There are those who will think this post is utter blasphemy. That's ok. For those of us who will try anything once, this is worth trying. Cooking a hamburger in an Instant Pot may seem like a crazy idea. Everyone knows a burger is best grilled, right? That may be true, but what if you don't have a grill? What if all you have in your freezer is some frozen ground beef patties and people are hungry? Then what?
The Instant Pot to the rescue!
As I've said before, the Instant Pot is a great tool for busy families. You can cook meat from frozen so the question "What's for dinner?" becomes less scary to answer. You can literally pull something out of the freezer and in many cases, have a delicious dinner on the table in an hour or less.
That was my issue the night I decided to try hamburgers in my Instant Pot. I looked on Youtube and found a video. The next thing I knew, I was pulling the hamburger patties out of the freezer and getting to work.
I decided to wrap these burgers in foil because I was afraid they'd fall apart if they were just stacked on top of each other in the Instant Pot. I added some dehydrated onion(you could just chop some fresh) and salt and pepper to the frozen patties and wrapped it in foil.
I had seven frozen burgers, so I did this seven times.
