Easy Instant Pot (or Crockpot) Ground Pork Casserole

In our search for the best weekday meals, my husband and I find ourselves craving new and different dishes that break us out of the routine of chicken, fish and beef. That’s why we’ve recently become big fans of an unsung hero of weekday dinners…ground pork!

Affordable, versatile and delicious, there are so many ways of using ground pork for dinner. And right now, this easy Instant Pot Ground Pork Casserole is a favourite.

My favourite thing about the casserole is how easy it is to throw together. Pork, onion, some frozen vegetables and a can of soup are combined to make a rich and flavourful casserole that’s perfect for a busy weekday. And it’s easy to tailor the ingredients to what we have in the fridge too!

The first time that we made this recipe, we didn’t add the potatoes, but put in extra vegetables instead. It was still fantastic, and the whole family loved it.

The second time, we eliminated the celery and exchanged the carrots, frozen peas and frozen corn for a few cups of frozen mixed vegetables. It made an easy dish even easier and tasted great.

The other great thing about this ground pork casserole is its versatility goes beyond just using different vegetables. Using a different soup gives it a completely new flavour. My husband and I love using mushroom soup instead of tomato!

To top it all off, all the ingredients are inexpensive pantry and freezer staples, making this the perfect choice when we don’t know what to have for supper. Filling, delicious and cheap…no wonder ground pork casserole is a favourite in our family!

  1. I’ve been looking for some different instant pot recipes . This one looks really good and pretty easy to make . I think I already have all the ingredients too .

    1. I like plain food, no spice. This was certainly it, too plain, even for bland me. Missing a flavour note. Needs something, turmeric? Smoked paprika? Curry? Something.

      1. I have actually added smoked paprika before; definitely a great way to punch up the flavour a bit! My family also really prefers it with Cream of Bacon soup instead of Tomato these days, so that’s how we usually make it now. Gives it some extra flavour as well. :) What I like about it is that it is so versatile; toss everything together and then spice it up when it’s done as you like!
