I have a special love for lasagna and spaghetti bolognese since I was a kid.

There’s just something about the intense combination of flavors from the ground meat and tomato sauce that really makes my taste buds dance.

This Umami Instant Pot Spaghetti Bolognese is a recipe I couldn’t resist devouring over and over and over again…

Every bite of this Instant Pot Spaghetti Bolognese is super flavorful, jam-packed with umami ingredients.

Umami, the fifth taste, also known as the pleasant savory taste.

How can we say no to that?! 😀

The combination of flavors in this Instant Pot Recipe works because the flavors from basil and beef match extremely well with the tomato paste. Plus, the pinch of oregano gives it a touch of traditional Italian flavors.

More so, pressure cooking the spaghetti bolognese had forced the complex flavors into the pasta as if the spaghetti was made of the delicious umami sauce! yum~

Have fun & enjoy this Umami Spaghetti Bolognese in Instant Pot~

Ingredients

  • pound (300g) spaghetti
  • ½ pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion , sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 rib celery , chopped
  • 8 white mushrooms , sliced (optional)
  • Sherry wine
  • A pinch dried oregano
  • A pinch dried basil
  • Kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil , divided

Chicken Stock Mixture

Instructions

  • Make Chicken Stock Mixture: Combine unsalted chicken stock, water, tomato paste, light soy sauce, fish sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in a glass measuring cup.
  • Prepare Instant Pot Pressure Cooker: Heat up your pressure cooker (Instant Pot: press the Sauté button), wait until it says HOT. Then, add 1 tbsp olive oil in the pot. Ensure to coat the oil over the whole bottom of the pot.
  • Brown Ground Beef: Season the ground beef with kosher salt and black pepper. Partially cook and brown the ground beef for roughly 3 to 4 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • Saute Vegetables: Add 1 tbsp olive oil to the pot. Add onion, then season with kosher salt + black pepper. Cook until the onions are softened and brown. Then add garlic and stir until fragrant. Add chopped celery, mushroom, and a pinch of kosher salt + black pepper, then cook for 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Deglaze Instant Pot: Add a dash of sherry wine to fully deglaze the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Then allow the wine to reduce.
  • Pressure Cook Spaghetti Bolognese: Add in Chicken Stock Mixture, dried oregano, and basil. *Pro Tip: Taste and season here because it'll be harder to season after cooking as the sauce will be absorbed by the spaghetti. 
    Add in ground beef, then add spaghetti by splitting them in half (or you can submerge spaghetti in warm water prior to pressure cooking to soften them). 
    Pressure cook at High Pressure for 6 minutes, then 5 minutes Natural Release.
  • Serve Instant Pot Spaghetti: Mix well and serve immediately. Enjoy~ 🙂

Recipe Notes:

Al Dente Spaghetti: If you prefer al dente spaghetti, cook the spaghetti separately with a pot on stovetop (detailed instructions).
Prevent Spaghetti From Sticking: Ensure to submerge all the spaghetti into the sauce before closing the lid to cook.
Mixing Tomato Paste: Mixing 156 ml tomato paste with 3 cups of liquid should be completely safe. However, avoid mixing the tomato paste in if you are afraid of scorching.

Instant Pot Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe (Pressure Cooker Spaghetti Bolognese) Ingredients

Instant Pot Spaghetti Bolognese Recipe Tips:

1. How to Cook Al Dente Spaghetti:

This Spaghetti Bolognese in Instant Pot is super easy and convenient to make. Plus, you have fewer dishes to wash! But, if you prefer al dente spaghetti, cook the spaghetti separately with these steps:

  1. Cook the spaghetti for 5 minutes with a pot on stovetop over medium-high heat.
  2. Remove the spaghetti and drain well.
  3. Open Instant Pot lid. Heat up the sauce (Instant Pot: Saute button), then add spaghetti in the meat sauce. Cook for roughly 5 minutes until the bolognese sauce is cloaking the spaghetti and the sauce is reduced to your desired consistency.

2. Prevent Spaghetti From Sticking: 

It’s critical to ensure to submerge all the spaghetti into the sauce before closing the lid to cook.

Hello,
This looks so good! I want to make for the return to school this week. I’m curious, why do you say, “not low sodium soy sauce”..?

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!! Super delicious and ,oh, so easy! Hubby had three – 3!!! – servings last night! I have never seen him eat so much pasta in one sitting. And today he asked if he could have the leftovers for lunch and, yes, for dinner, too.
I used 1.3 lbs of ground turkey instead of ground beef (we almost never eat beef at home) and omitted the mushrooms (sigh) as hubby does not like them. Thank you again for your wonderful recipes, Amy & Jacky. Your recipes make IP cooking foolproof.
Best regards,
FE

Easy tasty recipe.
I did reduce the liquid to 1 cup stock, 1 cup water and added a tin of chopped tomatoes and that liquid. Also added some chilli flakes.
Used wholewheat spaghetti and that cooked perfectly in tthe prescribed time.

Followed this recipe exactly but the sauce turned way too runny. Not sure what I did wrong. What is the best way to thicken up the sauce when it turns out like that. I sautéed it for a bit after it was done cooking but that did little to thicken it up. The taste was amazing though. Also I cooked the spaghetti on the stovetop as I am picky about my pasta. Thanks.

Delicious!!! I used frozen mirepoix mix because I didn’t feel like cutting vegetables and extra Worcestershire because I ran out of fish sauce. We loved it so much we went back for “another little taste” and then “just another little taste”.

I *adore* this recipe! The best spaghetti I’ve ever had. I’m single, and made this in the 6 qt pot planning to freeze the leftovers, but it was so tasty I had a hard time setting any aside. I wanted to eat it every night!

When you do the natural release, should the pot be on keep warm? Or should it be totally off? I’m a newbie to the instapot! Thanks!

This is the best recipe ever! I substituted reconstututed dried morel mushrooms for a little more umami kick… I’ve made it about 5 times now. Definitely a favorite at our house which includes grandpa (a italianophile and food snob) and 8 year old.
