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
- Mashed Potatoes
- 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
- 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 in 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
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.
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.
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.
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?!
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!
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!
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.
Dana Britt says:
I love this one. It is so easy and we love it!
Shannon Bowie Persha says:
My husband said it was the best meatloaf he’s ever had! I followed recipe exactly, except I did add a tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce. As reviewers above said; the meatloaf was not cooked through so I had to pull the potatoes and cook the meatloaf again at high pressure 9 minutes. Next time I will try to flatten it a bit more, and up my time cooking.
Tara Cambre says:
I love that I can do the meatloaf and potatoes at the same time. They both came out perfectly! I used my own meatloaf recipe with different seasonings and Country Bob’s steak sauce to go along with the bread crumbs and egg. I also did my own topping under the broiler for 5 minutes.
Joan Majerik says:
I made this recipe for the first time, I made it with an extra 1/2 lb of pork sausage so 2 lbs in all. I added 3 more minutes on pressure time it turned out perfect. Finished off under the broiler.. Potatoes were very creamy so happy with my Multipot.
Deb Bluher says:
Too salty and did not hold together well.
Janet B says:
Followed the recipe exactly, and it came out great! However, next time I will tweak the recipe for fun. Will definitely make again- thanks!
Deb Forse says:
This was fun to make as well as eat. The only change I made was to let it “keep warm “ for 20 minutes instead of a quick release after 5 minutes and it turned out perfect. Delicious!!
Shelley Brant says:
I followed the recipe exactly and it was absolutely delicious. It was easy too and will be making this again.
