Did you know you can cook FROZEN ground beef in the Instant Pot? Here’s how! CLICK HERE Does it taste terrible in the Instant Pot? No!
I’ve tried boiling ground beef (BLECH!). I’ve tried cooking it in a slow cooker (mealy). Back in my microwave days, I even tried microwave-cooking (rubbery).
The only ground beef that tasted good was grilled or sautéed. I couldn’t tell a taste difference between browned and IP-cooked ground beef.
It had the same feel, taste, texture, and consistency. It wasn’t dried out. It was delicious. AND the Instant Pot cooked it without any effort from me. No standing over the stove. No watching the meat.
