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 lean towards seasonings like Tajin with a little butter.
We browned up ground beef and decided to use half of it to make this beef and potato au gratin in our 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, and then dishes out in bowls for the family when you are done.
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 start layering potatoes, ground beef, and cheese.
You’ll want 3 layers before pouring 1/2- 3/4 C. of chicken broth over the top of everything and locking 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 in bowls topped with a little extra cheese.
Fair warning though: you won’t have any left. Our kids loved it and ate every bit.
