Instant Pot Steak and Potato Soup

Instant Pot Steak and Potato Soup is a belly-warming filling meal that only requires a handful of basic ingredients! Plus it takes very little effort to make in the pressure cooker. Whip up a batch and enjoy with the whole family.

True confession: Campbell’s Chunky Steak and Potato Soup was my absolute favorite when I was growing up. Truth bomb #2: if I didn’t have an issue digesting gluten, I would 200% not be resistant to eating a can of it every now and again. 

There’s nothing like a thick, comforting soup that warms and fills the belly! While it’s been ages since I’ve eaten the canned soup, a cleaner, even tastier rendition is easy to make at home. Plus, I like adding bacon…so you know it’s MEGA!

In the past, when I’ve made beef soups on the stove top, the meat has always turned out hard and difficult to chew. Cooking it in the Instant Pot is the ultimate remedy and results in the most tender, flavorful meat without a huge time investment.

Let’s make it already!

Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Beef

Instant Pot Mexican shredded beef is a goof-proof approach to the best taco meat! This easy recipe makes restaurant-style shredded beef and takes just over an hour to prepare.

Alternatively titled: How to make 4 pounds of beef disappear in less than an hour.

Lately, my family has collectively turned over a new leaf. We have been meeting one night a week for family dinner for the last couple of months. You see, we have all lived in the same 40-mile radius for YEARS (there are LOTS of us) but it is rare that all of us get together for the same events. 

Several weeks ago, I hosted my family for family dinner. I made this Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Beef, which we used in tacos, burritos or bowls (it was a build-your-own-adventure sort of dinner), as well as teriyaki chicken, roasted vegetables, homemade rice pilaf, and caesar salad.

I thought for sure there would be leftovers to send home with my mom and siblings, but alas, there was not a morsel of food left.

How do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? Every year, I make Crock Pot Corned Beef & Cabbage and Cheese and Herb Irish Soda Bread.

While there’s no denying the joy of a good corned beef, I’m also a big fan of Irish Beef Stew. Traditionally, Irish Beef Stew is made using Guinness.

Because I know most folks around here are gluten-free (and often paleo), I figured I would create the recipe sans beer in the Instant Pot (bonus!). Ease of preparation, gluten-free, paleo-friendly…hitting all the marks here!

These Thai meatballs are HUGE on flavor and make for an amazing clean main entree. Keto, paleo, whole30 and just plain finger-lickin’ good, these meatballs are show-stopping delicious.

Thai Meatballs - keto, paleo, whole30, clean and delicious! |

I’m thrilled to share this recipe for Thai Meatballs with you, not only because it’s INSANELY good, but because it comes straight from Diane San Sanfilipo’s new cookbook, Keto Quick Start.

If you’re new to Diane’s work, she is the creator of Balanced Bites, a website and blog for healthy living, complete with health and wellness articles as well as recipes. She is also the author of Practical Paleo, and the 21-Day Sugar Detox Guide. In essence, woman knows what she’s talking about when it comes to nutrition!

Keto Quick Start by Diane Sanfilipo

Diane’s newest book, Keto Quick Start, is an incredible resource for those who are new to the ketogenic diet and want to do it correctly. She provides an amazing guide to understanding how keto works with your body to burn fat for fuel. She discusses the science behind why eating fat doesn’t make you fat, the healing properties of a ketogenic diet, and how to break down your meals according to your personal macro needs. Diane even provides suggested cooking tools to outfit your kitchen in order to make food prep a breeze.

Keto can be an extremely powerful and healing diet when executed correctly. Those who suffer from any form of inflammatory issues (joint pain/arthritis, gastrointestinal issues, skin problems, depression, etc) can see vast improvements of their symptoms through a low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet. In addition, keto is an incredible tool for weight loss for those who struggle to maintain a healthy body weight.

Instant Pot Short Ribs made paleo-friendly with tart cherry juice. Serve them atop mashed sweet potatoes for a delicious complete meal. | #grainfree #glutenfree #healthyrecipe

Words can’t adequately describe how much I love this recipe for Paleo Instant Pot Short Ribs. I’ve made short ribs countless times over the years, and the Instant Pot version is by far my favorite approach.

First off, cooking short ribs in the Instant Pot requires far less time than the stove top, oven, and slow cooker approach. For the longest time, I reserved short ribs for very special occasions because of the length of time required…but this method only takes just over an hour, if you can believe it!

Secondly, the actual end result is so consistently amazing – mouth-wateringly tender, fall-of-the-bone bliss…le sigh…

This is the life.
