Food: Instant Pot/Crock Pot: Cold Night Soup


Winter is coming you guys.  Ok, so maybe it’s already here.  But the next and final season of Game of Thrones is certainly taking it’s sweet ass time, am I right?

In the meantime, to keep you warm on those cold dark nights- because “the night is dark and full of terror”… ok ok, I’ll stop with the GoT references… here is a super quick and easy soup to fill your belly and warm your heart.


It was passed down to me from my mother in law.  She had made it one day when we were there visiting over Thanksgiving and it immediately brought me back to being a kid and eating soup in my grandmother’s kitchen.  I had to have the recipe and couldn’t believe how easy it was!

I used to make this in the Crock Pot, which takes 4 hours, but I’ve adapted it to the Instant Pot- 35 mins at most (factoring in the pot coming to pressure and browning the beef).

You’re welcome.


I was able to make 2 batches, 24 cups of soup, package and freeze it in under an hour give or take!  (Don’t worry, for those of you that haven’t bought your Instant Pot YET, I’ve included the recipe below for you too)

I hope you enjoy this delicious soup!  This makes quite a bit (8-12 servings), so be sure to have some Tupperware or storage containers handy to freeze what you don’t eat.

It’s been the perfect go to when I need a quick dinner or lunch.
