Homemade in minutes

Maybe I should say simply homemade (who remembers the show on food network?) Since this is not 100% homemade.

After a busy week and a long work day the last thing you want to do is to slave over a hot stove, them eat dinner, then clean the kitchen…. nope doesnt sound like my kind of evening.

Instead of giving in and ordering take out, getting fast food, we decided to fix a home cooked meal and it took literally 30 minutes from start to finish.

Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes


  1. 1 lb ground sirloin
  2. 1/2 onion diced
  3. 1 tablespoon veg oil
  4. 1/3 cup Italian bread crumbs
  5. 1 egg
  6. 2 cloves garlic minced
  7. 2 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
  8. 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  9. 1.5 cups beef broth

Create Salisbury steak

  1. In a large mixing bowl mix the ground sirloin, egg, breadcrumbs, Worcestershire sauce, Montreal steak seasoning, garlic
  2. Divide the meat into 4 equal parts
  3. Make out 4 patties

Instant pot time

  1. Turn it on to saute
  2. When hot place 1 tbsp of oil in pot
  3. Do not bother them leave them for 3 minutes
  4. Turn the steaks and repeat step 3
  5. Remove steaks
  6. Place onion in pot(yes it will have steak residue this is a good thing)
  7. Saute onion for 4 minutes
  8. Add beef broth
  9. Place the simmer basket(or the shelf that comes with some)
  10. Place the steaks inside a foil basket on top of the shelf
  11. Put the lid on and turn to pressure cook for 5 minutes
  12. While this is cooking make mashed potatoes(used instant… love instant potatoes especially with rich gravy)
  13. Mashed potatoes take 5 minutes in microwave
  14. Instant pot goes off let it naturally release for 5 minutes then manually release pressure
  15. Take the foil out leave any juice in the instant pot
  16. Add cornstarch and stir this will instantly thicken to become gravy
  17. Serve on top of a bed of mashed potatoes and drizzle gravy on top


ou can of course make yummy real mashed potatoes if you wish and have time but the instant ones work perfectly with this dish especially doctored up like we did!
