Instant Pot Sloppy Joe Casserole
This Instant Pot sloppy joe casserole is my kids favorite dinner. All the best flavors of sloppy joe but with pasta instead of a bun and packed with flavors! A complete meal with ground beef and bell peppers are a great addition too. If you love quick comfort food in your pressure cooker this is a winner.
Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time4 mins
Total Time19 mins
- 1/2 lb spicy ground sausage (or you can use 1 lb. ground beef to be milder)
- 1/2 lb ground beef
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 c noodles we used rotini
- 2 c beef broth or water
- 1 c bell pepper diced, optional
- 1 can petite diced tomatoes 14.5 oz
- 1 can Manwich 24 oz (large can)
- 1/2 onion diced
Put Instant Pot on saute setting, normal, and add olive oil. When warm add ground beef and sausage.
Add diced onions and bell peppers.
Cook until ground beef and sausage is no longer pink. Turn pot off. Drain, and return pot to Instant Pot. Add a bit of your beef broth into your pot to scrape any stuck on meat off the bottom (called deglazing) so false burn notice doesn't pop up.
Add all other ingredients into your pot except for noodles.
Pour noodles on the very top and gently push down so they are submerged in the liquid, do not stir.
Set pressure cooker to pressure, high, for 3 minutes.
Quick release, serve!! Will thicken as it sits too. Can top with cheese for added goodness.
