When I started Instant Pot pressure cooking, I knew this was a recipe to modify and create an Instant Pot version. I’ve included the stove-top directions for those who don’t have a pressure cooker.

This soup is just MyWW Purple 4 points, MyWW Blue 8 points, MyWW Green 8 points per serving. It’s full of protein and healthy vegetables to keep you satisfied and is a perfect dinner for a fall or winter night. The left-overs are even better for lunch the next day. (Points updated October, 2020.)

Instant Pot Hamburger Soup

My family loves this soup for the rich, bold flavor. As someone who has lost 100 pounds and been maintaining for the last 10 years, I love that this soup is packed full of healthy vegetables. When you use lean ground beef (or even leaner, ground turkey breast, especially for the Weight Watchers among us), this soup is incredibly healthy and low in calories/points.

I also love that this Instant Pot Hamburger soup recipe is inexpensive to create but has a rich, meaty flavor. This recipe is sure to become one of your Instant Pot recipes favorites.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 quarts of water
  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 3 medium carrots cut into thirds
  • 1 cup of celery cut into small pieces
  • 1 cup of onion finely chopped
  • a few small potatoes I used 6 that were about 1.5 inches in this exact dish
  • 1 cup of brown rice
  • 3.5 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1 bay leaf
  • a few fresh basil leaves
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 5 teaspoons of salt
  • 1 cup of thinly sliced cabbage – we used purple but green works too
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • Optional: a little bit of cheese to top it with

Instructions

  • Select the sauté setting on your Instant Pot and heat the oil. Add the cut celery and onions and brown just a bit.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and the ground beef, taking a minute to make sure the meat is broken down into small bits and pieces.
  • Set the cabbage aside until the end of the cooking phase. Then mix in everything else aside from the bay and basil leaves, place those on top.
  • Cancel the sauté mode and select manual on high pressure for 9 minutes.
  • When the Instant Pot finishes the pressurized cooking and beeps, allow it to rest and natural pressure release for just 2-3 minutes before carefully releasing the rest of the pressure.
  • When you remove the lid everything should be perfectly soft, give the soup a good stir, this will help break down the carrots and potatoes, then mix in the cabbage and let it rest for a few minutes.
  • Spoon into your favorite bowls and top with a little cheese.
