Thai Basil Beef – Instant Pot Ground Beef Recipes


Hi, I’m Angela and this is instant pot life. Today we’re making Thai basil beef. To start, we need to turn on your instant pot and select saute. So while this heats up we’re going to cut up our hot chili. The hottest part of the chilies are the seeds so when you do cut it up with a knife, do use plastic gloves, you just don’t want to get that hot stuff into your eyes. What I like to do is use scissors. I don’t even have to touch the spiciness. Alright, so I’m going to put in the oil first, Just throw in the garlic and now to cut up the hot chili. So it’s optional how many hot chilis you want to put in. I’m just going to put in one because I can’t handle spicy that well. This is how it looks inside. Be careful with the spicy fumes, it does go up the nose and in the eyes. Once that’s nicely browned, we are going to add in the ground beef. Saute until the beef is partially cooked. So now we’ll add the soy sauce and the oyster sauce Stir it around, We’re going to turn off the saute here. Add your thai basil This is how it looks again. Close the lid. Select manual high pressure cooking for 3 minutes. So this should pressurize relatively quickly because we already turned it on and had it on saute. And when it is done you can add some salt and pepper to your liking. In the meantime, while this is cooking, please add any comments below and subscribe to my channel for more recipes. You will need the following ingredients: 10 to15 Thai basil leaves, 1 – 2 hot chili peppers, 1 tablespoon of oil, 3 cloves of garlic – minced. 1 to 1.5 pounds of ground beef, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, and 2 tablespoons of soy sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. I don’t actually use any for my recipe. So it’s done. We’re going to do a quick release and take it out and take a look. First, need to vent it, now you can open it. Alright, time to take it out and have a try! Before plating I like to remove any excess oil. Enjoy!

    I've never seen Thai basil at my market. I wonder if sweet basil that's commonly sold on the East coast would be OK.

    Hi Angela! I've got your roast potatoes in my pot right now and watching the more of your videos while they cook. This is one of my favorite dishes (though I usually prefer it with chicken) and I'm wondering if it turns out any differently in the instant pot over making it on the stove top. It seems like between getting to pressure and venting it takes the same amount of time. Now if we can cook perfect jasmin rice in a pan in the pot at the same time, that might convince me!

    Hello my friends !! 🙂
    I love my Instant Pot ❤️, I just got the sweetest gift – thank you so much! 🎁:) , but I am posting to show you an option to direct the steam in the direction you choose, directs the steam to wherever you need it to go, PROTECT your WOOD CABINET away from moisture, you’ll prevent condensation that damages wood and causes mold. – do NOT put anything over the vent – it can void your warranty as steam needs to come out – not be blocked. Stop using PVC or plastic!
    This is a FOOD GRADE silicone steam release accessory for all sizes, DUO models, SMART and MINI and COSORI with FREE GIFTS, Ebook (Electric Pressure Cooker RECIPES), and oven mitt 🎁:).I recommend this gadget👌. I am happy. 🙂 These go very quickly..
