How to make Meatloaf in the Instant Pot/Pressure cooker


Gorgeous and delicious Meatloaf


What's Cookin!


“Meatloaf again”!~ That’s a little inside joke between my family and I. You see long before the Instant Pot came into my life, my big GO-to once a week meal was meatloaf. It was easy, basic, and pretty much a no- brainer. Meatloaf still is easy, basic and a no-brainer. Except I kicked it up a notch or two and made it look a bit more gourmet. Looks like I spent all day slaving over this meatloaf.

Today I am sharing how to make Meatloaf in the Instant pot or any Pressure cooker you may have.

I made my meatloaf in my new Spring Form/Bundt pan. This was about the 3rd time in the past 4 months. So as you can see I have branched out a bit on my weekly menu. I thank the Instant Pot for that.

The meatloaf was so dense, moist and delicious. Can you believe I fit 2lbs. of meat in the pan? Mind you the pan is all of 7 inches and a tad over 2 inches high. It sure was a mile high loaf though.

My family is in awwww over the meal presentations. Little did they know this took me all of  less than 1 hour to whip up. If you like the Insta-pan, you check that out HERE on Amazon.

Enjoy! Hope to see you back again. See recipe down below.

Add your first layer of meatloaf to the pan being sure you spread around evenly. You can use your clean hands to pat down or a spatula as you go.

Step 5

***Optional*** 2 hard-boiled eggs
If you are going to, add in hard boiled eggs whole in a formed gully in your bottom layer of meatloaf you can do that step now. Form two gullies and add your whole hard boiled egg in the gully. I only did this for a bit of interest and they tasted really good too.

Step 6

Add the remaining mixture on top being sure to spread evenly and cover the hard-boiled eggs if you added them. Pat down evenly and smooth out the loaf.

Step 7

You can then add some chili sauce on top along with a little salt and pepper or any seasoning to your liking. (My husband has his own seasoning coming on the market soon) :)

Step 8

Be sure to wrap the bottom of your Spring form pan with foil tightly. There is no doubt you will get some slight leaking from the fat and juices from the loaf.

Step 9
Mark as Complete

Set your pot on Manual HP for 38 minutes. Always be sure to put a cup of water in the pot.

Step 10

Once your pot beeps you may do a Quick release. Remove the pan gently and rest on a wire wrack or plate to cool.

Step 11
Mark as Complete

Remove the Spring form pan and at that point if you have my pan you can take another plate and place over the loaf and flip gently. This baby is dense, so I wouldn't worry about breaking it.

Step 12

Serve with mashed potatoes home fries and a vegetable of choice. ENJOY!
