The Instant Pot needs to come to pressure before the cooking time starts, similar to an oven that needs to preheat. The cooking time doesn't actually start until pressure builds, which can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, sometimes longer depending on how full the pot is and how much liquid there is inside. Once it reaches pressure the Instant Pot will beep, and the cook time will begin to count down. Please, make sure to consider that extra time when planning your meal.

How would I adjust for unthawed (still frozen) ground beef?

Hi Kelly, the ground beef is cooked first on the sauté mode, so I would just make sure it's cooked though before locking the lid and starting the pressure cooker.
