Flavorful and filling, this Shortcut Hamburger Soup, made in your Instant Pot, will please even the pickiest of eaters.
This soup recipe takes a couple shortcuts to make meal prep go even quicker.
This past week, something that almost never happens, happened. I actually got sick. I so rarely catch viruses that it really threw me for a loop. And while I did take a couple days to rest and give my body what it needed to recover, I did still want to prepare meals for the family.
So it was my Instant Pot to the rescue. I made several recipes like this soup over the course of the week.
Recipes that are simple, yet good enough to keep everyone filled. And besides, is there anything better than a bowl of comforting soup when you are a little (or a lot) under the weather? I think not.
