Instant Pot Meatloaf

You want an easy and delicious dinner? My meatloaf in the instant pot is both. I love a meal that is quick, easy, and makes yummy leftovers.

The other day I cooked meatloaf and served it with homemade mashed potatoes and green beans. It was so good. The next day we had meatloaf sandwiches. I choose not to eat bread very often but this meatloaf on sourdough bread, OMGoodness, it was delish!

Please feel free to watch my video for step by step instructions on how to make it. I would love for you to leave me a comment. I would love to connect with you.

My Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe:

1 ½ lbs of ground beef
1 large chopped yellow onion
1 heaping ½ tsp of minced garlic
1 egg beaten
¼ cup of Italian bread crumbs
A few dashes of Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp of yellow mustard
A couple of dashes of pink Himalayan salt
Crushed black pepper (about ½ to 1 tsp)
Ketchup (however much you want to use on top of your meatloaf)


Put one cup of water into the Instant Pot and set on manual for 44 minutes.

Mix the meat with the chopped yellow onion, minced garlic, beaten egg, Italian bread crumbs, Worcestershire Sauce, yellow mustard, salt, black pepper, and ketchup.

Spray your oven proof baking dish with olive oil cooking spray. (I use a round 7 cup Pyrex baking dish.)

Place the meat mixture into your baking dish.

Cover the top of your meat with ketchup or you can use barbecue sauce.

Place the bowl onto the trivet and into your Instant Pot. Close the lid and make sure the sealing valve is closed.

After the timer goes off, allow the pot to self release for 10 minutes. Then quick release whatever pressure is left.

Allow your meatloaf to rest for 10 minutes then remove the grease and serve. Enjoy!
