How to make hamburgers in an Instant Pot
You can jump to the recipe card for full ingredients & instructions!
- Mix together the ingredients for the burgers.
- Shape into four patties.
- Wrap each patty tightly in foil.
- Add water to the Instant Pot and place the burgers on a trivet.
- Cook on high pressure and quick release.
- Top with cheese slices if using and place into buns with your favorite toppings.
These burgers are best served as soon as they are cooked, but you can make up the burger mix up to a day ahead of time and keep it covered in the fridge. Cooked hamburgers will keep well in the fridge for 4 days and can be reheated in the oven.
Any other ground meats like bison, chicken or turkey can be used in this recipe. It’s best not to use extra lean meats. If using chicken or turkey, use and instant read thermometer to check that your burgers are cooked through.
Absolutley! You can double or even triple this burger recipe! It’s totally fine to stack the burgers in the Instant Pot, so they are a great option if you are feeding a crowd!
Standard burger buns work great, but I love to use brioche buns for a bit of extra flavor and touch of sweetness. For a low carb dinner, they work great in lettuce wraps.
These Instant Pot hamburgers are great served with potato, veggie and salad side dishes. try them with:
- Baked Sweet Potato Fries
- Shoestring Fries
- Air Fryer Corn on the Cob
- Cheesy Broccoli Salad
- Creamy Coleslaw
- Crispy Homemade Fries
Whether you are serving them for an easy weeknight meal after a busy day, or serving them up to a crowd, there’s no bad time for these juicy burgers!
- Don’t overwork the burger mixture. The ingredients should be just combined. Overworking can lead to tough and chewy burgers.
- Try this seasoning mix for burger patties for even more flavor!
- Be sure to wrap the burgers well in the foil. This will keep the steam in so that they cook through.
- Thicker burgers may need a couple of extra minutes to cook through, and thinner burgers will require slightly less cooking time.
This is such a quick and convenient way of cooking the most delicious homemade burgers!
