Pressure Cooker Bolognese Sauce

25 MIN
40 MIN
4 cups (1 litre)



  1. In a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, brown the pancetta and ground meat in half of the butter, breaking the meat up with a wooden spoon. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, preheat the pressure cooker on the Sauté function. Brown the onion, carrots, celery and garlic in the remaining butter. Season with salt and pepper. Add the meat mixture. Deglaze with the wine and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the broth and cream. Mix well. Add the tomato paste without stirring.
  3. Cover and select the Meat function. Set the machine to cook for 20 minutes.
  4. Let the pressure release and remove the lid. Mix well and adjust the seasoning.


  1. Used my own pressure cooker for also 20 min. Grilled my meat and veggies really well as directed and deglased with red wine. When I opened my pressure cooker, the bottom was really dark as most of the juices were gone and it gave a wonderful flavor, redoing It tomorrow and I will be looking for that same nearly burnt flavor. 10/10!
