This recipe is also Weight Watcher friendly for those who trying to watch their points. Trying to find something to make for that next picnic or graduation party well here you go. I promise you won’t regret making this. You can even substitute the veggies for onions and green peppers. Me and my family aren’t big on peppers and onions so I added in the carrots and celery.



Pre-Measure Ingredients: Pre-Measure out all ingredients in individual containers so will be easier later to just toss in the ingredients.

Cut and Chop Veggies: Take your 3 celery stalks and cut them in small pieces with a knife. Then put pieces in a food chopper or food processor so their mashed up real good. Do the same with the carrots.

Set Pot to Sauté: Wants you set your pot to sauté mode wait for it to heat up. Once it is hot, add Olive Oil, Ground Turkey, Celery, Carrots, & Garlic.

Sauté: Continue to sauté for 5 minutes until browned.

Add in other ingredients: Add Worcestershire Sauce, Red Wine Vinegar, Brown Sugar, Salt & Pepper, and Tomato Sauce.

Turn off Sauté Mode: Turn off sauté mode and place lid on instant pot. Make sure valve is set to seal.

Pressure Cook: Press the Pressure Cook Button & Set to high, then cook for 2 minutes. It will take 5 to 10 minutes to come to pressure.

Press Cancel: Once it is done cooking, press cancel and it will take up to 15 minutes for the pressure to slowly come back down.

Add to a bun an enjoy!


If you decide to substitute the carrots and celery for peppers and onions, you will still cook them for the same amount of time.
