Old fashioned beef and vegetable soup in Instant Pot

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!
