Instant Pot Hungry Man’s Casserole–a hearty meat and potatoes dinner that cooks in just a 1 minute pressure cooking time!
Instant Pot Hungry Man’s Casserole
If you’re a fan of meat and potatoes types of meals this one is for you! Greg and Skyler both LOVED this meal and the pot was scraped clean. Reagan and I loved it too. We all did! Good hearty food!
- The ground beef I used was lean (90/100. I didn’t drain the grease after browning because there wasn’t much grease at all.
- How thin or thick you slice the potatoes will be the determinant on how long to pressure cook. Ours were very thinly sliced and we used a 1 minute pressure cook time with a 5 minute natural pressure release. If your potatoes are thicker try a 2 minute pressure cooking time. You can even do cubed potatoes with a 4 minute pressure cook time.
- Mix it up! Try using cream of mushroom soup or cream of celery soup in the place of cream of chicken.
- If you’d rather leave out the cream of chicken soup you can. Double the sour cream/cornstarch mixture and add in 1 tsp of poultry seasoning and salt and pepper to taste.
- I used a shredded cheddar and Monterey jack cheese mix. But feel free to use whatever cheese you like (colby jack is a good one!).
- Serve this casserole with steamed vegetables and a side of corn. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
- I used a 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1.* You can also use a 3 or 8 quart pot. For the 8 quart pot use 1.5 cups of beef broth.
