  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 2 pounds boneless beef chuck roast, cut into cubes, or to taste

  • 5 large carrots, chopped

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • 2 stalks celery, chopped

  • 6 cups water

  • 3 large turnips, peeled and diced

  • 1 pound fresh green beans, trimmed and sliced

  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

  • 2 tablespoons salt, or more to taste

  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon onion powder, or more to taste

  • 1 tablespoon celery seed

  • 2 bay leaves

  • ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat olive oil in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Cook beef cubes until brown on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Cook carrots, onion, and celery until translucent, about 5 minutes. Return beef to the pot; add water, turnips, green beans, tomato paste, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, celery seed, and bay leaves.

  2. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  3. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Taste the soup; add more salt, garlic, onion, and pepper, if needed.

Cook's Note:

Sometimes we mix 1 tablespoon xanthan gum with some water to thicken it up.
