Instant Pot Shepard's Pie

What You'll Need:

lean ground beef onion garlic Worcestershire dried thyme Beef better than bouillon  water  salt and pepper russet potatoes milk butter  frozen veggies

Add Beef + Seasoning


Add the ground beef to the Instant Pot liner. Break it up a bit so it is not a big chunk. Add onion, garlic, Worcestershire, thyme, bullion, and water (or broth).

Add Potatoes


Place the potatoes on your steamer and place the steamer basket on top of the trivet.



Set to high pressure for 10 minutes. When the pressure cycle ends, let the pot naturally depressurize for 5 minutes, then quick release the remaining pressure.

Add other Ingredients


Push the saute button and break up the beef. Add in the frozen veggies and gently combine.

Assemble + Broil


Assemble your Shepard's pie into desired baking dish putting the beef and veggie mixture on the bottom and the potatoes on top.

Lazy Shepard's pie can be done all at once, yet separate in your Instant Pot, using the pot in pot method where the beef cooks in the liner, and the potatoes are steamed above the beef - all at once!
