  • In the Instant Pot place into the pot the onion, garlic, tomato puree, olive oil and mustard. On the sauté setting cook for a minute or two or until the onions are soft.
  • Add ½ a litre of boiling water along with tinned tomatoes and 2 beef OXO cubes. Stir well and allow to bubble a little.
  • Add the seasoning, the mince and the macaroni and mix well.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set to sealing. Cook for 10 minutes on the manual setting.
  • After 10 minutes and it has beeped allow to rest for 5 minutes and this will soak up the juices and add to the flavour of the dish.
  • Take the lid off and add all the cheese and stir well.
  • Serve.


Normally when I make a cheese sauce I will mix soft cheese with whole milk and it will give a lovely creamy base. This would be just like I did in my alfredo sauce but because of the leftover stock no milk is needed in this recipe. However if your sauce is too thick just add a little milk when mixing in the cheese.
For mustard I usually use a little French mustard as English can be too strong for this dish.
You may find it very strange to see ½ a litre of macaroni pasta. This is because to make the pasta and water equal and easy to follow you want equal portions. I set my water to the ½ litre mark then refilled it with pasta to the same level as I placed the pasta in the pot.
We have found the best place to source ground beef to make Instant Pot Cheese Burger Macaroni Cheese is from ButcherBox. You even receive free bacon and $10 off your first order when you sign up with this link.
