Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers

A super quick and fun recipe for making Instant Pot Stuffed Peppers. No, really, it's super easy and, if you get the kids involved in the making, they might even eat it. Maybe throw some cheese on top. That helps with the kids.
Servings 6


  • 6 medium size green bell peppers
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 lb ground pork
  • 1 medium size onion diced small
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 cups finely chopped raw cauliflower
  • 1 cup finely chopped raw carrot
  • 1 can 6 oz tomato paste
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano flakes
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 cup uncooked rice
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 cups chicken broth


  1. Prepare the green bell peppers by cutting the tops off (save the tops) and removing all the seeds and membranes.
  2. Set ½ of the peppers open side up into the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  3. Prepare the other bell peppers on a plate--you’ll place them in the Instant Pot on top of the other peppers, once filled.
  4. Put the remaining ingredients EXCEPT the chicken broth in a large bowl and mix, breaking up the ground beef and pork and making sure everything is combined well.
  5. Fill the peppers with this mixture, then set the pepper 'tops' back on the peppers. The peppers should be over-flowing with the meat mixture, so the top will just teeter on the top of the mixture, it won't fit down all the way.
  6. Pour the chicken broth into the Instant Pot around the peppers.
  7. Set Instant Pot to High Pressure, cover and cook for 15 minutes.
  8. Natural release.
