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.

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.

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?!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Too salty and did not hold together well.

Followed the recipe exactly, and it came out great! However, next time I will tweak the recipe for fun. Will definitely make again- thanks!

Amazing!! I will never cook meatloaf another way

Image of Deb Forse

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.



Will definitely be making this again! I cooked for 25 minutes and let it hold for 5 and it was cooked through. If any modifications will be made I'd just cut back the salt and pepper in the potatoes next time personally. Will be on the monthly rotation. Satisfied my craving for a bar burger and fries for now. :)

Just put this in the pressure cooker. Will let you know how it turns out. But I read the directions first. At some point while prepping decided to watch the video. Curious because they have two different things. Video has ketchup at he end. And half a cup of stock. Recipe calls for one cup of stock and incorporates ketchup in ingredients.

The mashed potatoes turned out perfect and delicious. The meatloaf needed a lot longer, so I popped it in the oven for about a half hour. I also used worchestershire instead of soy sauce. Overall delicious though.

My first recipe from this app. Good flavor. I used exactly the amount of beef called for and it was raw in the middle. Had to finish it in the oven. Biggest issue is this recipe ingredients did not populate into my grocery list. I had to re-create the list by hand. I also noticed if a quantity isn’t listed, (ie, chopped onions vs 1/2c chopped onion), the ingredient is t added to the list. What a hassle! I realize this is an app issue but I’m unable to review the app bc I am running a beta version of iOS.

You WILL get a FOOD BURN notification with only 1/2 cup of chicken stock. So annoying.

Krysta Bowling says:

So easy and so good! We used 2lbs of beef and used my own meatloaf recipe. Cooked for 30mins and let sit for 10mins before releasing the pressure and it was perfectly cooked. We put it under the broiler for a few minutes just to get a good crisp on top. We made the potatoes per the recipe but added cream cheese. I will definitely be making this again!

Just got my Instapot and this is the first recipe I tried. It turned out fantastic. I did put it under the broiler for 5 minutes just to brown it. VERY HAPPY!

The Instant Pot Meatloaf was delicious as good as any oven baked. The mashed potatoes with the meatloaf all in my mini duo was fabulous according to my mashed potato living husband! Yum!
