Delicious layers of beef, potatoes and cheese in this beef and potato au gratin made easily in the Instant Pot – a definite winner for any family!
I don’t know too many people who aren’t in love with potatoes. Around here, the kids dump ketchup on them while the adults tend to heap on the butter and sour cream.
For this beef and potato au gratin, we browned up ground beef and layered with potatoes and cheese for an easy dish made in the Instant Pot.
It’s really easy to make, and a great way to use up some russet potatoes. Once you add everything to the Instant Pot, it cooks relatively quickly. If you have kids, they’ll devour it!
Instant Pot Beef and Potato Au Gratin
This recipe uses a few simple ingredients – potatoes, ground beef, cheese, chicken broth, and spices. I took this recipe from The Magical Slow Cooker and adapted it for my Instant Pot. You can also make it in your slow cooker but it will take a bit longer.
Grease the bottom of your Instant Pot really well with a little olive oil or coconut oil. Then make 3 layers, alternating between potatoes, ground beef, and cheese.
After you layer, pour 1/2 – 3/4 C. of chicken broth over the top of everything. Lock the lid to seal the valve. Set your timer for 15 minutes on high pressure and allow the cooker to do its thing.
Once it’s done, serve up next to a yummy salad with a side of garlic bread, and watch your family dive right in.
Fair warning though: you won’t have any left. Our kids loved it and ate every bit.
