Bacon Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/2 cup beef broth
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar
  • 6 toasted brioche hamburger buns
  • Add ground beef to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function and adjust to MORE or HIGH.
  • Brown the meat until no pink remains. Drain fat. Transfer browned meat to a shallow dish and cover loosely with foil.
  • Add bacon to the pot and cook until crisp. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Add onion to the bacon drippings and saute until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Add broth to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  • Put the ground beef back into to the pot and add the ketchup, worcestershire and mustard.
  • Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  • Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 5 minutes.
  • When the time is up, quick-release the pressure.
  • In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch and cold water. Stir into the pot until thickened, returning to SAUTE mode as needed.
  • Stir in bacon and cheese. Serve hot on toasted brioche buns.
