I love using my Instant Pot on the regular for all of my meat dishes including:

HOW TO MAKE MEATLOAF IN THE INSTANT POT

The key to this Instant Pot meatloaf is mixing your ingredients thoroughly, and using a piece of foil to form the loaf.

You could use a small loaf pan that fits inside the Instant Pot, but I think the foil worked perfectly and I didn’t want to have to buy a special pan.

The ingredients in this instant pot meatloaf are ground beef (I like to get mine from Butcherbox and you can get free bacon save $15 off of your first box!), grated onion, almond flour (I used my tutorial for how to make almond flour), heavy cream, egg, mustard powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

I used almond flour to keep this meatloaf keto, but you can definitely use breadcrumbs instead.

I combined all of the ingredients with the best tool…my hands!  I laid out a sheet of foil and put the meat mixture on top, then I formed the loaf.

I crinkled the foil around the meatloaf and I put it in the instant pot, on the rack.  I also added 1 cup of water into the pot.

meatloaf in the instant pot

I sealed the lid and I set the Instant pot to cook for 20 minutes at high pressure.  When the time was up, I let the pressure release for 10 minutes.

For the glaze on top of the meatloaf, I mixed together ketchup, soy sauce, sweetener, and apple cider vinegar.  I spooned it over the top and had some leftover for dipping.

If you want, you can put the meatloaf under the broiler for a few minutes.

I like to serve this Instant Pot Meatloaf with mashed cauliflower and blistered green beans…so good!!!

    The meatloaf recipe looks good, but I have a question. I try to keep foil away from the food, so would it be ok to line the foil bowl with parchment paper?

    I have used almond flour in other recipes and have not been pleased with the texture of the food. I was wondering if I could substitute crushed pork rinds and if so, how much? Do you find that using almond flour as a filler would affect the texture of the meat loaf as it does with other baked dishes, i.e. muffins, biscuits, desserts, etc.

    I know it’s not considered keto but could I use full fat milk instead of the heavy cream? I have all other ingredients so if I could prevent a trip to the store that would be great ! Lol

    Did you cover the meatloaf completely, or leave the top open and keep foil up to sides?

    This was my first attempt using the Instant Pot and t was absolutely delicious! I did end up broiling it for 10 minutes afterward, and it was soooo good! My husband loved it!

    So simple. So delicious! My IP wound up not sealing properly so I got the dreaded “burn” notice after a while. Rather than waiting to re-seal I went ahead and glazed the loaf and finished it in the oven for about 16 minutes since that was already heated. It was so beautiful but I forgot to take a pic. It was gone in minutes! Quite the hit at the family Christmas potluck. I will definitely make it again and probably 2 at a time. Thanks Jennifer!

    How do you prevent the loaf from stewing in its own ground beef fat in the “foil bowl”? Do you punch a hole at the bottom or just let it cook in it and drain after?
    By the way, I’m cooking this one for the family tonight! 🙂

        And it was a hit! I’ll have to triple the quantity of that glaze because it disappeared fast. I decided not to pierce the foil bowl which turned out great since I used lean ground beef.

    My family adored this meatloaf. Something about using a pressure cooker changes the the texture of the meat to be more dense than when baking in an oven.
    Do we need to double the cooking time when doubling the recipe?

      I really would try to find a rack or use something to keep the meatloaf out of the water. You could make your own sugar free ketchup! https://www.sugarfreemom.com/recipes/healthier-homemade-tomato-ketchup/

      You could ball up aluminum foil and spiral it around the bottom of the pot to set your meatloaf bowl on. That should work!
