Cheesy Instant Pot Goulash

So I made this easy cheesy Instant Pot goulash the other day and it turned out amazing! Creamy goulash with the same flavors you love with two different cheeses within it too. Total comfort food in your pressure cooker that will be your kid's new favorite dinner for sure.

  • Turn your pressure cooker to saute and add olive oil, sausage or ground beef, onions and diced bell peppers.
  • Cook until meat is no longer pink, turn Pot off/cancel button.
  • Pour in your beef broth, then spaghetti sauce, then diced tomatoes, then your uncooked noodles and DO NOT stir. 
  • Push noodles down so they are submerged in liquid and close lid and steam valve. (if cooking on the stovetop do stir this and boil on low until noodles are soft enough for you and serve)
  • Set pressure cooker to high pressure for 5 minutes.
  • Do a quick release.
  • Stir in heavy cream and cheese, stir until cheese is melted.
  • Serve immediately or wait 5 minutes or so and allow goulash to thicken as it sits and then serve!
