Thick, delicious and absolutely comforting old fashioned beef and vegetable soup in Instant pot will comfort you on a cold day! Almost as thick as a stew! Weight watchers 6 smart points per serving.
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 cooking 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.
Freezer meal option
This beef and vegetable stew is easy to make your go to dump freezer meal. Just cut all the ingredients, cube meat (leave aside water, broth and tomato paste, you will add it later).
Add them to a gallon size zip lock bag and freeze trying to leave it standing in the freezer. If you will lay the bag flat, it will be a bit complicated to dump it into your Instant Pot because it simply will not it.
Once all the ingredients are in the pot, add liquid and cook on SOUP setting for 23 minutes (6 minutes longer then if not from frozen).
My kids love all kinds of dishes that i cook in my Pressure cooker. But they have their favorite- Instant Pot recipes for kids.

I like my soup with more flavor so I added salt,pepper, and more of the vegetables plus six tomatoes I blended up.Turned out good.

I added a 1/2 cup frozen corn, 1/2 cup frozen green beans and 1/2 cups frozen peas because I like as many veggies as I can get in my soup. I’m waiting to see how this turns out!

Want to try this recipe but since I am widowed and kids all on their own, want to freeze soup after making it. Do not like consistency of potatoes after being frozen - do you have any suggestion of other veggies to add? By the way, so glad I got my 6 qt Instant Pot even though I am only one. Have made many soups and chili to freeze in individual servings and even chicken breasts with my Foodsaver.
