This Easy InstantPot Meatloaf recipe will have a full meal on the table in less than 45 minutes. It’s moist, easy and delicious!

Meatloaf. It was the meal that caused dinner fights as a newlywed. I didn’t grow up eating meatloaf much. My husband must have lived on the stuff because he kept telling me to make meatloaf for dinner.

Through the years I made many recipes, and they were either too dry, too plain, and in my mind, too boring.

Then, my husband, growing weary of waiting, made meatloaf. Yawn.

For his birthday one year, I went all out and made this stuffed meatloaf recipe, and we were all buying the meatloaf farm!

These days, life is a full accelerator. We’re trying to come up for air in between work and sports practice, sports practice, and errands. It’s a cycle that has me not wanting to spend a lot of time making dinner.

This is where this InstantPot Meatloaf Recipe comes in handy. It’s easy. I use two bowls and EVERYONE at my table enjoys it. There is no nose turning up when this sits before my family.


InstantPot Meatloaf Recipe Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs hamburger
  • 1 1/2 cups of Panko crumbs (you can use any bread crumbs)
  • 1 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp of McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning 
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup beef broth

InstantPot Meatloaf Recipe Red Meatloaf Sauce Ingredients:

  • 5 tsp brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup of ketchup
  • 1 tbs dry mustard
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

InstantPot Meatloaf Recipe Potatoes, Onions, and Carrots:

  • 10 small potatoes, washed and quartered
  • a small bag of peeled carrots
  • 2 onions peeled and quartered

InstantPot Meatloaf Recipe Instructions:

Add all of your meatloaf ingredients in a bowl and mix it together with your hands.


Combine the Red Meatloaf Sauce ingredients in a separate bowl. You’ll want to mix until the brown sugar incorporates into the rest of the ingredients.


Using the Saute button on the Instant Pot, heat InstantPot for one minute.

Add 2 Tablespoons of olive oil to the InstantPot.

Add potatoes, onions and carrots.

Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook on saute for about 5-minutes, stirring to coat the carrots and potatoes with the oil.

Add 1 cup of beef broth and turn the pressure cooker off.

You will need to create a platform for the meatloaf. You can use aluminum foil (poke a few holes in it to allow juices to drain), or if you have room, I use the grill rack that came with my instantpot. You just need something to cradle around the meat and hold it in place, and that has handles that are on the edge so you can lift the meatloaf out of the instant pot when done.


Once you have your platform on top of the potatoes and carrots, shape your meatloaf. It will need to be round, and there should be spacing between the edges of the meatloaf and the instantpot.

Place shaped meatloaf on a platform inside InstantPot.


Spread half of the Red Meatloaf Sauce on top of the meatloaf. You’ll use the other half when the meatloaf finishes cooking.


Put the lid on the Instant Pot, with the vent sealed.

Turn the manual button on and add 25-minutes.


When the timer dings, do a quick release with the steam button.

Lift the lid and make sure your meatloaf, is done (160-degrees on a meat thermometer). Depending on the size and shape, you may need to seal it back and cook another 2 minutes.


Remove meatloaf and place on a cookie sheet. We’re about to make that meatloaf topping ooey-gooey.


Add the remaining sauce to the top of the meatloaf and broil in the oven for about 5-minutes. Don’t leave the room because it will burn quickly. Just enough time to caramelize the topping.


While your meatloaf is under the broiler, remove the potatoes and carrots. Go ahead, taste one, all the juices from the meatloaf make these taste amazing.


It is moist and holds the slices well; making it perfect for leftover meatloaf sandwiches!



This InstantPot Meatloaf is seriously so good that my family asks for it a few times a week.
