Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni




Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni




Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni is a comfort food meal that tastes great! It reminds me of the "Cheeseburger Helper" we had growing up! This pressure cooker cheeseburger macaroni is creamy, cheesy, and delicious!


Ingredients

·      1 lb Ground Beef or Ground Turkey (93% lean)
·      1 Onion, chopped (or 3/4 tsp Onion Powder)
·      2 cloves Garlic, minced (or 1 tsp Garlic Powder)
·      3/4 tsp Seasoned Salt
·      1/2 tsp Kosher Salt (or 1/4 tsp table salt)
·      1/2 tsp Pepper
·      1 tsp Hot Sauce (optional)
·      1 tsp Dijon Mustard (or 2 - 3 tsp dry mustard powder)
·      3 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth (or Water)
·      12 oz Small Macaroni (3 cups) uncooked
To Finish
·      2 cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese (fresh shredded)
·      1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese (fresh shredded)
·      1/4 - 2/3 cup Milk
Garnish
·      Fresh Chopped Parsley
·      Dollop of Soup Cream

Instructions
1.  Turn on the pot's Sauté setting. When it is hot, add the ground beef and onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender, translucent, and the meat is browned.
2.  Add garlic. Stir.
3.  If not using fresh onion or garlic, add all of the spices after browning the meat.
4.  Add the hot sauce, if using, Dijon, and broth. Stir.
5.  Put a glass lid, or other lid on to let the broth heat up to almost a simmer. If you have to use the IP's lid, make sure it is on Venting.
6.  Next, remove glass lid and add the macaroni and make sure it is submerged.
7.  Close the IP lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position. Then cancel the Sauté setting.
8.  Press the Pressure Cook (or Manual) button, or dial, then the +/- button or dial to select 4 minutes (or 1/2 the cook time your pasta's package directions indicate). The pot will take a few minutes to come to pressure.
