Do you ever forget to thaw your frozen ground beef and realize that dinner will be an absolute disaster?

Because this probably happens to me at least once a week. I always have some frozen ground beef to use up except I never remember to thaw it in time!

But now you don’t have to worry about any thawing at all. Nope. No thawing, no worries. You can use your ground beef and go straight from freezer to your Instant Pot.

You just need TWO 1 pound frozen bricks of ground beef here (totaling 2 pounds). I DO NOT RECOMMEND THROWING IN A 2 POUND BRICK AS ONE PIECE – it will not cook in the allotted time here.

So two frozen bricks, some seasonings and boom, you’re done. The IP will cook it absolutely perfectly with your homemade taco seasoning. And when you open up your pressure cooker, make sure you let it simmer for 5-6 minutes until it gets real saucy, breaking up the meat as it cooks.

Serve in warmed tortillas or crispy taco shells because dinner is served just like that.
