bones when you go to pick up stew meat, they will likely be more than happy to help you out. We like to serve such a robustly savory chili with bright toppers like sour cream, fresh cilantro, fresh jalapeño, and a sprinkle of sharp cheddar, but feel free to dress your bowl up however you like. Finely chopped onion and some avocado wedges would also be welcome here.
Spaghetti and Meatballs with Red Wine
Instant Pot Creamy Baked Ziti
All the heartiness of baked ziti just got easier, thanks to the Instant Pot. Despite coming together in half an hour, this dish is creamy, meaty, and, most importantly, tastes like it’s been simmering all day long. Do not stir—keep the tomatoes and pasta as far from touching the bottom of the Instant Pot as possible.

Instant Pot Keto Bolognese
This is the perfect recipe for when you want a comfort meal, but don’t have all day to prepare one. The Instant Pot gives it that cooked-all-day feel, with tender, satisfying meats and rich, but not too thick sauce. Taking out the traditional sugar and carrots makes this keto-approved, but the tomatoes make up for the lack in natural sweetness.
