You can make this in your Instant Pot as well especially if you have a Mealthy CrispLid. The Mealthy Crisplid is an air fryer lid that fits 6 and 8 quart Instant Pots and it can be used to melt and brown the cheese on top of your casserole. Check out my MEALTHY CRISPLID REVIEW here!

How do I make this beef, cheese, and rice casserole in my pressure cooker?

First, gather your ingredients. This is a great recipe to add LOTS of different vegetables.  used onions, peppers, garlic and frozen spinach in this version. Chopped celery and mushrooms would be FANTASTIC as well. What veggies will you add when you make this? Let me know in the comments!

What kind of ground beef is best to use?

I used lean ground beef with only 7% fat. If you use beef with more fat you will have to drain the fat after you brown it. Well, you don’t have to drain it, that’s up to you. I would drain the excess fat.

Ground turkey or chicken would make great substitutions for ground beef in this recipe. Cut the amount of meat in half and increase the vegetables if you like.
