Instant Pot Paleo Hamburger Soup

This humble and comforting Instant Pot Paleo Hamburger Soup is a recipe that I’ve been making for about a year now and it’s such a winner every time. I actually posted on Instagram Stories last winter about this soup and asked you if I should share the recipe, and an overwhelming majority of you answered, “hell yes!” I want to apologize because I totally forgot about it and I am now finally posting it.

This is the kind of soup that has a ton of veggies in it, but my husband even loves it every time I make it. He’s not a veggie lover like me but he’ll eat it in soups without complaining. Not only that, I made it using bone broth so it’s even more packed with all the gut-healing good-for-you nutrients! If you don’t have bone broth on hand, you can just use plain beef broth as well.

Whole30 Option

I just used my homemade paleo ketchup for this recipe that I always try to have on hand, which contains maple syrup, but you can easily make it Whole30-compliant by using a Whole30-friendly ketchup recipe that’s sweetened with dates or other fruits. I really like this one that really does taste like actual ketchup and will go great in this recipe. If you don’t want any sweetener at all, this is also a good one to try out.

With the weather cooling down these days, I’m planning to come up with more Instant and soup recipes so stay tuned! In the meantime, I hope you make this Instant Pot Paleo Hamburger Soup, because it’s so hearty, filling, and packed with all the healthy ingredients.

    Such a yummy and easy soup and and full of the fun flavors of burgers! The IP cooks this so perfectly too. Love simple soups like this during this time of the year.

  2. Kiran

    Mmmm .. this looks so perfect for the season. Loving soups now (well anytime, actually!) and also love my Instant Pot, so it’s a winning combo.

    I have an 8 qt Instant Pot, that I’ve not yet used. Can I double the recipe in the instant pot, or will that be too full? If so, any idea how long I’d need to cook it?

    Thank you!

      I’ve never tried this in an 8 qt IP so I’m not sure if it’ll fit a doubled batch, but you can definitely try it out! The cook time will remain the same.

    I made this today, and it is delicious! The only modification I made was to sub sweet potatoes for regular potatoes and reduce the ketchup to 1/4 cup, which was all that I had. The sweet potatoes are a little mushy but the soup is still awesome. (Next time I’ll reduce a minute or two and quick release.) I now have 3 servings in my freezer and a happy belly! I only wish I had an 8 qt IP so I can double the recipe next time.
