Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a multicooker on sauté mode until melted. Add bell pepper and onion. Cook, stirring, until softened and beginning to brown, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl, wipe out the insert and let cool slightly.

  • Meanwhile, stack 2 16-inch-long pieces of foil. Coat the top layer with cooking spray.

  • Add beef, breadcrumbs, egg, Worcestershire, mustard, garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper to the bowl with the vegetables. With clean hands, gently knead the mixture to combine; do not overmix. Pat the meat mixture into a loaf shape (about 7 by 4 inches) and transfer to the center of the prepared foil. Fold the edges of the foil up until just touching the loaf and crimp the corners to form a foil "pan" for the loaf to cook in. (The sides of the "pan" should be about 1 to 1 1/2 inches high and no longer than 8 inches, so it can fit in your multicooker.) Spread barbecue sauce on top of the meatloaf.

  • Place potatoes in a single layer in the multicooker. Pour broth (or water) into the pan and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place a trivet, with the handles facing up, on top of the potatoes. Place the meatloaf on top of the trivet. Close and lock the lid. Cook at high pressure for 20 minutes. Release the pressure and carefully lift the meatloaf out of the pan using the trivet handles. Set aside to rest.

  • Remove the potatoes to a medium bowl with a slotted spoon. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and parsley and stir gently until the butter has melted. Gently lift the meatloaf out of the pan and transfer to a cutting board. Cut into 6 slices and serve with the potatoes. (Discard the liquid left behind, or drizzle it over the slices for serving.)
