How To Make Instant Pot Ground Turkey Teriyaki Rice Bowls Recipe:

Teriyaki Sauce Mixture in Instant Pot

Get out your Instant Pot and add in the soy sauce, water, rice vinegar, brown sugar, sugar, garlic, and ground ginger to the inner pot. 

Press the SAUTE button on the Instant Pot and mix everything together with a whisk as the sauce heats up. 

While that is heating up, mix together the cornstarch and water in a small mixing bowl. 

When the sauce begins to bubble add in the cornstarch and water mixture and whisk it together until the sauce begins to thicken.

Once the sauce is thickened, pour it in a small bowl and set it aside. 

Be sure to use an oven mitt as the inner pot will be HOT!

Then carefully rinse out the metal bowl (or use another one if you have an extra one to use) and put it back inside the Instant Pot and let the pot warm back up. (The SAUTE function should still be on at this point.)

Ground Turkey with onions in Instant Pot

Now add in some olive oil and the diced onion, minced garlic, and ground turkey and cook it all together until the ground turkey is no longer pink. 

This should take about 5-6 minutes, also make sure to break up the turkey as it cooks. 

Shredded and Cut Vegetables in the Instant Pot

Next you will need to add in the broccoli, shredded carrots, and red bell pepper and mix it in with the ground turkey mixture. 

Pouring Teriyaki Sauce onto veggies in Instant Pot

Then pour in the teriyaki sauce on top and mix it into the ground turkey and vegetable so that everything is coated in sauce. 

Now pour in ½ cup of water on top but do NOT mix it in

Next place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and turn the valve to the SEALING position . 

Then press the CANCEL button to turn off the saute function and then press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 2 minutes. 

When the timer is finished move the valve to the VENTING position to do a quick release of the pressure.
