You can freeze each freezer meal flat or on the side in the freezer bags. If the contents won’t fit in frozen, toss in microwave for 2-3 minutes to thaw it slightly then pour into Instant Pot.

It will thaw it just enough you can toss right in the pressure cooker and seal with no problem.

Do I precook all of the meat before putting them in the freezer bags?

Depending on the recipe yes you will work on precooking meat. I find pre-cooked meat works best when you freeze and reheat in IP. It offers the best flavor.
