  1. Turn on the saute function in your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and add the oil and then cook the onions and bell peppers until soft, takes about 5 minutes.

  2. Turn off the saute function.

  3. Add the garlic, salt, sugar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and stir well. 

  4. Next, add chicken broth, apple cider vinegar and stir in the ground beef, make sure you add it in broken up into pieces, not in one big slab. Then add the tomato paste on the top and stir.

  5. Lock the lid, turn the steam vent to 'sealing' and using the 'manual' or 'pressure cook' button, adjust it to cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.

  6. When the cook time time is up allow the pressure to drop on its own (NPR - natural pressure release) for 10-12 minutes, then release the rest of the pressure and open the lid.

  7. After you open the lid use a couple forks or this meat chopper tool to break up the meat some more, then add the tomato sauce and ketchup and stir well.

  8. Your Instant Pot Sloppy Joes will still be fairly liquid at this point, I find it's much more flavorful if you let it simmer on a low heat (I chose the lowest saute setting on the Instant pot) until the liquid reduces and it thickens up a bit, It took 15 minutes for mine to thicken.

  9. serve hot over toasted gluten free burger buns.
