I’ve wanted to try and make burgers in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker for some time now but never got around to it until now.

I know it sounds a little weird making hamburgers in a pressure cooker but I know some people who exclusively use their Instant Pot for cooking. So I had to try it for them.

This recipe is more of a how-to-make burgers in a Pressure Cooker versus the burger patties themselves. I’m using simple seasoning but you can make the patties however you want. Cook time should not change.

How to Handle Raw Beef

  • Thaw raw ground beef on a plate on the lowest shelf of the refrigerator, to avoid dripping onto other foods.
  • Keep raw and ready-to-eat meats separate.
  • Wash hands thoroughly before and after handling raw ground beef. Wash cutting boards, bowls, and utensils used to prepare raw ground beef with hot soapy water and rinse well.
  • Use separate plates to carry raw ground beef patties to the cooking area and cooked patties to the serving area.
  • Use a Thermometer to ensure Ground Beef Reaches the Safely Cooked Internal Temperature of 160°F.

The one thing I will point out though is that these burgers will not have any pink in them. This is because they are pressure cooked.

May not be a big deal for some but I know some of you will think the burgers will be overcooked. Not the case at all. Done properly these burgers will be cooked to juice perfection!
