Instant pot meatloaf

I mean, did you really need me to say anything more than Instant pot meatloaf?


This flavorful, juicy Instant Pot Meatloaf is one of my family’s favorite easy instant pot dinners! The meatloaf is made with ground beef (or a combination of ground beef and ground turkey), breadcrumbs, spices, and eggs, and I usually add potatoes to the bottom of the instant pot to make mashed potatoes at the same time, for an all-in-one meal!

Add all of the meatloaf ingredients to a bowl and mix everything to combine. Be careful not to over-mix the meat, which can result in a tougher loaf. (Source: tastesbetterfromscratch.com One of the things I love is that you can prepare the meatloaf in advance and refrigerate it until you’re ready to cook dinner. Be sure to cover it well with plastic wrap, or store it in an air-tight container. The meatloaf sauce can also be made ahead of time and stored in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.

When the meatloaf is finished cooking, carefully pull up on the sides of the aluminum foil to remove it from the pot. (Source: tastesbetterfromscratch.com While the meatloaf is cooking, mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. You may choose to warm the sauce in the microwave for serving.

Cut the potatoes into quarters and add them to the bottom of the instant pot along with water and salt. Place a wire trivet on top of the potatoes. Set the meatloaf on top of the potatoes. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. When the timer beeps allow the pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes.

Remove the meatloaf and wire trivet. Add milk, butter, sour cream, bouillon paste and salt and pepper to the potatoes and mash them to your desired consistency. Be careful not to over-mash the potatoes because the more you mix them, the more likely they are to get gluey and starchy. (Source: tastesbetterfromscratch.com You can use any type of ground meat to make meatloaf, including ground beef, ground turkey, and ground pork. High fat meat, like ground chuck, makes a more tender meatloaf. I like a blend of half ground beef and half ground turkey or pork, but you can use 100% ground beef or other ground meat if you’d like.

If you want to double check the temperature, an instant read thermometer should register about 160 degrees at the center of the meatloaf. If for some reason the meatloaf has not cooked to your liking you can finish cooking it in the oven at 375 degrees.

Yes, you can use this same recipe to make the meatloaf in your slow cooker or crock pot. Line the bottom of your slow cooker with tinfoil and place the meatloaf on top. Add the sauce on top, reserving some of it for after it’s cooked, if you’d like. (Source: tastesbetterfromscratch.com Tent the meatloaf with foil and allow it to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving. Spoon the remaining sauce on top. (Source:tastesbetterfromscratch.com tCook on LOW for 6 hours, or HIGH for 3 hours or until an instant-read thermometer reaches 160 degrees F in the center of the meatloaf. (Source:astesbetterfromscratch.com taIf you want to try cooking potatoes in the slow cooker at the same time as the meatloaf (I haven’t tried this myself, but think it will work), put the meatloaf in foil to separate it from the potatoes. Cut the potatoes into chunks and add to the slow cooker with 1 cup of vegetable or chicken broth, and salt. Cook for 6 hours on LOW or 3 hours on HIGH. Make the mashed potatoes according to recipe.
