Step 1

Place a trivet or steam basket inside the pressure cooker pot.

Step 2

Add one cup of water or the minimum liquid requirement for your pressure cooker. I used a 6 quarts pressure cooker.

Step 3

Add frozen ground beef on top of the trivet, no need to break it down. If you have longer pieces that don't fit, break them in 2 so you can place them on the trivet.

Step 4

Place the lid and lock it, make sure to close the sealing valve.

Step 5

Select 35 minutes of pressure cooking on high.

Step 6

Once the program is done, do a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release, after that open the valve to release the remaining pressure.

Step 7

Using an instant read kitchen thermometer, take the temperature of your meat, it should be about 160F.

Step 8

I also like to poke the center and see if its still raw, if the meat is still undercooked:Option 1: just close the lid back, seal the valve, and cook for another 5 minutes oh high pressure with a 10 minute Natural Pressure Release, check again and repeat if necessary.Option 2: discard the liquid, select sauté mode, once hot add one tablespoon of oil, add the beef, break it down and brown it until done. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 9

If you used Option 1: Once the beef is done, remove it with tongs and add it to a large bowl.

Step 10

Use a wooden spoon to crumble it, season with salt, pepper and taco seasoning if using. If the beef seems a bit dry, add 1 tablespoon of warm beef broth and mix.
