Optional (Only If Needed):

  • 1-2 tsp bouillon , (I used Better Than Bouillon - Beef Flavor)


  • Press "Saute" and adjust it to "normal" setting. When the Instant Pot displays "Hot", add 2 tablespoons of oil. 
  • Cook ground beef undisturbed for 1 minute, add ¼ tsp of salt and continue cooking for 3 minutes.
    Use a spatula or wooden spoon to break the ground beef up into smaller pieces as it cooks. Keep stirring.
  • Add diced onion and continue cooking for 3 minutes or until translucent.
  • Add chopped garlic and diced green bell pepper. Stir for about 1 minute or until the ground beef is no longer pink.
  • Stir in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes into the pot. Cook for 2 minutes.
    Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to remove any residue or brown spots to prevent burning.
  • Add dried Italian seasoning, dried basil, and Worcestershire sauce into the mixture. Stir to combine.
  • Pour in beef broth and stir.
  • Add rice and gently press into the broth. Do not stir!
  • Close and secure the lid. Set it to "manual" for 3 minutes.
  • Once the cooking cycle has completed, leave it undisturbed for 10 minutes then manually release the remaining pressure.
  • If the broth is too little, you can add 1-2 cups of hot beef broth. Adjust seasoning with salt/pepper or bouillon if needed.
