You can make frozen burgers without grilling or using any oil by using the Instant Pot! These Instant Pot steamed burger patties are perfectly cooked – so tender and juicy!
This recipe is so simple and only takes 20 minutes! You can have dinner ready in no time!
Or make a big batch of these burger patties to serve for a party or kids get together. The Instant Pot takes all the work out of cooking.
I like to keep a bag of these burgers in the freezer so I can just pull them out when I am in the mood for a burger!
Beef is also a great source of protein and iron!
Instant Pot Frozen Burgers
These are perfect for when you want a burger but don’t want to go through the trouble of turning on the grill or the oven.
All you need to do is get your burger toppings ready to go! You can eat these burgers however you like. I like mine on a bun with all the fixings. Yum!
I used all natural beef burgers that are 85% lean and 15% fat. You can use any type of beef burger you prefer!
These are steamed burgers so they won’t be as brown as grilled burgers. But, they will be just as juicy and flavorful!
How to Cook Instant Pot Frozen Burgers
Step one is to get your Instant Pot out and place the trivet inside. If you don’t have the trivet, you can still make this recipe as it is not required!
Next, add in 1 cup of water to the pot. Then place in the frozen burgers. No need to defrost – just use as is! I used 4 patties but you can cook as many as fit comfortably in your instant pot.
Next set the Instant Pot to sealing and pressure cook on high for 20 minutes.
When done, use the quick release to let the air pressure release. Remove carefully as the burgers will be hot. Serve and enjoy!
