My mom makes this simple ground beef soup recipe all the time, it’s so easy and nutrient dense, perfect for this chilly winter weather! We ate pretty healthy growing up and my mom was a fast cook, I guess you have to be when you’ve got 4 kids running around. Well, I have 1 kid and I am always looking for ways to make my life easier in the kitchen, since I am not nearly as fast as my mom. I recently got an Instant Pot mostly for the pressure cooker setting. I went a little nuts and made two batches of my healing bone broth recipe but how could I not? This thing (the Instant Pot) produces a batch of bone broth in 2 hours flat and because it has a timer setting, I don’t have to worry about blowing up or burning down my kitchen! So, in order to get the best flavor/nutritious benefits in this recipe, I recommend you start by making a batch of bone broth then move on to the soup, keep scrolling to get the recipe. Enjoy!
