  • Instant Pot


  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 4 medium carrots chopped
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon mild chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cans beans in tomato sauce (15 ounce cans)
  • 2 cans kidney beans drained and rinsed (15 ounce cans)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (15 ounce can)
  • 2 cups tomato puree (tomato passata)
  • 1 1/2 cup beef stock


  • Start the Instant Pot on "Saute" mode and let it heat up. Wait until the screen says "Hot" and then add the olive oil and the beef.
  • Brown the beef for about 5 minutes, adding the onion, garlic, carrots, celery, bell pepper, spices, and salt.
  • Continue sauteing for a few minutes more, just until the veggies begin to soften.
  • Add the beans, canned tomatoes, tomato puree, and beef stock and stir everything together well.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and seal the lid. Place the release valve on "sealing".
  • Cook for 10 minutes on "Pressure Cook".
  • When the Pressure Cook time is finished, carefully turn the release valve to "venting" using a long pair of tongs or another long kitchen tool so you don't burn your hand, arm or face. It's a good idea to do this under an exhaust fan in your kitchen, if you have one.
  • When the pressure has released, open the lid and serve in bowls with a dollop of sour cream, some cheese, and some fresh parsley or chives.
