Instant Pot Hamburger Recipe Ingredients:


  • Peel and slice your onion and load into the instant pot. Add extra virgin olive oil and sauté for about 3 minutes or until your onion has softened.
  • Cancel the sauté.
  • Add a cup of water into the instant pot and stir the water with the onions.
  • Add the trivet over the onions.
  • Using silver foil add to each piece of silver foil a frozen hamburger, and a sprinkle of oregano, salt and pepper. Seal each silver foil packet and load the silver foil burger packets on top of the trivet.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 20 minutes on manual pressure cook.
  • Manually release pressure and remove the trivet and the silver foil hamburgers.
  • Add the tall trivet and the air fryer crisp lid basket.
  • Load the burgers onto the trivet, add a slice of cheese and some onions and cook for 2 minutes at 240c/460f.
  • Serve with salad garnish.



If you don’t have an air fryer crisplid, this is the one we recommend.
You can also add the hamburger buns and let the air fryer crisplid cook these too. They come out wonderfully crispy and it saves waiting for them to defrost.
For silver foil I recommend it to be triple the size of your frozen hamburger. As you want to be able to have some padding on it and for it to tightly wrap.
This frozen hamburger instant pot recipe is for 8 burgers. You can adjust it down to 4 or increase it to 10, while keeping the same cooking time.
