Best Instant Pot American Goulash Recipe

With three teens to feed on a daily basis, we are always looking for simple recipes that satisfy everyone's hunger and taste buds. This Instant Pot American Goulash recipe really delivers. This is a one pot recipe, so there is very little mess to clean up once you are done cooking. Our kids all love the dish; it is sort of like a homemade, really good hamburger helper with pasta amplified. Our American Goulash is chock full of  sustenance for the body as well; you will find real tomatoes and onions, herbs, beef stock and more in this one pot recipe. We hope that you love this Best Instant Pot American Goulash Recipe.

A few notes about the recipe; We made ours in a 8 qt machine, but the recipe should fit in a 6 qt pressure cooker (just barely) as well. The elbow pasta that we used normally has a 7 minute cook time. One minute of pressure cooking (plus the time needed for the pressure cooker to come to temp) was perfect for our pasta. If the pasta you use happens to be thicker (requiring a longer cook time) follow the directions as written below, but allow the American Goulash to rest for a few minutes before serving. The pasta will absorb a bit more liquid in this time, and will come out great…I promise. Finally, if you are new to pressure cooking and are in need of a machine, check out the 8 qt Instant Pot Duo; it will serve you well. Now let's get cooking!
