So, let’s start at the beginning – with the all mighty Instant Pot!
When we saw the Instant Pot craze start to appear on the internet horizon – we knew we HAD to have one of these useful little gadgets. And once we got our hands on one, it quickly became a much used and well loved favorite!
Since we live in South Africa at the moment, we couldn’t get our hands on an official “Instant Pot” at the time, so we had to settle for an alternative – we ended up choosing the Russel Hobbs Electric Pressure Cooker and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. So, we definitely recommend that one as well as the original.
Now, let’s get into today’s main topic.
Instant Pot Ground Beef Hamburger Soup.
I always say it, but I always say it because it’s true! This recipe is ridiculously easy and perfect for a weeknight dinner. We create easy week night dinner recipes, because we like to COOK easy week night dinner recipes.
This one has been in the rotation for a while now, since we tried similar recipes from various different blogs and ended up putting our own spin on it!
What Ingredients Go Into A Hamburger Soup:
Making Hamburger Soup is easy! It needs 7 fresh ingredients and 7 pantry ingredients and spices. It looks like a long list – but it’s ridiculously simple and healthy! All you Paleo, Whole 30’ers and Gluten-Free peeps are good to dig in!
You can also make this soup Low-Carb and Keto by foregoing the potato and maybe adding some cauliflower!
So, for the fresh ingredients:
- Ground Beef
- Baby Potatoes or Sweet Potato
- Green Beans
- Minced Garlic
- Beef Stock
And, then the pantry items and spices:
- Canned Tomato
- Dried Oregano
- Dried Thyme
- Chili Powder
- Dijon Mustard
- Salt and Pepper
So, how do you make Instant Pot Ground Beef Burger Soup?
Turn on your instant pot. Choose the sauté setting. Add the ground beef to the pot and sauté until the mince is browned.
Toss everything else into the pot:
Add the beef stock. It looks great even before it’s cooked! Mmmm!
Now, seal the lid. Choose the manual setting (High Pressure for 12 Minutes). Then use quick or natural release. Open the pot and voilà! A colorful and delicious dinner is ready for eating!
I prefer to use the manual setting when making soup in the instant pot, because it is much quicker than the instant pot “soup setting” and I’ve yet to notice a difference in flavor.
Quicker weeknight dinners are more important than using the actual “soup setting” – no doubt about it.
The best part about this recipe is the fact that it does taste like a hamburger. But in reality it’s actually pretty much a ground beef and vegetable soup – which is fantastic. I absolutely love when healthy food is super delicious, but it doesn’t surprise me that much anymore. Healthy IS delicious!
