Ingredients

  • 1 lb browned ground beef seasoned well with salt and pepper
  • 5 russet potatoes peeled and sliced in 1/4" slices
  • 1.5 C shredded cheddar or sharp cheese
  • 3/4 C chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning we used a blend of basil, marjoram, oregano and thyme or your own seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil

Instructions

  • In the bottom of your clean Instant Pot, add the olive oil and use a napkin to swipe it evenly around as to coat it completely.
  • Combine the Italian seasoning, paprika, salt, and pepper in a small bowl.
  • In your Instant Pot, layer the sliced potatoes, then sprinkle a portion of the ground beef, and top with shredded cheese. Generously season with 1/3 of the seasoning you set aside in the bowl.
  • Repeat twice more, layering potatoes, ground beef, cheese, and additional seasoning.
  • Once all 3 layers are done, pour over 3/4 C. chicken broth.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, and seal the valve. Set the Instant Pot for 15 minutes at high pressure.
  • Once the pot beeps done, release the pressure and dish into bowls.

Notes

Feel free to do two layers of potatoes, beef and cheese, and then reduce the broth to just 1/2 C. for the same amount of cooking time.
