  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    In the instant pot or electric pressure cooker, combine the beef broth, chili powder, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, salt, and cayenne pepper.
  3. Step 3

    Add the fresh or frozen ground beef.
  4. Step 4

    Lock the lid into place and set at High Pressure for 3 minutes for fresh ground beef and for 5 minutes for frozen ground beef. When the cook time ends, use the quick pressure release.
  5. Step 5

    Remove the lid and stir the ground beef mixture. At this point the ground beef will not be fully cooked and the mixture will appear watery.

    Set the instant pot or electric pressure cooker to the sauté setting and cook the rest of the way, stirring frequently, until the water evaporates and the beef is browned. This will take about 5 minutes more.
