WHY ISN’T MY INSTANT POT PRESSURIZING?

More than likely it is one of (3) things. First, the lid may not be properly sealed. If that little sealing ring isn’t on the underside of the lid just right, the lid won’t seal. Second, it could be that you don’t have the pressure release valve set to “SEAL.” This has happened to me more than once. Lastly, it could be that you don’t have enough liquid in your pressure cooker. You need at least a cup of liquid. Also, be sure you aren’t overfilling your pot. Don’t go above the line provided on the insert of your Instant Pot.Pressure Cooker Meatloaf and Little Potatoes

THE BEST MEATLOAF AND POTATOES

Y’all, honest truth, this really is the best meatloaf recipe in the history of meatloaf recipes. It is incredibly flavorful and it uses exactly one pound of beef. A lot of meatloaf recipes call for 1 1/2 pounds of meat. But it makes it hard to buy the meat since most standard ground beef come in one pound packages. Not that I’m saying there aren’t ways around that but it’s just simpler, right?

Updated to add: I tested this recipe using the Instant Pot brand pressure cooker. Some folks have suggested that the brands of pressure cookers they own are different from the Instant Pot and require more cooking time. So having said that, please use your judgement based on your knowledge of the electric pressure cooker that you own. You may need to add additional time to your cooking.
