Instant Pot Chili

  1. Turn your Instant Pot into saute mode. Add in about one tablespoon of ghee.

  2. Once the Instant Pot is "hot" add in the finely diced onions and minced garlic. Saute with for about 1 minute or until fragrant.

  3. Next add in the chili powder, cumin, cayenne pepper, smoked paprika, kosher salt, and black pepper. Mix it with the onions and garlic and saute until fragrant.

  4. Once the spices become fragrant and have bloomed, add in your ground beef and breaking it into smaller pieces and coating it with onions, garlic and spices.

  5. When the meat is coated, turn the Instant Pot off, add in the beef bone broth and diced tomatoes. Stir until well combined.

  6. Put the lid onto the Instant Pot, seal it shut, and then press the "bean/chili" button. Let cook for 25 minutes.

  7. Let the Instant Pot naturally release pressure for about 10 minutes and then manually release it.

  8. Stir the chili and taste to see if you need more kosher salt and pepper.
