Instant Pot Turkey Burger Recipe

Instant Pot turkey burgers are an easy and healthy meal to make. All you need is ground turkey and some spices and your meal is ready in less than 30 minutes.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds ground turkey meat
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon parsley, chopped or dried
  • 4 hamburger buns

Instructions

  1. Portion meat into 4 equal parts. Burgers will shrink in the instant pot so flatten them to be bigger than your bun.
  2. Season each burger and wrap it in foil sealing it closed
  3. Add one cup of water to the instant pot and place burgers on a trivet. Close the lid and seal the pressure valve.
  4. Pressure cook on high for 15 minutes to make sure meat comes to 165°. Cook for longer as needed.
  5. Manually release the pressure, unwrap the burgers and assemble with your favorite toppings.

Notes

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.
