Season beef patties with salt and pepper on both sides.
Wrap each patty in a piece of aluminum foil.
Place beef patties on a trivet inside the Instant Pot. Add a cup of water to instant pot and close. Set the pressure valve to Close. Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes. (Don't forget to let your cooker come to pressure before beginning cook time.)
When finished, open the pressure valve to release, being careful not to burn your fingers.
Remove patties from aluminum.
Serve patties with a toasted bun and your favorite toppings.
