Sloppy Joes are a long time family favorite around here. I mean it took my son a little while to really get into them at first. He was kind of like the kid who thought he was getting served poo on a bun (see hilarious YouTube Video presentation below), but now he eats them by the dozen.

Instant Pot Sloppy Joes


1 lb ground beef
1/2 large onion chopped
4 garlic cloves minced
1/2 cup beef broth
1/2 cup ketchup
2/3 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup celery chopped
2/3 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
1 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tablespoon chili powder
1/4 cup water
1 tablespoon corn starch


Turn Instant Pot on to satue. In a small bowl mix together, ketchup, brown sugar, tomato paste, mustard, vinegar, chili powder, and Worcestershire then set aside.
When Instant Pot is hot, add in hamburger and garlic.
Cook until meat starts to brown then drain fat.
Add meat back into the pot. Add celery, peppers, and onion. Cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
Turn Instant Pot off and add ketchup mixture and beef broth.
Cook on manual high pressure for 7 minutes. Quick release when the timer is up.
In a small bowl, mix together water and corn starch.
Turn Instant Pot back onto satue and add corn starch mixture. Cook for 1-2 minutes until sauce becomes thick.
Give everything a nice stir then serve on buns.

Recipe Notes

If you plan on using frozen meat, cook on manual high pressure for 7 minutes then quick release. Chop meat up with spatula (because it will be cooked in chucks) and place back under pressure to finish cooking for 7 minutes. Quick release when the time is up.
