I hope you are surviving the snow and freezing temperatures, my friends. Here in the Pacific Northwest it is the rainy season. Haha, isn’t it always?
Today’s recipe for a classic hamburger soup made in the Instant Pot uses basic, tasty, ingredients.
This pressure cooker Hamburger Soup is similar to a Vegetable Beef Soup, only it calls for hamburger instead of stew meat. It cooks faster because the ground beef takes less time.
Instant Pot Hamburger Soup is pretty easy to throw together, and here I’ve shown you the steps (for all you visual learners, like me) to make it:
I love all of those hearty vegetables with the chunks of hamburger! The tasty broth is rich and comforting. Mmmmmmmm.
No wonder this is a classic recipe that families love! My kids have always liked this hamburger soup recipe.
And here you have it! This pressure cooker hamburger soup is the perfect thickness, from the tomato paste, and the potatoes.
The flavors are classic and simple, and so delicious! I hope you are staying warm, and whipping up a batch of Instant Pot Hamburger Soup!

Instant Pot Hamburger Soup is a comforting classic ground beef stew made with simple, tasty ingredients. This pressure cooker hamburger soup is a family favorite!
- 1 lb Lean Ground Beef (I like using 90% lean)
- 1 Onion, diced
- 3 lrg Carrots, chopped in large pieces
- 4 med Potatoes, cut large
- 3 cups Beef Broth
- 1 packet Onion Soup Mix
- 1 Bay Leaf
- 1 ½ teaspoons Italian Seasoning
- 2 teaspoons Garlic Powder (or 3 cloves garlic, minced)
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- ½ teaspoon Pepper
- 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
- 1 14-ounce can Diced Tomatoes (with juice)
- 1 6-ounce can Tomato Paste
- 3 cups Frozen Mixed Vegetables (with corn, green beans, etc.)
Turn the pot on to the Sauté setting. Add the ground beef and the onions. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is cooked. Don't break up the meat completely, as some bigger chunks are nice in the soup.
Add the chopped carrots and potatoes, beef broth, onion soup mix, bay leaf, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Stir.
Dump the can of diced tomatoes and tomato paste on top but do not stir.
Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
Cancel the Sauté setting. Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial and then the +/- button or dial to select 7 minutes. High pressure. It will take several minutes to come to pressure.
When the cooking cycle is finished, let the pot sit undisturbed for 15 minutes (15 minute natural release). Then carefully, in short bursts at first, release the remaining steam manually, by turning the steam release knob to the Venting position.
Stir the soup well to incorporate the tomato paste.
Then stir in the frozen vegetables and let sit for a few minutes before serving. The veggies will cook in the heat of the hot soup.
Serve hot with some nice crusty bread!
Ground turkey can be used. Switch to chicken broth.

Delicious! Thank you for such a great recipe. This is one I will be making regularly.
I just put mine in the pot to pressurize, but it didn’t look like there was enough liquid for everything. I’m curious to know, will it make more juice? I just want to make sure it’ll be a little soupy and not like goulash, lol. Also, I added the veggies in with everything to pressurize/cook at the same time.
You can always add a little more broth, cook it, and add a bit more at the end if you like.
Can you add the frozen veggies from the start instead of adding them after cooking is complete?
Yes, they will just be softer.
I stumbled upon Sandy and her blog searching instant pot meals, and she is my go to. I live in South Alabama where flavor is a must, and everything I have cooked from Sandy is just right. Jack Frost visited us down south the last couple nights hitting the 30s, so we made this veggie soup tonight and it was wonderful! Southern approved and will be back for more recipes from you.
I Made this tonight and it was amazing! I did however substitute the frozen veggies for canned vegetables! My kids aren’t keen on the frozen peas. It was so good with cornbread! Definitely making this again soon!
May I use canned crushed tomatoes in place of the diced?
The frozen veggies didn’t seem to soften as much as I wanted them to so I had to pressure cook for another two minutes after I added them and let it natural release. Otherwise the recipe is spot on. Delicious!
Sandy, This soup is just what I wanted! Even my kids loved it.
