Pressure cooker Sloppy Joes are an easy and quick weeknight meal your kids are sure to love. A slightly sweet and tangy sauce mixes with some veggies and hamburger for a yummy sloppy joe. I like to make this meal ahead of time and freeze. I then can take it out of the freezer and put it in my Instant Pot for a no prep, no work meal. We even make dessert in our pressure cooker. Yes, that is right! We love this Pressure Cooker Key Lime Cheesecake. Check out all the pressure cooker recipes we have been making.
Delicious Sloppy Joes made in your Instant Pot
You can use any pressure cooker but I do love the Instant Pot. It was easy to use straight out of the box. I have now been using mine for two years and have made hundreds of tasty meal. It totally changed our dinner time. I feel like in minutes I can whip up healthy meals. We eat more grains (like quinoa), beans and lentils because they cook so quickly.
