  • 2.5 lbs russet potatoes
  • 1 cup water or vegetable stock

for the meatloaf:

  • 2 lb ground beef
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1/4 cup grated yellow onion
  • 1.5 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

for the glaze:

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all meatloaf ingredients.
  2. Layer two sheets of aluminum foil and place meat mixture on top. Form into a loaf.
  3. Combine meatloaf glaze ingredients and set aside.
  4. Peel and roughly chop potatoes. Place at the bottom of the IP liner and add water. Place trivet on top.
  5. Place meatloaf in foil on the trivet.
  6. Close the lid and set valve to sealing position.
  7. Press “manual” or “pressure cook” setting and set timer to 30 minutes.
  8. Once the cooking cycle is done, press “cancel/off” button and let the Instant Pot release pressure naturally for 10 minutes. Then switch the valve to release any remaining pressure.
  9. Open the lid and remove trivet with meatloaf, drain any fat that gathered around it.
  10. Add sour cream and butter to the potatoes and mash.
  11. Top meatloaf with glaze mixture. You can broil it for 3 to 4 minutes, if desired.
