I lightened this Instant Pot® goulash up by using ground turkey instead of beef. You can add corn, beans, or peas and you could top with cheese.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add olive oil and turkey; cook until halfway browned and crumbly, 3 to 4 minutes. Add carrots, onion, bell pepper, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, seasoned salt, and black pepper.

  • Mix water with Worcestershire sauce and bouillon granules in a small bowl. Pour into meat mixture and mix well. Bring to a simmer. Add macaroni and paprika and stir. Add tomatoes and tomato sauce, making sure not to stir after this addition. Close and lock the lid. Set timer for 4 minutes. Allow about 10 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions to prevent sauce from mixing with the steam, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Mix well.

Cook's Note:

You can also use Italian-seasoned diced tomatoes or stewed tomatoes instead of regular diced.

It was delicious. Better than my Mother’s recipe. The Grandkids loved it too. I toasted a few slices of cheese toast. The Texas toast you get from the grocery store, in the freezer section. I will make this for years to come. Read More

final direction for using the instant pot were very unclear....I'm new to using my instant pot and saying set timer for 4 minutes and allow pressure to build for 10 minutes were very unclear! Was I suppose to set it for pressure cooking? Or leave it on saute? Dont assume everyone just knows what you are talking about!!! will never make again! Read More

Wasn't able to update my other review so here goes a different one. The 2nd time I made this with diced red pepper, sliced carrots, and added a can of corn. I also used a ~15oz can of tomato sauce which I think is much better than the smaller one. I only had rotini noodles at home and they worked fine at 2 cups. Read More

I did not use an Instant Pot, I cooked stovetop. The only adjustment was it needed a bit more water. This recipe is SO good. My husband loved it. I enjoyed making this and would not change anything about the recipe. It is DELICIOUS! Read More

This was not just delicious, it was also my first ever instant pot meal. I followed the instructions, and can't think of anything that I would change. Perfectly seasoned. For any other new instant pot chefs, this cooked perfectly in the 3 quart mini. Read More
