Learn how to make vegetable beef soup with our Instant Pot® Vegetable Beef Soup recipe, which makes preparing a savory, comforting soup faster and easier than ever. This flavorful  soup has tender beef, vegetables and pasta that cook all together in the Instant Pot®, so prep and cleanup are easy. Beef broth provides the rich base while tomato paste, thyme and parsley round out the complex flavors of this delicious and hearty soup.


  • 1/2 pound boneless beef chuck roast or stew beef, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 4 cups Swanson® Beef Broth
  • 2 carrot, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 Yukon Gold potato (6 ounces), unpeeled, cut into cubes (about 1 cup)
  • 4 ounces green beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch pieces (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup uncooked ditalini (small tube shaped) pasta
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


  • Tips

    • Time-Saving Tip: Save on prep time by substituting frozen vegetables for fresh.  Instead of adding the carrots with the broth, add frozen peas and carrots and frozen green beans at the end, and cook on the Saute setting for 5 minutes or until hot.
  • Step 1

    Season the beef with salt and pepper.  On a 6-quart Instant Pot®, select the Saute setting.  Heat the oil and add the beef and cook until well browned, stirring occasionally.  Add the tomato paste and cook and stir for 2 minutes (cooking the tomato paste will enhance the flavor).  Press Cancel.

  • Step 2

    Add the broth, carrots, potato, green beans, ditalini and thyme.  Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve. Pressure cook on High pressure, setting the timer to 8 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached- it takes about 10 minutes). When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.

  • Step 3

    Stir in the peas.  Season to taste and sprinkle with the parsley before serving.
