Hot dogs, served in a steamed bun, and topped with celery salt, yellow mustard, chopped onions, and a seasoned meat sauce. 


  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  1. Turn Instant Pot to sauté setting. When display says HOT add in the ground beef and break it up. Add in the onions, chili powder, paprika, allspice, curry, dry mustard, cinnamon and celery salt. Brown for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Add in the broth and scrape the bottom of the pot so that nothing is sticking. Turn off Instant Pot.
