EASY INSTANT POT AMERICAN GOULASH
This Easy Instant Pot Goulash is a one pot meal. Ground beef, spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, onion, garlic and macaroni noodles. All topped with cheese! Also called Slumgullion, American Chop Suey or Johnny Marzetti (depending on where you’re from.) 🙂
WHAT SIZE PRESSURE COOKER DO I NEED?
For this recipe, I am using an 6.5-quart pressure cooker (specifically the Ninja Foodi). It makes a lot! You can freeze any leftovers. Don’t have an electric pressure cooker? No problem! Check out my STOVETOP GOULASH RECIPE.
CAN I MAKE GOULASH ALL IN ONE POT?
My favorite thing about this recipe is it is made all in one pot! Who doesn’t love a good, filling, comforting one pot meal? I am all about reducing the dirty dish pile! A couple of tips: use lean ground beef. Most lean ground beef doesn’t need to be drained of excess grease and will keep you from dirtying up a strainer. Use fresh garlic. There are so few ingredients in this dish that fresh garlic really deepens that homemade taste!
