Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 4 minutes.

When the Instant Pot turned off, I immediately turned the steam release handle to the venting position and performed a quick release.

Then I removed the lid from the pot and stirred the contents well.

I gotta be honest. Mine just tasted like ketchup. Idk what I expected. I even used beef broth. Think it needs something else. Not a fan sorry.

Dumb question alert! I’ve already cooked the hamburger and onion, and froze them, in hopes that your answer is “yes”. Can I mix the ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, salt, pepper and brown sugar together, and freeze it for later? We’re taking our IP “camping” with us, and I’d like to know if I could make this recipe out there. Thanks in advance

Hi Rhonda, There are no dumb questions! I love your idea for camping. Thaw everything out and then carry on with the recipe. It may take a bit longer to come to pressure because Pot not heated yet but I think it will work out fine. If you try it let us know how it goes! Enjoy, Kathleen

I just made this recipe and I was amazed by how great it was! Definitely going to be one of my go to recipes. So easy and the only tweak I made was using rotini pasta and used 2 cups of mozzarella and 1.5 cup of cheddar cheese. Can never have too much cheese for me. Thanks so much for this delicious recipe!!!
