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.

My partner is a bit picky with his pasta, and the ingredients initially had him wary. The celery and umami elements all come together beautifully, and it won him over. It is now a monthly regular rotating recipe for us. Thank you!5 stars

This was a definite hit in terms of flavor, but because I have to cook the pasta separately (one in the family needs gluten-free pasta) it should probably be noted somewhere that you’ll want to reduce the amount of liquid needed here, otherwise you end up pouring much of the sauce down the drain.5 stars

Awesome recipe. I cooked the spaghetti in the pressure cooker and found if I use slightly more expensive “imported” pasta it comes out al-dente. Other mainstream spaghetti brands sold in the US, even those imported on Italy, cook much faster and go to mush if cooked in this way.
So spend the extra $1.
Used a Fissler pressure cooker.5 stars

Hello! I was wondering if there is a non-alcoholic substitution is sherry wine. I don’t have wine on hand. Thank you!

LOVE this recipe! I’ve made it several times now and it turns out delicious every time.

Quick question for you 2: if we were to double the serving size, would we have to change any temperature or timing settings?5 stars

This was awesome! I didn’t have celery, mushrooms or sherry so I left them out but otherwise followed the recipe as is. I don’t have an instant pot, but I have a Salton pressure cooker model PC1048. Pressure cooked on HIGH for 6 minutes. My fussy kids loved it! Will be adding this to my meal rotation. Thank you sooo much!5 stars

I would like to try this recipe but sorry I don’t know what is Sherry wine. Is it possible to give me the name of your sherry wine? so probably I will be able to find it here in Quebec Canada. Thank you

This is a very easy and delicious recipe. It would be helpful to have comments on smaller sized portions of ingredients (3QT); or if adaptable.5 stars
