Cooking ground meats in the Instant Pot is a cinch. Okay, I wasn’t a believer at first either. Trust me! Place your water or broth in the bottom of your Instant Pot and use a trivet to place your meat on top. Season with Salt and Pepper is always recommended.
Let the Instant Pot do it’s magic, I promise you. It’s magic. In a few short minutes your Ground Turkey will be cooked. Remove your turkey, and discard the drippings and clean out your pan.
The pan will wipe out quickly and easily. Add your cooked ground turkey back to the pot and with a wooden spoon chop up the meat. It will fall apart.

Turn your Instant Pot to Saute’ and now add the remaining ingredients and stir. Remember to stay and watch your food while on Saute’ you don’t want anything to stick and burn.
