  8. When the pressure cooker indicates that the ground beef mixture and potatoes are done, allow the pressure cooker to stay on until it has released the steam on its own - or press the steam-release button until all the steam has been released and the red button on the pressure cooker drops.

  9. Serve this meal like Nachos Fixin's - without chips. 

  10. Instead of chips on the bottom, place a red potato on a plate, cut it in fourths, add the cooked beef mixture on top, and add all the toppings you want: sour cream, grated cheese, shredded cabbage, salsa, etc.
