Instant Pot® Cabbage and Beef Soup

Rated as 4.88 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great Instant Pot® recipe for cleaning out veggies from your fridge. I put in my recipe things that are always in my fridge but you can easily substitute the veggies and add cauliflower, celery, or zucchini, etc. Make sure you have at least a 6-quart pressure cooker."
