Pressure Cooker Meatloaf

I’ll be honest… I’ve seen a lot of pressure cooker meatloaf recipes online that just didn’t seem appetizing at all. It seems as though most methods prefer to glaze the meatloaf before you cook it, like you would in a traditional meatloaf recipe. But that just doesn’t work for pressure cooking. IMHO. What you usually end up with is a slimy, almost orange sauce that kinda ruins it for me. Even when you put it under a broiler, there’s really no coming back from it.

So I decided to switch things up for this one. It took a few tries to get it right, but I think you’ll be very happy with this method! I know my family was.
