Instant Pot Hamburger Soup


  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 sticks celery chopped
  • 1 pound extra lean (95% lean) ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 heaping tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 (28 fluid ounce) can diced tomatoes with juices
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 large Russet potatoes diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning or to taste
  • Salt & pepper to taste


1Add the olive oil, onion, and celery to your Instant Pot. Press the sauté button and cook for 4 minutes.


2Stir in the beef and garlic. Cook until the beef has browned, stirring occasionally (about 5 minutes). You shouldn’t need to drain much fat if you’re using extra lean ground beef, but feel free to drain some/most of it if desired (I didn’t drain any).

3Stir in the tomato paste, then add in the diced tomatoes, beef broth, potatoes, and Italian seasoning.

4Close the lid, make sure the valve is on “sealing”, and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.

5Once the countdown has finished, do a quick pressure release.


6Season with salt & pepper as needed and serve immediately.



Serves 4-6.
Anything from about 1 to 1.5 pounds ground beef will work.
Use low-sodium beef broth if you’re sensitive to salt.
Inactive time indicates the time it takes the Instant Pot to get up to pressure.
