Instant Pot Beef and Vegetable Soup

Set it and forget it.

It’s November, and we’ve already had our first snow. That might not seem crazy to some, but here in Oklahoma it was a bit early. So of course we have started to fill our pots with chili, stews, and soups.

This beef and vegetable soup has been a perfect quick dump dish for our cold weather days. It’s coziness in a bowl really. The meat and veggies create a nice broth on their own. Adding a little garlic, tomato sauce, and seasoning easily elevates it.

I used fresh vegetables. If you use canned instead wait until the meat is finished cooking and add those at the end. Also, if you aren’t sold on an Instant Pot yet this would work in the crock pot on high for about 4 hours.

  1. This looks healthy and hearty Lacey– no snow here, but at least we wear jackets out in the evening! And I’m ready for soups and chili too. Don’t have an Instant Pot– but I think it would work on the stove top with a little more time… And– how is your routine settling in having been back to work for a while?? Stay snug and warm back there!! xox

    1. We had soup again today lol!
      I think we are hitting our stride now, but I’m worried the holidays will make us have to start back over. That’s okay though!

      2. About the same. Crazy busy and then home trying to rest and get caught up.
        Wow, the first time in 5 years! I have loads of siblings so it’s always a big deal if we are all together on any holiday. I know it was awesome for everyone then!
