Using your instant Pot Saute mode. Brown your 2lbs of Ground Chuck. (Do not drain any grease.)
Add Tomato Sauce, Soy Sauce and diced tomatoes to the Instant Pot on top of your now cooked Ground Chuck.
Add 1 tablespoon of Minced Garlic.
Add chopped Onion.
Add 16 oz of Elbow Macaroni Pasta.
Add 4 cups of Water.
Grind your dried spices ( Oregano and basil) and then add them.
Add 2 Bay Leaves.
Add 1 Tsp of Seasoned Salt ( I prefer Landry's).
Stir all the ingredients.
Turn on your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker to soup mode. Set the under pressure cooking time to 6 minutes.
Add your lid to your Instant Pot and set vent to airtight or seal.
Once the pressure cook time has lapsed. You will quick release the pressure from your Instant Pot. I like to cover my pot with a dish towel to protect my cabinets from the steam.
Serve your Goulash with a sprinkle of your preferred cheese mix in and a side of your favorite crackers. Now Enjoy your dinner.
