  • I make this Instant Pot vegetable beef soup with fresh vegetables but frozen veggies would work. 😉 They will have a different texture though, a bit mushier.

I used what looked fresh and wasn’t expensive at the store. Literally the entire meal including the garlic rolls was about $20. It fed all 5 of us with lunch for 2 left over for the next day, I call that a major win!

I will say it took a while to get our kids to eat and really love vegetables but now they’d prefer them over a steak any day. This easy Instant Pot recipe is great for lunch, dinner, or even a potluck.

If you don’t have this amazing appliance yet you can find the Instant Pot I use here. You won’t regret buying it I promise!

  • Omit the ground beef

This Instant Pot vegetable ground beef soup is really delicious, and healthy too! Easily made vegetarian if you wish. We’ve added some shaved parmesan cheese to the top once served. This is a really a good addition to the meal.

Our pressure cooker barley soup is fantastic. Low in calories you don’t really need much seasonings as the ham does it for you.

Note: I used all fresh vegetables. For the best result I would use fresh vs. frozen vegetables. BUT if that is all you have by all means use those. The pressure cooking time will not change. 

15 minutes on high pressure will soften any and all vegetables. Do not add veggies that will become mush though, like broccoli. Potatoes, carrots, and fresh green beans are your best options as they are firmer. 

  • You could opt to add stew meat instead of ground beef but I would recommend dicing the pieces up rather small.

That way it will become tender when cooking at the bottom of the pot. Refer to our pressure cooker beef pot pie soup to make a stew meat version of this.

If you’d like softer vegetables allow pot to natural release for 3 minutes vs. a quick release noted.

Then remove the lid and serve immediately for best results. We have a crockpot vegetable beef soup version here too.

If you wanted to start with dry beans and add those. You don’t have to soak them first.

Just use our reference of Instant Pot bean cook times and make those first. Then add them in after you’ve drained them and they’re soft with everything else.

Can I use frozen green beans instead of fresh?


Saturday 27th of January 2018

My husband prefers beef stew meat to hambuger in his vegetable beef soup? Would I have to change the cooking time if I used stew meat? Also you used chicken broth instead of beef broth, is that correct?

You could use either type of broth. I am not sure of the cooking time for stew meat vs. hamburger but it would be a bit longer depending on how tender he likes it.
