An easy instant pot dinner option. Just toss some ingredients in the instant pot and let it roll.

What you will need

1 red onion

1 jalapeño

olive oil as needed

1/2 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp paprika or chili powder

1 lb ground beef

2 large russet potatoes

2 large carrots

1 large can (28oz.) crushed tomatoes

How to cook


Dice jalapeño

Cut the jalapeño very finely. This way they'll mostly disappear in the cooking process. A fine dice like this is also known as a brunoise. The jalapeño here is just to add a little extra heat. Skip it if you aren't a fan of spicy food.


Heat oil

Warm some oil in your instant pot. You can turn the pot on to the meat setting to get it going.


Add onion

Dump in the onion and let it cook for a few minutes.


Add jalapeño

Add the jalapeño and cook for 5-10 minutes, or until the onion begins to tenderize and turn translucent.


Add spices

When the onions are beginning to soften, toss in the spices. I like to give my spices a few minutes to toast. It really helps the flavor.


Add ground beef

Once you can smell your spices, dump in the ground beef. Let it cook until browned.


Dice potatoes

Peel and dice the potatoes. If you need a hand, or want to improve your technique, just check out this recipe.


Add tomatoes, potato, and carrot

Now you can add the remaining ingredients. Dump them in, and stir it all up.



Seal 'er up and let 'er roll. I believe I used some kind of meat setting on this. I don't pay much attention with my instant pot. I just push a button that makes sense and then check to see if it's done cooking.


Season and serve

If the potatoes are tender all the way through, it's ready to eat. Season with salt and pepper.
