I totally have to give props to my sister for this Instant Pot Hamburger Soup Recipe idea. She sent me a meat & potatoes version of a Hamburger Soup recipe that I knew I had to put my healthy spin on it. I actually ended up not really following the recipe but I braved experimenting making this on my own in my Instant Pot using tons of fresh veggies, herbs, lean meat and it turned out amazing.
This soup is so good – it’s thick, hearty, chunky and packed with this rich, herby tomato flavor like a much richer minestrone.
I love that you put everything in the pot, set it and wait 25 minutes.
Now if only it had a better name – Enjoy!
