With this Instant Pot Bolognese Sauce recipe, you can now enjoy your favourite sauce quicker, thanks to the reduced cooking time allowed by the pressure cooker. I love a good stew or casserole simmering away on the stove, filling the kitchen with delicious aromas. But let's face it, life is busy, and I don't always have the time to dedicate hours at a time in the kitchen preparing dinner. So, thank goodness for the Instant Pot, the electric pressure cooker that has saved me on many an occasion and enabled me to serve dishes that would normally require hours of cooking, in just a fraction of the time.
If time is your friend and you love delicious aromas filling your kitchen, then making Bolognese Sauce conventionally, on the stove top, is the way forwards. But if you're trying to squeeze in time to make dinner amongst your hectic day, then this Instant Pot Bolognese Sauce recipe is the one you want. And you'll be pleased to hear that none of the flavour is sacrificed.
Bolognese sauce is widely loved in our family for its ease and versatility. It's quickest to serve it over freshly cooked pasta, but I'll usually try to use the leftovers to make lasagne, which always pleases the children.
