Pressure Cooker Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes
- 1½ pounds (85% lean) ground beef
- 1 onion, diced small
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup bread crumbs
- ¼ cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-inch cubes
- 1 cup chicken stock
- ½ cup half-and-half
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
For best results, we recommend using:
- Mix ground beef, onion, eggs, bread crumbs, ketchup, soy sauce, garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper together in a large bowl using your hands just until texture is consistent.
- Turn meat mixture onto the center of a 14x20-inch sheet of aluminum foil and shape into a 6x3-inch loaf, keep the sides higher than the center to prevent fat from dripping into the potatoes.
- Arrange potatoes into pressure cooker pot. Pour chicken stock over the potatoes.
- Gently rest trivet onto potatoes and place foil sheet with meatloaf onto trivet.
- Lock pressure cooker lid in place. Set steam vent to Sealing.
- Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook for 22 minutes on High pressure.
- Allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then set steam vent to Venting to quick-release remaining pressure.
- Lift meatloaf from pot and move to a cutting board to rest before slicing.
- Drain liquid out of the pot of potatoes. Mash potatoes in the pot with half-and-half, butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper until smooth and all the liquid is absorbed.
- Scoop potatoes onto plates and gently lean a meatloaf slice over one side of the pile of potatoes to serve.
For a slightly different finish to your meatloaf, brush ketchup over the top of the loaf and place under a hot broiler for 5 minutes.
What others are saying
Susan Davis says:
This was great! While I was finishing the potatoes, I placed the meatloaf under the broiler in the oven just to get the top brown. I used Worcester instead of soy sauce and might try a little Heinz 57 on the top next time. I love cooking the meat and potatoes at the same too.
Travis Johnson says:
The mashed potatoes turned out great, but I had to finish cooking the meatloaf in oven. The meal turned out good, but required a little more work than expected.
Santana Williams says:
The trivet is the best accessory that comes with the Multpot! I love being able to cook the potatoes and meatloaf at the same time. I work crazy hours, and by the time I get home the last thing I want to do is slave over a hot stove. I can put this in, walk away, and come back to a delicious dinner!
Jordan Clark says:
This is a great dinner that's filling and delicious. Meatloaf and potatoes take forever to cook, so the fact that I was able to cook both at the same time in the same pot was wonderful. Best gift ever, I love my Multipot!
DC Cote says:
I skipped the onion for the meatloaf and used ground turkey to make this recipe family friendly. My husband isn't a big red meat eater. The ketchup finish on the top is a must, isn't this how everyone does it?!
Dominique M says:
I used my own meatloaf recipe, which uses ground beef, onion, freshly minced garlic, and dried parsley. The recipe turned out great, I LOVE being able to cook both the meatloaf and the potatoes at the same time. This is a great recipe for working moms, single moms, etc.
Alex Cabral says:
I tried this recipe and made a few simple changes, like using a homemade ketchup made from brown sugar and tomato paste, and also using sour cream in the mashed potatoes. I also used Worcestershire instead of soy sauce in the meatloaf. This was delicious, and being able to make it in my pressure cooker all at once was such a breeze.
