How to Make Instant Pot Meatloaf
Saute the onions, carrots, and celery (directly in the Instant Pot). Combine with ground beef and spicy Italian sausage. Add some eggs, cream, BBQ sauce, bread crumbs and a couple shakes of hot pepper sauce. Mold into a loaf on top of a piece of tin foil that will fit your Instant Pot. Pour a cup of water into the Instant Pot and place meatloaf into pot on top of trivet. Set timer to 40 minutes on pressure cook. Naturally release pressure for 10 minutes after cooking cycle. Carefully remove, drizzle more BBQ sauce on top and enjoy!
