  • 2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons dried minced onions
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 3/4 cup organic low sodium beef broth
  • 1 15-ounce can low sodium black beans


  • Press SAUTE button on Instant Pot, and when it reads hot, add the olive oil and ground beef
  • Break beef up with wooden spoon or spatula, and cook until no longer pink. Drain fat, if necessary. Add spices, and stir. 
  • Hit Cancel, and pour in beef broth. Add black beans over beef. Place lid on pressure cooker, turn vent to Sealing, and hit PRESSURE COOK for 5 minutes
  • Pot will take a few minutes to reach pressure, then begin counting down and cook for 5 minutes. When pot beeps, turn vent for a quick release or do manual release to keep warm until serving
  • When pin drops, remove lid, stir meat mixture, and serve. To reduce liquid, hit SAUTE, and cook for 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced


Recipe was made in 6-quart Instant Pot electric pressure cooker. Add more water for 8 quart.
You can use a packet of taco seasoning instead of spices.
