How to make Hamburgers in the Instant Pot
Hi there friends. Welcome to Home Pressure Cooking. Today I am sharing how to make hamburgers in the Instant Pot. Truth be told it wasn’t my intentions to make burgers in the Instant Pot that day. My husband was off from work this past weekend and we were planning to be outdoor and do a little BBQ. Our Saturday was perfect and we did some chicken on the grill and then Sunday was going to be home made burgers. Well…a big storm blew in with tornado high winds and rain and that plan was obviously off.
I didn’t want to do them in the oven or the skillet because that just makes a mess. I thought I would experiment in the Instant Pot. They were a hit, and super yummy. I made them too big though. My husband said they looked like mini meatloaf, that was as he was wrapping his big mouth around them LOL!
I made our burgers homemade with ground sirloin. You can use ground beef, chuck or sirloin. Burgers should always have a little fat in the them as they are more juicer.
I added breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, an egg, hot sauce, Insta-beef, onion, shredded cheese and salt and pepper to the mix.
I don’t have the exact measurements of the Worcestershire, Insta beef of Tabasco sauce. I just added it to our liking.
Next time I would not add the cheese to the mix. I like to see my cheese melted on top.
I mixed up the meat well and formed a good size burger as you can see. There was little shrinkage. Here is a tip for you. When making home made burgers, after forming your patty, stick your thumb in the center. That will ensure to keep the perfect form.
I wrapped the burgers individually in tin foil and then stacked them on my Insta-trivet.
I added one cup of water to the pot and set on High Pressure Manual for 12 minutes.
You can put them under the broiler for about 5 minutes if you like. I did not find it necessary to turn on the oven.
They were juicy and oh so tasty!
Give it a try. Pin it, save it, make it.
