  • Yield: 8 1x


1 pound grass fed ground beef

1 small onion, diced

1 garlic clove, diced

1 pepper (green, red, yellow or orange, or a combination)

1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced

1 can of diced tomatoes

1 can of black beans (omit if Paleo or Whole 30)

1 chipotle pepper (from a can, use one and save the rest for later)

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 teaspoon oregano

1 teaspoon rosemary


Using the saute function on the Insta-Pot, brown the beef.

Remove the beef from the heat and drain most of the fat.  Add the mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, oregano and rosemary.  Saute until fragrant and al dente.  Add the garlic and saute for one minute more.

Turn off the saute function and add the beef back in, the beans (if using), the chipotle pepper, salt and cumin.

Set the Insta-Pot to the high pressure setting for 25 minutes.

Once the timer goes off, either wait until the pressure self releases or use the quick release valve to release the pressure.
