Why Pressure Cookers are Great for Making Soups

8 Ways to Make the Perfect Beef-onion Soup in the Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker for Busy People on the Run or Those Who Need Dinner Fast

Beef-onion soup is a traditional and hearty dish made with beef, onions, and broth. This easy recipe is perfect for busy people on the run or those who need it.

1. Brown the beef in batches: browning the beef in batches is a great way to ensure even cooking.

2. Season generously: adding salt and pepper to the pot will add flavor without any extra ingredients or effort.

3. Add liquid: adding liquid to the pot will help cook off some of the fat from the meat and keep your soup from being too thick later on.

4. Add aromatics: adding celery, carrots, minced garlic, thyme, bay leaves, and parsley will add flavor to your soup without any extra ingredients or effort

5. Cook slowly: cooking the soup at low to medium heat will help the ingredients to release their flavor.

6. Add vegetables: adding vegetables such as potatoes, parsnips, and sweet potatoes will make your soup more hearty.

7. Add liquids: adding extra liquid may be needed depending on the number of vegetables you add.

8. Cook with a lid as much as possible: leaving the lid on during cooking will retain the heat and help the flavors release.
