    Posted by  ·  February 16, 2017

    Your family will love this delicious Instant Pot pressure cooker spaghetti sauce! You will love what an easy pressure cooker recipe it is!  Once again the pressure cooker can make meal time a breeze.  While the sauce is cooking, whip up a quick salad and in about 10 minutes you have dinner made. This recipe is also gluten free, dairy free and soy free. I even have dessert covered with some amazing pressure cooker dessert recipes.

    I have made this spaghetti sauce with both ground beef, sausage and a mixture of both.  We liked them all, so use what your family and friends like best.  If using ground sausage be sure to check ingredients to make sure it is allergy free if you have diet limitations.

    Instant Pot Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Sauce

    2 lbs ground beef or sausage

    1 small onion, chopped (optional)

    4 garlic cloves, minced

    2 (14 ounce) cans diced tomatoes

    2 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste

    2 (15 ounce) cans tomato sauce

    1 cup water

    3 teaspoons basil

    2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes

    1 1/2 teaspoons brown sugar

    1 teaspoon salt

    1/4- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

    1/4 teaspoon fresh coarse ground black pepper

    1/4 cup red wine ( a good one!)

    Pantry Items:

    Gluten free spaghetti. I love Barilla. No one ever guesses it it gluten free.

    Adding parmesan cheese is always a nice touch  if your diet allows.

    Brown sausage or hamburger. Add onions and continue to cook, stirring occasionally until onions are softened. Drain any fat.

    Of course this recipe can be made all at once but it makes a ton.  Put all ingredients in pressure cooker and  cook high pressure for 10 minutes.

    I divide ingredients between a gallon freezer bag and my Instant Pot pressure cooker. Freeze one batch and cook one.  Cook 8 minutes at high pressure.  Cook from frozen high pressure 15 minutes.

    Now it is time for dessert! This is while you will want two inner pots for your Instant Pot pressure cooker. When dinner is done pull it out and then slip a new pot in with a pressure cooker dessert!

      Thanks for this recipe! It turned out great. I'm wanting to learn to use my IP even more since my family and I are on a year-long journey around the US in an RV. The IP is a must. Also, I'm gluten free, so your site looks like a perfect match. To chime in on Jeanette's question, mine did have a bit of well-done sauce at the bottom, but it was very little. Nothing that concerned me. I'll definitely make this again.

      Just one question, since tomato sauce will typically burn in the bottom of the IP, how does this recipe work? Does it also burn? I just can't see it not burning. I'd love to do my own sauce, but I'm afraid I'll have a black, burned on mess at the bottom of my liner. Thanks.
