Best Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is one of the easiest and the most delicious recipes you can make in your Instant Pot. You start by browning the beef, after that, you add the mushrooms and green peppers.

Followed by the pasta and the broth to cook it all. Once the Instant Pot beeps, all you have to do is add the cheese. For better flavor and taste, you can extra cheese to the dish. Stir well and enjoy one of the creamiest and most delicious pasta dishes you have ever had.

This recipe does not get any easier. I love that you don’t have to pre-cook the pasta, I mean who has time for that? You add the uncooked pasta to the pot and cook it all together.

This Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is the perfect one-pot meal that you can make in about 30 minutes and it bursts with textures and flavors!

Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta Recipe Tips:

  • Use quality meat because a good meat-centered meal starts with quality meat. Preferably use organic beef for this meal.
  • Also, look for fresh meat that has a bright color, and about 15-20% fat content. Due to higher fat content, the meat gets great flavor and tenderness.
  • Browning the beef is essential, it will lock in the flavor and the beef juices and also elevate the meat flavor.
  • You don’t have to pre-cook the pasta for this recipe. Add the uncooked pasta to the pot and 5 minutes on HP will give you al-dente pasta, and 6 minutes will result in more well-cooked pasta.
  • For a spicier kick, add some red pepper flakes.
  • Similarly, I added provolone cheese. However, you can also use mozzarella or Swiss cheese.

How long do you cook pasta in the Instant Pot?

Pasta is cooked in an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cookers, usually between 4-6 minutes, depending on the recipe and type of pasta. Most of the time followed by a Quick Pressure Release.

Can I make this dish with other meats?

This dish can be made with any ground meats, such as chicken, turkey or pork. Similarly, the cooking time will still be the same if you use the same amount of ingredients.

How to store it?

  • If you have some leftovers, I recommend transferring the dish into an airtight container. Then, store it in the fridge for up to 3-4 days.
  • Also, you could freeze it. Prior to freezing, ensure the dish is completely cold, and freeze it up to 3 months. 

Tools/ingredients that I used to make the Best Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Recipe:

  • Instant Pot – I use it all the time, I have the 6 quarts one. It makes weeknight meals so much easier.

Instructions

  1. Set Instant Pot to Saute.
  2. Once the IP is hot melt the butter.
  3. Add the ground beef, let it cook without moving for about 1 minutes, to get a nice sear on it. After that, break it up using a wooden spoon as it cooks.
  4. Once the ground beef has browned, add salt, pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Stir to combine. Add onion, garlic, green pepper and mushrooms. Stir and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

  5. Add the ketchup and beef broth. Stir to combine. Scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooded spoon, to make sure bits are not stuck to it.

  6. Add pasta and stir to combine.

  7. Cover and seal the lid. Make sure the valve points to Sealed. Change setting to manual and adjust time to 5 minutes on High Pressure.
  8. Once Instant Pot beeps to show that it's done, do a quick release, by changing the position of the valve to Vent. Carefully remove cover and stir.

  9. Turn off the Instant Pot.
  10. Top with cheese, put the lid back on but don't seal. Allow a minute or two for cheese to start to melt. Stir to combine.
  11. Serve!

The Instant Pot Philly Cheesesteak Pasta looks absolutely amazing, but what if you don't have an Instant Pot? I apologize for asking a dumb question. Thanks, Catalina!! :-)

Reply

Its not stupid, not anyone has an instant pot, I will actually post a stove version soon :) you can make it on the stove using the same ingredients, follow the same steps, except using a cast iron pan or deeper sauce pan. After you add the pasta and the broth, cover and let it simmer on low-medium heat for 15-20 minutes. Stir every 4 minutes or so, so the pasta doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan. If the pasta absorbs all the liquid add a little more water. Once the pasta is cooked add the cheese and stir to combine.

Can this be made ahead of time and then baked? Thinking of taking to a friend that just had a baby and wanted to take it in a foil pan that won’t need to be returned.

Reply

You can make it ahead of time and layer it in a foil pan with layers of cheese.

Chris

Love this recipe, I make it a lot. Thanks! I usually substitute a cup of rice for the pasta, and if it comes out thin I add bread crumbs. Bread crumbs make it closer to a cheesesteak sub anyway so I think it's a good addition. Delish.

Beth Snelgrove

Not sure how I messed up but it’s very liquidy...more noodles perhaps?

Reply

Did you follow the recipe exactly? measuring the noodles is very important, as they absorb most of the liquid.

Reply

Toni

I think every Instant Pot is different so next time I will adjust the cooking time. My IP does not have a timer and I have not cooked pasta in it so my Philly Cheese Pasta was a bit over cooked. All in all, so delicious!

