  1. Peel potatoes and cut into quarters. Place on the bottom of the Instant Pot
  2. Scrape and cut carrots into chunks. Place on the bottom of the Instant Pot with the potatoes.

  4. Place the meatloaf on top of the rack in the Instant Pot and secure the lid.
  5. Make sure that the steam release is closed and turn pressure cooker to Manual mode for 25 minutes. Once finished cooking, use the quick release method to let the steam escape. Check meatloaf for internal temperature of 155 degrees.
  6. Take the meatloaf out, let it cool for a few minutes, and then slice.
