Pressure Cooker Sausage and Mashed Potatoes
- 6 red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
- 1 cup water
- 4 thick kielbasa sausages
- ⅓ cup milk
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- ½ cup thinly sliced yellow onions
- ½ cup red wine
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ½ cup cold water
For best results, we recommend using:
- Put potatoes and water in a pressure cooker. Lay sausages onto the potatoes.
- Lock pressure cooker lid in place. Set steam vent to Sealing.
- Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 15 minutes on High pressure. Allow pressure to release naturally.
- Transfer sausages to a plate and cover to keep warm.
- Transfer potatoes to a large bowl; add milk and butter and mash until smooth.
- Discard any liquid from the pot and return to the pressure cooker base.
- Heat oil in pressure cooker set to Sauté on Normal. Cook sausages in hot oil until browned, 30 to 60 seconds per side; add onions and wine. Continue cooking until onions soften slightly, about 2 minutes.
- Stir cold water and cornstarch together in a small bowl until cornstarch is dissolved; stir into the wine-onion mixture until it thickens into a gravy, about 2 minutes.
- Scoop potatoes onto a plate and top with sausage and onion gravy.
Add some roasted garlic or freshly minced garlic to the mashed potatoes for even more flavor. Leave the skin on the red potatoes to take advantage of nutrients like fiber. If you want to know more about fiber, we have an entire article about fiber here!

This reminds me of my trip to London! I had this dish several times while on vacation so I cant explain my excitement when I found this recipe. Instead of using red potatoes, I went with yukon golds because of the higher starch content and thickness of the mashed potatoes. Also added in some garlic and parmesan cheese to the potatoes.

Made this bangers and mash for my husband and he loved it. He actually lived in Germany for some time so it was his idea to make it. When I found this recipe for my MultiPot I surprised him with it. It’s perfect for game day or just hanging out on weekends.

We used beef sausages instead of pork, and serve it with crusty bread and green peas. This was so easy to make in my Mutipot. Super quick and easy.