Reply

Lara

Made this tonight and it was so yummy!  I did find however, there was quite a bit of beef broth not absorbed so I just scooped out some and it was fine.  Delicious!

David

Made this yesterday Came out great,it's a keeper!

Reply

Chloe

Delish!!! Mine came out a little watery, my fault I didn't measure the noodles. But hey it left extra sauce to dip bread in, yum!! I was wondering if you have ever froze left overs and if it froze well? Thanks for the great recipe!

Reply

Laura Merle

can this be made in crockpot and what direction would you use. Or what about baking in oven

Reply

Hi, the recipe will have to be completely altered for a crockpot. sorry.

I made this for dinner last night. Generally I alter recipes by adding to or omitting ingredients. I will have to say I followed this recipe to the "T" and it was delicious! It was a big hit with my family!

The Philly Steak Pasta recipe was great, I made this tonight and it was easy and so delicious! I'm new with my IP and not a cook but I'm impressed with how great it turned out! Thanks!!!!!

Hi, just so I'm clear, you don't drain the ground beef after it's seared before adding the other ingredients?

Reply

yes, drain after you sear.

Had anyone doubled this in a 6qt IP? Just wondering...want to send leftovers back with our college kid. :)

Reply

Sandy

So yummy, I made this in my 8qt. I used rotini noodles 3 cups worth and followed the recipe I did 6 minutes and when I opened it I could see some noodles weren't totally cooked so I added another quarter cup of broth and set for 3 minutes but somewhere within that time I got a Burn notice. Did a quick release and when I opened it the noodles were cooked. My family polished It off and said recipe was a keeper. next time I'd like to double the batch.

Reply

This recipe is always a success, I am so happy that you enjoyed it. Yes, always keep in mind that if you add more noodles you will have to add more broth, otherwise you will get the Burn message.

Jamie Brackenbury

This was so yummy! I had to substitute cream of mushroom soup because I didn't have mushrooms. 6 minutes and no excess liquid. I added a block of softened cream cheese instead of grated. So creamy! I'm definitely adding this one to my list of favorites!

Reply

Jennifer

I made this tonight and only a few minor changes, no mushrooms (allergic) and I forgot to get beef broth so used Chicken. I added a little extra Wocestershire sauce. We all loved it. I would probably add a little more pepper next time, I felt it cooked down too much so I would add 1 larger or 2 medium peppers. This will definitely be made again and again in my house.

Kathleen

I want to double this recipe in my 8 quart. Do I do anything different.

Reply

just add an extra minute for cooking

Made this tonight and it was a hit. I was told to put it in the "BOOK". Everyone has a "book"...of go to in case of emergency recipes and/or one that you use often. Noticed the scallions as a topper in the pic. Solid choice. I left mushrooms sliced not diced. Also used processed cheese that could tell didn't want to melt as good. The only thing that got me a little was I hear someone say it's like a up scale hamburger helper. That hit home!! Thx for the recipe guys, will do again!!!

Reply

ScubaT

I would think you'd need to double everything wouldn't you?

Reply

Len

This looks yummy! I plan to make it for dinner one night this week. If I use 16oz of pasta, should I double the amount of liquid and will I need to increase the amount of time it cooks? Thank you kindly!

Reply

if you double the pasta you need to double the liquid, the cooking time should not be doubled, just add an extra minute or two.

Reply

Emily

This may be a dumb question. But do I need to drain the fat from the meat after browning?

Reply

Yes :)

Oh my goodness this was so easy and so DELICIOUS...I’m not the greatest cook in the world BUT with the Instapot I’m pretty darn close according to my hubby!! Next recipe...BRING on the cheesecake!!

What steps are needed if I want to double the recipe?

Reply

just double and cook one minute longer.

Clearly you used 2 different types of pasta. Why is that?

run out of the first one mid video lol

Aaron Hoydich

but it is still only 8oz of pasta total?

Jan Ebben

Hi, I use my instant pot so much that we ended up with 3 of them. Two of them came from thrift stores..too bad for the people that gave them up,to not know how handy they really are! This time of year it comes in really handy with making apple sauce!

Reply

Hi Jan, yes the IP/Pressure Cooker is definitely one of our most used kitchen tools. We have more than 5 as well, and love every single one)))

Reply

Ed

I am wondering the same. 8 oz of pasta doesn't seem like much.

Lynne

I don’t have an instant pot. Could this be made in a crock pot?

hi, sorry, I have never attempted it in the crockpot.
