Servings 8 persons


  • Pressure Cooker


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 6 slices of bacon diced
  • 1 medium-sized onion diced
  • 1 large carrot diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 cups risotto rice I prefer Arborio
  • ½ cup marsala
  • 5 cups beef broth divided
  • 1 can 14.5 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/3 cup Parmesan freshly grated + extra to serve
  • Handful of fresh parsley chopped
  • A pinch of salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in your pressure cooker and brown the ground beef for about 4-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove to a plate.
  • Add bacon to the pressure cooking pot and cook until crisp. Then add onions, carrots, and garlic, sauté until tender, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add rice and cook, stirring frequently, until rice becomes opaque, about 3-4 minutes.
  • Add the marsala and cook 2 minutes. Pour in 4 cups beef broth, tomatoes, tomato paste, milk, bay leaves, and cooked ground beef. Cover and lock lid in place. Select High Pressure and set 6 minutes timer. After 6 minutes, turn off the pressure cooker and use a quick pressure release.
  • Select Simmer and stir in remaining 1 cup of beef broth. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes until most of the broth is absorbed and the rice is creamy.
  • Stir in grated Parmesan and chopped parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve hot with extra Parmesan on top.
