Instant Pot Beef Lasagna
– 1 lb. ground beef – 1 24 oz. jar marinara sauce – 1 cup mozzarella cheese – ½ cup Parmesan – 1 small onion chopped – 2 Tbsp. garlic minced – 1 Tbsp. garlic powder – 1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning – 1 Tbsp. olive oil – salt and pepper to taste – oven-ready lasagna noodles
Bechamel Sauce Recipe – 2 Tbsp. butter – 2 Tbsp. flour – 2 cups milk – 1 sprinkle salt
Set Instant Pot to saute mode. Add oil and beef. Cook until it just begins to brown, then add in garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion and minced garlic. Cook until onions are translucent and beef is browned
Add in marinara sauce and stir until fully mixed. Then, pour the mixture into a separate bowl and clean out the inside of your Instant Pot.
Melt butter in a pan. Sprinkle in flour. Cook until the mixture just begins to brown, then pour in milk while whisking. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens. Finish it with salt.
Line your springform pan or round baking dish with parchment paper. Add an even layer of meat sauce.
Add a layer of oven-ready lasagna noodles. Then top with more meat sauce over the noodles.
Spread ⅓ of your bechamel sauce over the meat sauce.
Top with a handful of mozzarella cheese and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
Repeat the layers by starting again with the meat sauce. Layer in this order: meat, bechamel, shredded cheese, lasagna noodles.
On the final layer, top with noodles, then your remaining bechamel sauce and shredded cheese.
Cover lasagna tightly in foil. Create a sling by folding a long sheet of foil into a rectangular strip. Use this strip as a "handle".
Add water to your Instant Pot. Place the trivet in the pot, then add the covered lasagna with the sling underneath.
Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. Quick release, then serve.
