Quick and Easy Instant Pot Meatloaf Delight
- 2 pounds ground beef
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs
- ½ cup diced onion
- ½ apple – peeled cored, and diced
- 1 egg
- 2 teaspoons garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
- ⅓ cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- To create a mouthwatering meatloaf, simply follow these straightforward instructions. Start by combining ground beef, bread crumbs, onion, apple, egg, garlic powder, salt, and pepper in a spacious bowl until all the ingredients are evenly mixed. Next, shape the beef mixture into a loaf shape and carefully place it on a generously sized piece of aluminum foil. This will serve as your impromptu loaf pan by neatly folding the foil around the edges for support.
- To begin, pour half a cup of water into your multi-functional pressure cooker, like an Instant Pot. Make sure to insert the steam rack with the handles facing upwards. Carefully place the meatloaf on top of the rack. Close and lock the lid, ensuring that the vent is sealed. For specific instructions, consult your manufacturer's guidelines and select high pressure, setting the timer for 25 minutes. Remember to allow approximately 10 to 15 minutes for the pressure to build.
- While the meatloaf is cooking, preheat your oven’s broiler and position an oven rack about 6 inches away from the heat source. After releasing the pressure from the cooker using the quick-release method (typically taking around 5 minutes), unlock and remove the lid. Next, carefully transfer the meatloaf – still on its rack – to a baking sheet. Finally, place it under the broiler in the oven until it achieves an appealing golden-brown color, which should take approximately 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, a delicious topping can be prepared for the meatloaf. Begin by combining ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar in a small bowl. Once the meatloaf has been broiled to perfection, evenly brush this flavorful mixture over the top. Then return the meatloaf to the broiler and continue broiling until the topping caramelizes just right, typically taking about 1 to 2 minutes.
- And there it is—a mouthwatering meatloaf cooked to perfection in the Instant Pot. The tantalizing caramelized topping adds a delightful touch. Pair this savory dish with your favorite sides for a truly satisfying meal.
