  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 6 large uncooked potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 C. water
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • Cooking Spray


  • Brown ground beef in Instant Pot on the Saute function or in a skillet on the stove. If using the Instant Pot, remove meat and drain any grease out. Do a quick rinse of the inner pot before continuing.
  • Combine all spices together in a small bowl.  Mix well.
  • Slice potatoes into 1/8 to 1/4” thick slices.
  • Place trivet in bottom of Instant Pot and 2 cups of water.
  • On top of trivet, layer 1/4 sliced potatoes and ground beef, then top with 1/4 of the shredded cheese.  Sprinkle 1/4 of the seasoning over the top of that.
  • Repeat 2-3 more times. I usually save my last layer of cheese for after it's done cooking. It melts nicely right over the top.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to closed and set the Instant pot for 20 minutes on high pressure.
  • Once the timer has gone off, release the pressure and serve.
