Why Instant Pot Meatloaf Works

This meatloaf is just like an old family meatloaf recipe, but I’ve made it so much faster with an Instant Pot. Here are a few reasons why you (and your kids) will love it,

  • Prep is speedy. There’s only 5 minutes of hands-on time, and then you can set-and-forget it with the Instant Pot. It makes for a fabulous busy night menu.
  • Dry meatloaf? Not here. Unlike traditional oven-baked meatloaf, you won’t find a dry bite here. The Instant Pot locks in all of the flavor and moisture.
  • The perfect comfort food. I like this recipe any time, but it’s especially timely during the colder months. It will fill and warm you up. Pair it with mashed potatoes for the full effect.

We also love a good instant pot chili recipe to keep on hand for busy weeknights! No need to simmer all day here.


Ingredient Notes

For The Loaf

  • Ground Beef – Grab the ground beef labeled 80% lean, 20% fat for the juiciest meatloaf that isn’t too greasy.
  • Onion
  • Quick-Cook Oatmeal – You might find this labeled as Quick Oats at the grocery store.
  • Cheddar Cheese – Shred it yourself, or buy a package of pre-shredded cheese for convenience.
  • Garlic Powder
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Milk – Any dairy milk will work in this recipe, so if you want to lighten it up, use fat-free or 2%.
  • Egg– helps bind the beef together for a tender texture.
