Instant Pot Low-Carb Goulash Soup with Ground Beef and Peppers!
I’ve become a huge fan of making soup in the Instant Pot for a dinner that’s so quick and easy, but you can definitely make this Instant Pot Low-Carb Goulash Soup with Ground Beef and Peppers in any kind of pressure cooker you happen to have, or use the instructions from this similar stovetop goulash soup and make it on the stove! But this soup is so tasty that if you haven’t tried this popular recipe I am urging you to try it!
This soup is all about the spicy paprika, so if you’re not a fan of that flavor it may not be for you. I use both sweet and hot paprika for the soup, but if you don’t have any hot paprika (sometimes called sharp) use a bit more sweet and a tiny pinch of cayenne. I urge you to use real Hungarian Paprika if you can; the flavor is so different from the paprika you get in the grocery store. I’m a fan of Szeged Paprika (affiliate link), which I’ve been buying for years from Amazon.com, but any brand of Hungarian Paprika will be better than the stuff from the grocery store.
And definitely serve this tasty soup with some sour cream to add at the table. Personally I’d never get tired of the Hungarian flavors in this tasty soup!
How to Make Instant Pot Low-Carb Goulash Soup with Ground Beef and Peppers:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe.)
- Turn the Instant Pot to saute’, heat 2 tsp. olive oil, and brown the ground beef, breaking apart with a turner as it cooks.
- When the beef is mostly browned, remove to a bowl (or drain on paper towels if you see much fat on the meat.)
- While beef cooks, cut up the onions and red pepper.
- Add the other tsp. olive oil with the onions and peppers and cook 3-4 minutes.
- Then add the minced garlic and the sweet and hot paprika and cook 2-3 minutes more, stirring a few times. (Do not skip that step of cooking the paprika.)
- Put the ground beef back into the Instant Pot with the beef stock (or canned beef broth) and petite diced tomatoes.
- Lock the lid, choose SOUP (low pressure on my model) and set the time for 15 minutes.
- When it stops cooking, let the pressure release naturally for a few minutes, then quick release the rest.
- Serve hot, with a dollop of sour cream if desired.
The addition of sour cream at the table is highly recommended by me, but this is dairy-free without the sour cream!
