  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 lbs ground beef I use 90/10 ground sirloin
  • 2 tsps kosher salt or to taste
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 4 cups unsalted beef stock
  • 2 cans cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 lb elbow pasta
  • 1 cup sour cream


  • Turn the Instant Pot to 'Sauté' and allow it to heat up.
  • Add the olive oil and sauté the onion and garlic until the onion begins to turn translucent.
  • Add the ground beef to the pot and brown.
  • Once the ground beef is fully cooked, turn off the 'Sauté' feature.
  • Add the salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and corn and mix well.
  • Add the beef stock and mix well.
  • Add the 2 cans of soup and mix well.
  • Add the elbow pasta to the pot and just push them down into the liquid but do not mix them.
  • Close the Instant Pot and set it to 'Manual' or 'Pressure Cook' High Pressure for 3 minutes. Remember to set the pressure release valve to sealing. Once cooking is done, allow for a 2-minute Natural Pressure Release. Release any remaining pressure once the two minute NPR has completed and open the pot.
  • Add the sour cream and mix all the ingredients well.
  • Top each individual serving with Parmesan cheese if desired.
