I love putting a twist on classic dishes like this one!

Instant Pot Pot Pie Soup

  • When you start with such a delicious high-quality protein, the pressure cooking possibilities are endless right??!! You can sear beef, grill it, roast it, use it as an ingredient or make it an entrée or.
  • This time we’re using our pressure cooker to do all the cookin’. 😉

Especially after the holidays when you’re tired of spending all day in the kitchen this dish is going to not only become your family’s favorite dish but give you a break as well!

You can see basically what you’ll need here……simple right??!!

Yes I use frozen mixed vegetables to make this pot pie. Why?? Well especially during the winter time I may not have fresh corn or green beans available.

AND it enables me to throw this pressure cooker dinner together in no time at all since I can eliminate chopping each one into bite size pieces.

I’m a busy mom y’all. That means any and all short cuts are welcome. Yes slow cooking is great, but if you forget to prep a meal in the morning you need something fast come dinnertime.

Pot pie soup in a pressure cooker?

  • This method cuts cooking time in half
    • Beef pot pie or soup in the oven / stovetop would take around 60 minutes vs. 35 minutes in my pressure cooker

The beef stew meat cooked in this pressure cooker pot pie soup comes out incredibly tender

  • Beef’s tender, juicy texture is optimum when cooked to medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness
      • You can ensure it will be cooked through using this method which gives it a tender texture as though it were cooked all day in a slow cooker but in a fraction of the time
  • Using an Instant Pot vs. cooking it on the stovetop allows you to add all your ingredients and walk away

No more standing at the stove to make sure it doesn’t burn or stirring, just release steam when it beeps and you know it’ll be done to perfection

Pot pie isn’t just about the tender beef and vegetables though right?? You need some flaky goodness with it….that part is totally up to you.

Since I am aiming for a quick dinner I just throw in some refrigerated biscuits and they’re done at the same time our beef pot pie soup is ready.

Some of us like them on the side, where others (me) like them cut up into bite size pieces and served on the top like you see here.

  • Scoop up a spoonful with a variety of vegetables, a piece of tender beef, thick broth and a piece of biscuit for the best bite ever!!

I know….you’re thinking of what you need to grab at the store right now aren’t you??!!
