Instant Pot Beef & Vegetable Soup
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 small white onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 whole red bell pepper cubed
- 1 lb grass-fed beef
- 1 cup carrots, thick slices
- 2 cups butternut squash, cubed
- 28 oz can organic crushed tomatoes
- 25 oz can organic black beans, rinsed
- 8 oz lentil pasta, elbow
- 4 cups kale + spinach mixed
- 1 pinch salt + pepper, to taste
- ¼ tsp chili pepper flakes
- ½ tsp oregano
- 2 tablespoon scallion
- Turn the instant pot on sauté mode. When hot, add in oil
- Add the onion and garlic and sauté until onion is translucent and garlic is fragrant (about 3-4 mins). Add in the beef and cook for about 12-13 mins or until fully browned and cooked through. Be sure to stir often so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan and break into very small chunks.
- Add the bell pepper and all the spices, scallion and season with salt and pepper to taste. Sauté for another minute here then add the butternut squash and carrots and sauté for an additional 5 minutes or until veggies are starting to soften.
- Add the crushed tomatoes and about 6 cups of filtered water. Also add the beans and pasta and give it a good stir.
- Place the top on lock position and seal the valve. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. When time is up, release all the pressure immediately.
- Remove the top and fold in the kale and spinach.
- Serve as is or add fresh Pecorino Romano cheese!
I don't have an instant pot but a regular stove-top pressure cooker - do you think the cooking times are the same? Also, the beef is ground beef, right?
Love your recipes!!

Aw thanks so much! I also own a stove top pressure cooker but I confess that since I got the electric pressure cooker I haven’t used my old one. However, few things I noticed between he two. 1. the stove top pressure cooker reaches high pressure quicker then the electric one, and it also releases the pressure a bit quicker as well. 2. As for the actual cooking times, I def think that the electric pressure cooker is faster. I used to cook dried beans for 45 mins on the conventional one and the IP does the job in 25 mins! This said... I don’t have the perfect ratio between the two, but I do recommend that you follow the same time table as the IP and see if your recipes are needing more time after all. And yes, it’s ground beef completely browned and cooked through before going on high pressure, which is why this recipe is done in 3 minutes under high pressure.
