On sauté mode, add in your olive oil and onions. Give it a stir for a minute to soften the onions before adding in garlic and ground beef.
Brown the ground beef in the Instant Pot for 2-4 minutes, breaking up large pieces.

Place on your lid, seal, and select manual and set for 5 minutes.
Quick release when done and stir in basil and parmesan if desired.
