This recipe was adapted slightly from a Slow Cooker Beef and Pepper Soup recipe on Paleo Leap recipe that caught my eye.  We made a few changes and it came out awesome in the Instant Pot.  We served this with Gluten Free Cheddar Biscuits and it was one heck of a meal!

Slow Cooker Beef and Pepper Soup

Author: Ryan Chapman
Servings : 4

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef 90% lean or leaner
  • 1 cup frozen diced onions or fresh, see notes
  • 1 cup frozen diced carrots or fresh, see notes
  • 1 package frozen bell pepper mix or 2 bell peppers, diced or in strips
  • 2 cups cauliflower riced/minced
  • 1 can Diced Tomatoes 15 oz
  • 1 can tomato sauce 15 oz
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 2 Tbsp bottled minced garlic
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste

Instructions

Slow Cooker Directions

  • Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Freezer Meal Directions

  • To use as a freezer meal, place all ingredients into a large resealable freezer bag. Mix ingredients and break up the meat through the bag by hand. Label and Freeze.
  • When ready to use, remove the frozen block from the bag and place in the slow cooker. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours. Top with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Instant Pot® Directions

  • Place all ingredients in the Instant Pot and close the lid.
  • Press the "soup" button. If you want the IP to delay starting to cook until later, press the timer button right after pressing the soup button and select the amount of time you want it to delay. If you are cooking it right now, you don't need to use the timer as it is a delay timer and not a cooking time setting.
  • Once the soup is done, the IP will go into keep warm mode until you are ready to eat. The pressure will release naturally or you can use quick release if you are ready to eat before it releases naturally.

Notes

When testing this recipe, we used Trader Joe's Mirepoix mix instead of frozen onions and carrots.  Mirpoix is just diced onions, carrots, and celery and is usually found in the ready vegetables section in the produce department.  It's just as convenient as frozen veggies and the celery is a fine addition to this recipe.
