Instant Pot Bolognese is made with pork, beef and veal so it’s rich, tender and meaty and takes just over an hour in the pressure cooker.

Why This Recipe Works

It’s a time saving recipe! Normally, bolognese sauce is slow cooked on the stovetop for hours so the meat gets tender and the flavors fuse. The Instant Pot does this in just over an hour.


Pancetta Ground pork Ground beef Ground veal Onion Garlic Celery stalk Olive oil Tomato paste Red wine Crushed tomatoes Chicken stock Thyme Oregano Parsley Sugar Red pepper Black pepper Salt Unsalted butter Cream

Turn the Instant Pot to the sauté setting and brown the pancetta for about 3-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.


Add the olive oil and sauté the onions, garlic and celery for about 3-5 minutes, until softened and starting to lightly brown.

Add the beef, pork and veal and brown, using a spoon to break up any big chunks.

Add the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes.
