Instant Pot® Hamburger Soup

Rated as 4.54 out of 5 Stars

"Easy and delicious soup with a nice thickness. You can make it in the Instant Pot® or on the stovetop. When this cools, it will be very thick, but it thins out when reheated. Freezes very well."

This is a great soup, and it makes a lot. If you're someone that likes leftovers, this is for you. Make sure you use pearl barley because hulled barley will be chewy, and quick barley will be m...

This recipe calls for far too much liquid for the amount of other ingredients, in my opinion. Once it was done cooking, I added 2 cups of cooked pasta (Barilla Pasta Ready) and a can of red kid...

I have been making this for years. Make exactly as written, just adding some salt and pepper. I cook on stovetop for approx 4 hrs. Great recipe! (for those who are going to rewrite or make numer...

Amazing! Had to make it again because it was so delicious!

I added potatoes and used beef broth and no tomato soup

I used beef broth , added a couple pinches Montreal steak spice. Made a similar receipe for years , great on cold day.

At first I didn't think it would be enough for dinner. I used some biscuits to fix that. It has a real nice flavor just the way it is.

Good hardy soup in a short time

A bit bland, but if you add salt, pepper, and hot sauce it is great. Definitely will make again and possibly add a couple of things.

This turned out delicious. I will definitely make it again but will probably add a little garlic and white pepper.
