  • 2 tbsp avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1.5 lbs ground beef*
  • 2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp sea salt + more to taste
  • 2 green bell pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 red bell pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 14 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 15 oz can tomato sauce
  • 3 cups beef broth**
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 cups cauliflower rice***
  • 1/4 cup shredded parmesan (optional)
  • fresh basil (for garnish)


  1. Select saute on the Instant Pot. Coat the bottom of the pot with oil, then add the onion and garlic. Saute for 3 to 4 minutes, then add the ground beef. Continue to cook until the beef is no longer pink, about 3 to 4 minutes. Select cancel.

  2. Top the beef mixture with salt and Italian seasoning. Now add the bell peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, beef broth, and red wine vinegar.

  3. Secure the lid with the steam vent in the sealed position. Select manual or pressure, and cook on high pressure for 6 minutes.

  4. Use a quick release and remove the lid. Stir in the cauliflower rice. Serve hot and garnish with parmesan cheese (if using) and fresh basil.

Recipe Notes

*Can also use ground turkey or sausage

**Can use chicken broth in place of beef

***I use frozen cauliflower rice. If making your own, you will need to chop a small head of cauliflower into small florets and pulse in a food processor.
