Shape the ground beef into burger patties. Wrap each burger patty in foil.
Pour water in the Instant Pot and add the foil-wrapped burger patties.
Close the lid and turn the valve to Sealing position. Press the "Pressure Cook" or "Manual" button and set the time for 15 minutes on High pressure.
When Instant Pot is done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam.
Carefully remove the foil-wrapped burger patties from the Instant Pot with tongs, unwrap them from foil, sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
You can cook as many burgers as fit up to the "Max Fill" line, the water quantity and cooking time remain the same. To turn them into cheeseburgers, top each cooked burger patty with a slice of cheese and microwave for 30 seconds or until the cheese is melted.
