Instant Pot Sausage and Peppers

Prep Time 5 mins Cook Time 32 mins Total Time 0:37
Yields 6


  • 1 package of Sweet Italian Sausage Links (Approximately 2 pounds or 14 links)
  • 1 28 oz can of Crushed Italian Tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can of Tomato Sauce
  • 1 Teaspoon Basil
  • 1 Teaspoon Thyme
  • 1 Teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Fresh Cracked Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic
  • 2 Tablespoons EVOO
  • 1 Large Sweet onion (or 2 medium onions) sliced
  • 3 Large Red Bells Peppers (cored and sliced)


  1. With your IP on Sauté, heat olive oil and add minced garlic. When the garlic becomes just a little golden in color, add your sausage links. Brown the sausage links on different sides to add color and release flavors. This should take about 5-7 minutes in total.
  2. When your sausage is done, add in the onions, peppers, crushed tomatoes, tomato sauce, and all other ingredients on top. You do NOT need to stir. The IP is going to do it's job!
  3. Put your IP on Manual Mode for 26 minutes. It could probably use a little less time, but I'm a little on the crazy side of life when it comes to cooking pork based products.
  4. When the time is up, do a QR.
  5. Release the lid and give it a nice stir to finish melding the flavors together. Smells and looks amazing!
