Instant Pot Beef And Macaroni #Recipe – Only 5 Ingredients!

Instant Pot Beef And Macaroni Recipe From Val's Kitchen

One of the great things about the Instant Pot is that using it is pretty simple. This particular recipe is affordable, calls for only 5 ingredients (not counting water) and has virtually no steps involved to make. The final dish is sort of like a pasta stew, but I wouldn’t really call it a stew because of how few ingredients it has. Everyone loved it and it’s been added to the growing collection of dishes that have been requested again. Here’s how I made it.
