Thick, delicious and absolutely comforting old fashioned beef and vegetable soup in Instant pot will comfort you on a cold day!
For this delicious soup i want to thank a pressure cooker i have- an Instant Pot! So quick, and the meat is so tender, like it was cooked for hours, but in fact it was just 20 minutes!
Cooked to perfection- a comforting treat for you and your family on a cold day. I wish it was snowy here, in North California! The closest snow destination for us is Lake Tahoe, about 3-4 hours away. I love that place!
The flavors of this beef and vegetable soup are so comforting. Tender juicy meat bites, delicious veggies and the main part is the broth! Rich, flavorful, amazing!
Where do we buy beef
There are a lot of places to buy meat around us. A lot of farms, where the owners offers you a large variety of fresh beef.
You can even buy a half of a cow and share it between friends. So much cheaper!
Sometimes we buy meat at Costco. Not same quality as fresh farmed, but hey, so much more affordable! I like to buy in bulk, and then freeze everything in small batches- very handy.
When its a cook day, just get the batch out and defrost it at once. No extra work required!
Instant Pot is an amazing tool for any soup lover. Really! The possibilities are endless.
I have a few soup recipes on my blog:
- Caldo de Res in Instant Pot(Mexican beef soup),
- Instant Pot 15 bean and Sausage soup(affordable and easy) or
- Instant pot chicken noodle soup(classic and kid friendly!).
