  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 1 pound extra lean (95% lean) ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (28 fluid ounce) can diced tomatoes with juices
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 large Russet potatoes diced
  • 1 dash Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Add the olive oil, onion, and celery to your Instant Pot. Press the sauté button and cook for 4 minutes.

  2. Stir in the beef and garlic. Cook until the beef has browned, stirring occasionally (about 5 minutes). You shouldn't need to drain much fat if you're using extra lean ground beef, but feel free to drain some/most of it if desired (I didn't drain any). 

  3. Stir in the tomato paste, then add in the diced tomatoes, beef broth, potatoes, and Italian seasoning. 

  4. Close the lid, make sure the valve is on "sealing", press the "manual" button and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. 

  5. Once the countdown has finished, carefully do a quick pressure release.

  6. Season with salt & pepper as needed and serve immediately. 

Recipe Notes

  • Serves 4-6. 
  • Anything from about 1 to 1.5 pounds ground beef will work.
  • Use low-sodium beef broth if you're sensitive to salt. 
  • I use this 6-quart Instant Pot.
  • Inactive time indicates the time it takes the Instant Pot to get up to pressure.
  • Try the stovetop version if you don't own an IP.
