Instant Pot Vegetable Beef Soup
Growing up we regularly had vegetable beef soup for dinner. My Mom’s freezer was stocked full of all sorts of beef cuts from the cattle we raised and she was always finding ways to use it up.
She usually opted for more of a beef and vegetable stew that had potatoes in it. Because naturally she had to use up the bountiful harvest of potatoes from the garden as well! Unfortunately for her though, she did’t have the convenience of an electric pressure cooker.
Low Carb Beef Soup
Beef stew was never really my jam as a child, but I have come to appreciate a good beef soup as I have grown up.
For this particular Pressure Cooker Creamy Mushroom Beef Soup, I highlighted mushroom and eliminated the potatoes. For some added richness, we thicken the broth a bit and add cream. Who doesn’t love creamy mushrooms!?
Not only do I enjoy the flavor and texture more, it is a great low-carb dinner recipe that is perfect for those following a Keto diet. While it might not be full of carbs, it still is wonderfully hearty with the rich meat, loads of mushrooms and sweet carrots.
What Kind of Mushrooms should I use in beef soup?
The beauty of beef soup is that it works well with just about any mushrooms. I really like using a variety of mushrooms to add more depth to the recipe.
I had a small package of Baby Bella mushrooms in my refrigerator, so I added another small pack of simple white mushrooms to get my full pound of the produce.
Whether you have beautiful Portobellos you need to use up or the cheapest mushroom from the market, they will all work great!
Can I use chicken or vegetable stock?
If you don’t have beef broth on hand and want to through this Creamy Mushroom Beef soup in your pressure cook, you can certainly substitute any broth.
Vegetable and chicken broth are both good substitutes. If you don’t have those, you can always use bouillon and water in a pinch. More ideally than bouillon is Better than Bouillon. It is more flavorful than the traditional dried cubes.
