Tomato and beef sauce with a hint of wine for your pasta. I've made this fairly basic but feel free to adjust the seasoning to your tastes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Select Saute function and adjust the setting to low. Add ground beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes. Drain and set aside. Add onion, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the pot and saute until tender, about 5 minutes. Turn Saute function off.

  • Select Saute function again and adjust the setting to high heat. Saute for an additional 4 to 5 minutes, stirring infrequently to allow brown bits to form on the bottom of the pot. Pour in red wine to deglaze. Add both tomatoes and browned beef mixture; stir to combine.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Release any additional pressure carefully using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Add lemon juice and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use 1 tablespoon each basil, oregano, parsley, and a pinch of red pepper flakes if you don't have the Italian seasoning.

Now isn t this a smart recipe! No more stirring every five minutes. No more splatters to clean up. I used a traditional pressure cooker and after 15 minutes it was thick enough for pasta. I used the exact ingredients and didn t think they needed to be changed at all. The flavor is simple yet wonderful. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

This recipie lacked flavor. I substituted fire roasted tomatoes for the whole tomatoes and still there was no flavor. The instructions are easy to follow as this was my first Instant Pot meal I tried. I am hoping my next meal will be better. Read More

This was so quick and easy to make! It's incredibly delicious and one of my new favourites - will be making this often:) I made the following substitutions to work with what I had on hand: - white white vinegar instead of wine - diced tomatoes instead of crushed - strained tomatoes instead of canned San Marzano tomatoes Read More
