2. Ground Beef Sloppy Joes
This is a favorite family recipe that will be a special hit with the kids—or kids at heart. Serve with buns or toasted buns for an extra crunch.
- 2 lbs. ground beef
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 green pepper (diced)
- 2 garlic cloves (diced)
- 1/2 cup ketchup
- 1/2 Tbsp. tomato paste
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 1/2 Tbsp. brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp mustard
- 1/2 cup water
- Turn your pressure cooker on sauté mode, and then add in your olive oil.
- Cook the seasoned ground beef until browned, which will take about 5 to 7 minutes.
- Add in your onion, pepper, and garlic. Cook until onions are soft.
- Then, mix together your brown sugar, water, mustard, and remaining ingredients; add them to the pot and deglaze with a spoon.
- Add on tomato paste and ketchup on top of the mixture, but do not mix!
- Then pressure cook on high pressure with the lid locked for 5 minutes.
- Let the steam release naturally for 10 minutes, and then manually release the rest.
- Slowly combine the mixture until everything is well-mixed.
- At this stage, you can add some optional red pepper flakes if you want your sloppy joes to be spicy.
- Then cook on low for a few minutes or until the mixture has been reduced enough that the liquid is mostly cooked away so that the mixture won’t soak the buns.
- When reduced to your liking, serve your sloppy joes with buns or toasted buns.
