YUMMY! Use ground beef or ground chicken for this recipe. You can also have the option to add potatoes for a full meal.


  • 1 lb ground meat
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 small can drained mushrooms (I like to chop these)
  • 1 cup milk


  • Thick sliced potatoes (about 1/2 ” slices) Sea salt and dry garlic grinder


  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 4 TBSP brown sugar


Spray inner pot with non-stick spray.

Mix Meatloaf ingredients, shape into a round loaf and place inside pot, forming to fit.

I like to form meatloaf more to one side of the pot and add thick potato slices stacked up in the remaining area next to the loaf. (If you decide to add potatoes, season them now with sea salt/garlic.)

Make your meatloaf topping and add to the top of your loaf.

Close and lock Instant pot lid and make sure the Steam Release Handle is in “venting” position. Choose the Slow Cook key and adjust (using – or +) for time. Then adjust for Temperature (using the Less/Normal/More keys – Less=Low/Normal=Med/More=High)

Cooking Time:

  • LOW 6-8 hours or on HIGH 4-6 hours
