Instant Pot Meatloaf Recipe Red Meatloaf Sauce Ingredients:

5 tsp brown sugar

2/3 cup of ketchup

1 tbs dry mustard

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 cup beef broth

1 bag small golden potatoes

Reserve 1-1/2 cup of the meat mixture.

Shape the remaining meatloaf into an oval.

Tip: Use a butter knife to trace a circle that will fit in your Instant Pot on a piece of foil so you know how long your foot meatloaf can be to fit in nicely.

Once you have your oval, measure one cup of your reserved meatloaf and add to the larger end of the oval to shape the ankle and part of the leg.

Create a “bowl” in the top to hold the sauce.

With the remaining meat mixture, create five meatballs getting smaller in size, for the toes.

Place the meatballs on the narrower end of the oval for toes.

Place under the broiler for 5 minutes. KEEP AN EYE ON IT, it may not need a full five minutes. You just want it to get “sticky”.
