Instant Pot Meatloaf & Potatoes

I am not a big meatloaf fan. I know it is “comfort” food for some, for me, I just feel I make much better items, that meatloaf never interests me. Well, my older son asked about meatloaf and wanted to try it, since it has been years since we’ve had it and he didn’t remember. Ok, I’ll make it. I wanted to try it in the Instant Pot anyway and try making potatoes and meatloaf at the same time.

The Instant Pot worked GREAT for cooking both a the same time. Huge timesaver and dishes saver when it comes to a dish like this. I decided to whip/mash my potatoes. Seriously, I serve whole potatoes, my kids won’t eat them. I mash them up, and there are none left. Arg! Even when I explain they are the EXACT same thing, doesn’t seem to matter. Whatever…

I am still not a huge meatloaf fan. But this was a great dish to make in the Instant Pot because you can make your sides at the same time. I used ground chicken, but use any mix of ground meats you’d like.

All the Ingredients are approximate – you know me, I don’t really measure! ha! Put in as many oats/bread crumbs until it looks right to you!

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs ground meat – I used chicken. A mix of meats would be great!
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese – or an Italian cheese mix
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan
  • 1/2 – 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 – 1 cup oats
  • garlic – to taste
  • 1 tbsp Montreal Steak seasoning – or salt and pepper
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • potatoes, carrots, etc.

Sauce:

  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 tbsp dry mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

 

Directions:

In a large bowl, mix your ground meat, mozzarella, parmesan, bread crumbs, Worcestershire, eggs, oats, garlic, and steak seasoning together until well mixed. I just add bread crumbs and oats until the mixture looks right! Spray a sheet of foil with some cooking spray and form your meat into a loaf.

In a small bowl, mix together your sauce ingredients

Place your carrots, potatoes, etc. in the bottom of your instant pot. Pour in your water or beef broth. Place the rack on top of the potatoes.

Place your meatloaf in on the rack

Pour the Sauce over your meatloaf

Put the lid on, be sure your vent is set to seal and Place your Pressure cooker on manual for 25 minutes

When done, allow to naturally depressurize for 10 minutes

Release the rest of the pressure and open. This is what mine looked like when I opened it:

Remove your meatloaf, slice and serve!

You can also mash your potatoes right in the pot if your kids are picky like mine! They taste FANTASTIC cooked in the beef broth!
