Stove Top Meatloaf

I like to use 85/15% lean hamburger for this Stove Top Meatloaf recipe, but if you prefer more fat content in your hamburger it will work just fine. The 85/15% gives just enough fat to add to the flavor, keep the Meatloaf moist and not be heavy on the fat when it’s all done.

Instant Pot Meatloaf

When making this recipe in the Instant Pot, mix up the Meatloaf as you normally would and place your Meatloaf mixture into a springform pan or a 2 tier accessory pan. Always wrap the bottom of your springform pan so no liquid leaks in or out. Pressure cook for 25 minutes with a 10 minute natural release. Then baste with sauce. You can either serve it or throw it in the oven under Broil for about 90 seconds to caramelize the sauce or not. Either way it’s delicious.

Always make sure your internal temperature reaches 165F degrees for proper consumption.
