Instant Pot Hamburger Soup
This recipe comes from one that my mother-in-law has been making for over 30 years. It leaves you with a warm and full belly because it is incredibly hearty.

Can you make this soup with leftovers ground beef?
Yes! I especially love making this instant pot hamburger soup because you can use leftover hamburger from taco night. Just skip the step of browning the meat on the sauté setting in the pot.
Our family loves recipes that can use leftovers. Simmering all the ingredients together bring each one to life again.
Can this Instant Pot hamburger soup also be made on the stovetop?
This soup is traditionally made on a stove in a pot and simmered for hours. I feel that the instant pot gives the same delicious taste without making you wait all day while it cooks on the stove top.
However, if you do want to go the traditional route of stovetop, simply follow the same steps then let it simmer on low for 6-8 hours. Another great stovetop soup is minestrone soup from Healthy Seasonal.
It’s just one more of those great recipes that can be made even quicker in the instant pot. We also took another one of my mother-in-laws recipes to make easier, you will love our gluten-free instant pot spaghetti too.
Be sure to make up some delicious gluten-free crescent rolls or our fluffy gluten-free buttermilk biscuits. They are perfect for sopping up the tasty juice from this soup or this yummy Instant Pot potato soup. And I love serving it with this asparagus salad!
