  1. This recipe was soooo delicious! This will definitely become one of my regularly used soups. I added 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and crushed red pepper. I garnished with freshly chopped parsley.

  2. 5 stars
    My husband and I really like this soup. He is on a low salt diet and I found that by using no salt added broth and no salt added diced tomatoes he is able to have this and it is really good.

  3. Will this freeze well? I looove soup especially veggie soup but I’m the only one in the house!!

  4. I made this but I added some potatoes. Also, basil, oregano, garlic. I used better than bullion and beef broth. Turned out great.

  5. 5 stars
    HI , I have made this soup once exactly by the recipe and it was great. Now I want to add some different veggies, broccoli, carrots, and cabbage as well as some mixed veggies. Would this work? I just don’t want to ruin a good thing.

  6. I have a 6 qt instant pot, would I need to change the amount of liquid that I need to use? I believe this recipe is for a 8qt instant pot. Would really love to try this. Thanks.

  7. I’m about to try this recipe. At what point would you add minced garlic? I don’t know much about cooking, but I love garlic.

  8. Can I use canned veggies? I’m trying to not have to run to the grocery store but all I have are canned…

  9. I am new to Instant Pot and a little intimidated. Is this recipe for a 6 qt? To me, seems like a lot of ingredient quantity for a 6 qt. Thanks 🙂

  10. Daisy, yes, this recipe can be made in the crock pot. I would brown the beef or turkey. Put the browned meat and all other ingredients in the crock pot and cook on low for 6-7 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Thank you!

  11. Betsy – I think that the tomato sauce and paste would change the taste a bit on this one. I usually use some sort of canned tomatoes but I haven’t tried the sauce. Let me know how it turns out if you decide to try it! Thanks.

    I LOVE a good vegetable beef soup, and am so delighted to have come across your recipe on Pinterest. Being a single older woman who lives alone, cooking something like this in larger batches and then freezing some of it is a real boon–like many people who no longer cook for multiple people, I sometimes just don’t have the interest in making individual meals on a daily basis, though prefer home cooking to eating out. This will provide several meals I can just reheat in my IP (my brand is Yedi, though same appliance), and have deliciousness again and again.

  13. Hi, I am loving my instant pot and today is certainly a “soup Sunday!”. I have just about all the ingredients necessary, (trying to get out of running to the store;). Is it possible to use tomato sauce and or tomato paste, instead of the stewed or canned tomatoes? Any suggestions?
    Thank you so much.

  14. 5 stars
    I use fire roasted diced tomatoes and following spices: 1/4 t. basil, 1/4 t. oregano, 1/2 t. garlic powder, and 1/2 t. pepper. I also throw in a can of dark red kidney beans when soup is done. Last night my husband accidentally brought home diced tomatoes fire roasted salsa style with peppers, onions and garlic. I made the soup without realizing it. My husband said it’s better than the tortilla soup I make. Holy smokes it’s spicy, but sooo good!

  15. Sonia – Great idea! I would not change the cooking time with this addition! Let me know how it tastes with the potatoes!

  16. 5 stars
    You don’t know how long I have searched for a way to make “my vegatable soup” in the instant pot!!
    I used my recipe which is almost exactly like yours. I add ketchup instead of tomatoes bc my fam isn’t big on chunks of tomatoes, but that’s it! Bam! No more boiling on the stove for an hour. I can walk away. Make corn bread and dinner for 2 nights. Thank you so much?

  17. 5 stars
    Just a follow-up to previous comment. I drained all the liquid, added the tomato paste and water. Re did it for 4 minutes, and it is awesome! I will make sure to drain any grease next time before adding my ingredients plus I want to add the potatoes other posts suggested.

    I can already tell, I’m gonna love my Instant Pot!

  18. 4 stars
    I would suggest that you add to drain the grease from the ground beef if not using lean. Being new to the Instant Pot, I wondered if I should drain the grease, but didn’t because the recipe said nothing about it. Needless to say, I wasted a whole pot of soup. I did drain it afterwards and added tomato paste and water but have not tried it yet. Stomach still a little queasy from the greasy liquid. My bad, should have went with my instinct on this. I too wondered about the corn, but you answered that one. Will try again. Trial and error with the new Instant Pot.

    This was the first soup I made in my Instant Pot. I used a Boston mix of pork and beef and my husband didn’t think it smelled too good while cooking. I was worried I’d wasted the food and effort. Then we tasted it. Wow, this is good! He’s asked me to make it a regular part of our menu, and I keep extra bowls in the freezer for those days we need to take a quick lunch to the office or when we’re too tired to cook. Really appreciate the recipe. Thank you for sharing!

  20. 5 stars
    For my first time using the Instant Pot this turned out really good. I’m a retired single man. This batch will feed me for several days. I only used two cans of dice tomatoes, one regular and the other with rosemary and oregano. I also used frozen chopped onions instead, about a cup. As I said it turned out great. Thank you for the recipe!

  21. 5 stars
    Made this for our lunch today and everyone thought it was delicious. I did not add extra corn. I did add stew beef instead of ground beef, 4 small white potatoes diced, garlic powder and 1/2 package of mild taco seasoning for flavor. Served it with 5 cheese garlic toast. Yummy!

  22. 5 stars
    Used a small piece of bone in beef cut and 1/2 lb ground round. The onion, 2 cans diced and 1 can stewed tomatoes. 1 bag mixed vegetables with corn. The water and low sodium beef base to match the amount of water used. Salt & pepper while sauteeing meet. Cooked on high pressure for 40 minutes. This soup was fast to put together and cook but tasted like it had cooked all day.

    Hello. Can’t wait.but my instantpot does not have a manual setting. I just figured its other the meat/stew or preasure cook. I went with preasure cook. I wonder if I’m right?

  24. Carrie, thank you so much for your recipe. I made the soup last night with my Father’s Day gift (Insta-Pot)
    Wow my wife and I loved it. We are not too fond about Lima beans as well so I substituted diced potatoes. I also added 1/2 cup of green onions. I’m saving this one!!

  25. 5 stars
    One thing I’ve often wondered about as a novice cook is whether or not the called for frozen veggies are thawed first before adding, or do you add them still frozen?

  26. My mixed bag for the video had corn, so I didn’t add it. Originally when I made it my mixed veggies didn’t have corn so I added it. If yours does then omit the corn. I normally do 3 cans of tomatoes. In the video, I made a smaller batch so only used 2. Thanks so much!

  27. Hello I have a couple questions. Video shows you just putting in two cans of tomatoes not 3. Can you confirm if you use 2 or 3? Also, most bags of mixed veggies contain corn. It seems like it would be an awful lot of corn to do 2 cups of corn in addition to 2 cups mixed veggies. In the video it appears you simply used mixed veggies. Can you confirm if you really use 2 cups of corn in addition to 2 cups of veggies? Otherwise looks good and super simple, thanks!

  28. Your instant pot beef vegetable soup recipe calls for 3 cans of diced tomatoes. What size cans? That would be helpful in the recipe. Otherwise it sounds delicious.

    I’ve made almost every week for the past two months. I sent the recipe to my Mother and she makes it frequently as well. It really couldn’t be easier and it’s delicious. I add parmesan cheese to the leftovers sometimes or turn it into a sort of Shepherd’s Pie. I admit I do only use 2 cans of crushed tomatoes and I add and extra cup of water along with a packet of Lipton Beefy Onion Soup.
