  • ⅓ cup of panko, Japanese breadcrumbs
  • ½ cup of sweet onion, minced finely
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp carrot minced finely
  • 2 tbsp celery minced finely
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley minced
  • 1 lb of lean ground beef
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Or use premade meatloaf ground beef from the grocery store
  • Vegetables:
  • 5-6 small red potatoes cleaned and halved
  • 1 medium carrot cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 cup water
  • Gravy
  • 2 tbsp. butter,
  • 2 tbsp. flour,
  • 2 cups of reserved liquid from the instant pot, add beef stock to make 2 cups
  • 1 beef bullion cube,
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasonings
  • pepper salt to taste.
Directions
  1. Meatloaf
  2. If using meatloaf pre-mix skip down to place in the pan
  3. Whisk together the milk and egg in a small bowl; add the Panko crumbs and set aside until all the milk has been absorbed.
  4. Meanwhile, mince the onion, garlic, carrot, celery, and parsley together in a food processor.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the Panko mixture, onion mixture, ground beef, salt, and black pepper, to taste.
  6. Mix together gently with just your fingertips.
  7. Once combined, form the mixture into a loaf. Place in a greased 6 “ baking pan or use an aluminum foil packet (see notes)
  8. Instant Pot
  9. Add the potatoes & carrots in the pot. Place the rack over the potatoes and carrots add 1 cup of water. Place the pan of meatloaf or packet of aluminum foil on top
  10. Cover with the lid and lock the pressure cooker making sure the pressure release valve is set to “sealing.”
  11. Select “Manual” and cook at High Pressure for 20 minutes. When done do a quick release. Once the pot has released the pressure, carefully open the lid.
  12. Confirm the meatloaf’s internal temperature is at least 160°F with a food thermometer.
  13. Serve with or without topping the meatloaf with barbeque sauce, tomato sauce glazes or gravy. I love the gravy made from the juices from the instant pot and meatloaf pan.
  14. Gravy Directions
  15. Turn instant pot to sauté when hot melt the butter stir in the flour cook for a minute add the liquid stirring while adding until all is incorporated. Add the beef bullion cube and seasonings. Stir to combine.
Notes
Instead of a baking pan place meatloaf on a sheet of aluminum foil making sure the meatloaf fits into your pressure cooker.
Fold the sheet of aluminum foil up and around the meatloaf to form a packet, leaving the top open slightly to release the steam.

Recipe type: main
Serves: serves 2-3
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 250 gm (½ lb) ground beef
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ tsp Aleppo Chili Pepper
  • ½ tbsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 large shallot, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth or stock
  • 398 ml ( 14 oz) can tomato sauce
  • 185 gm (approx. ½ box or 6 ½ oz) spaghetti
  • 1 bay leaf
Directions
  1. In a medium bowl mix together ground beef, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and Aleppo Chili Pepper. Turn the Instant Pot to sauté. When the Instant Pot shows HOT in the display adds the olive oil. Heat the oil until it simmers add the shallot and cook until translucent add the garlic and cook for another 30 seconds then add the ground beef mixture. Cook until the meat has browned.
  2. Once the beef has browned, turn the Instant Pot off. Pour half of the chicken stock over the meat and deglaze the pot by scrapping any tiny food particles adhering to the bottom of the pan. These delicious particles will add additional flavor to the meat. Add the rest of the chicken broth on top of the meat. Break the spaghetti to fit into the Instant Pot and lay them on top of the meat. Cover the spaghetti with the tomato sauce, add the bay leaf then close the lid turning the venting valve to sealing.
  3. Cook the spaghetti on high pressure using the manual function for 5 minutes (or half the time on the back from the box of noodles you are using). Once the pot has completed the cooking, let the pressure release naturally. Remove the lid and mix up the noodles, sauce, and meat. No need to strain any excess liquid. Serve hot and garnish with parmesan cheese and fresh herbs.
Notes
Aleppo <g class=If you do not have Aleppo Chili Pepper. It may be difficult to obtain now as it is grown in Syria. Because of the conflict in this area, they will not be exporting this spice for some time. However, you can make a close substitute by mixing 4 parts sweet Paprika with one part Cayenne and a tiny pinch of salt.-- If you really really must you can also use crushed red pepper.


As it was impossible to find just 250 grams of ground beef I bought Salisbury Steak Patties which came in the 250 grams size.
