For me 2017 was definitely the year for Instant Pot Recipes on Kalyn’s Kitchen. It seemed like more and more of you were discovering the Instant Pot this year, and back in October I posted The BEST Low-Carb Instant Pot Soup Recipes for the Friday low-carb round-up on Kalyn’s Kitchen. Then I kept seeing even more low-carb Instant Pot Soups so recently we shared 50 Amazing Low-Carb Instant Pot Soup Recipes on my other site, Slow Cooker or Pressure Cooker.

So when I pondered what to feature for my last favorite recipe before I go to Mexico for the holidays, I thought of this delicious Instant Pot Low-Carb Soup with Ground Beef, Green Beans, and TomatoesKara and I experimented and came up with this easy Instant Pot soup with ground beef back in 2016, and it’s probably still the easiest Instant Pot Soup I’ve made, and definitely one of the tastiest. We actually created this out of things we had in the fridge, and were thrilled when it turned out to be a keeper!

The good news for those who don’t want to join The Church of Instant Pot is that you can easily make this on the stove. So if you don’t have an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker, I’ll give suggestions at the end of the recipe for a stovetop version. No matter which method you use, if you’re looking for an easy low-carb soup and you have ground beef in the freezer I bet you’ll like this as much as we did! (And did you notice that it’s red and green? You know how I love to find low-carb red and green foods!)

Happy Holidays to all my faithful readers and blogging friends! I’m actually leaving tomorrow and staying in Mexico for the rest of the year (Squeal!) but I do have a few year-end posts and a fabulous new recipe for January 1 scheduled for you, and I’ll try to keep track of things here the best I can. I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.

Saute the beef in the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker until it’s nicely browned; add the chopped onion, minced garlic, dried thyme, and dried oregano, and cook 2-3 minutes more. Add the petite diced tomatoes and juice and canned beef broth and let it start to heat while you prep the beans.

Trim both ends of the green beans and cut them into short bite-sized pieces. Add green beans to the Instant Pot or pressure cooker. For the Instant Pot, use the soup function to cook the soup (30 minutes on low pressure for another type of pressure cooker.) Use the quick release method to release the pressure.

Serve hot. This is wonderful with freshly grated Parmesan to add at the table, but if you omit the Parmesan it’s a Paleo or Whole 30 approved recipe, so take your choice on that!

Instant Pot Low-Carb Soup with Ground Beef, Green Beans, and Tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 T minced garlic (We used minced garlic from a jar.)
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 lb. fresh green beans, ends trimmed and cut into short pieces about 1 inch long
  • 2 cans (14.5 oz. each) petite-diced tomatoes with juice
  • 2 cans (14 oz. each) beef broth (or use 3 1/2 cups homemade beef stock, which will be even better)
  • salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste
  • freshly grated Parmesan for serving (optional but highly recommended unless you are avoiding dairy)

Directions:

  1. Turn the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker to saute, or turn on heat under the stovetop pressure cooker, add the oil and heat a minute or two, add ground beef and cook the beef until it’s nicely browned, breaking apart with a turner as it cooks.
  2. When beef is browned, add the chopped onion, minced garlic, dried thyme, and dried oregano and cook  about 3 minutes more.
  3. Add the petite-dice tomatoes with juice and the beef broth and let them start to heat in the pressure cooker while you prep the beans.
  4. Trim beans on both ends, then cut them into short 1-inch pieces. Add beans to the pressure cooker.
  5. Lock the lid closed and switch the Instant Pot to the SOUP function. (If you don’t change anything, that will cook 30 minutes at LOW PRESSURE.) For another type of pressure cooker, use choose LOW PRESSURE or bring stovetop pressure cooker to LOW PRESSURE and cook 30 minutes.
  6. Use the quick release method to release the pressure.
  7. Season soup to taste with salt and fresh-ground black pepper.
  8. Serve hot, with freshly grated Parmesan to add at the table if desired.

Stovetop Cooking Instructions:

  1. To cook this recipe on the stove, use a large heavy dutch oven type pot that you can both brown and simmer in.
  2. Heat oil in the pot and cook the ground beef as above, using medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium and add the chopped onion, minced garlic, dried thyme, and dried oregano and cook about 3 minutes more.
  3. Add the petite-diced tomatoes with juice, beef broth, and 1/2 can water, turn heat to medium low, and let the soup start to simmer while you prep the beans.
  4. Trim both ends of beans, then cut them into 1 inch pieces.
  5. Add beans to the soup, turn to low, and let soup simmer about 45 minutes, or until beans are as soft as you’d like them and the flavors are well blended. (You may need to add more liquid, or even additional beef broth, depending on how hot your stove is on the low setting.)
  6. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper.
  7. Serve hot, with freshly grated Parmesan to add at the table if desired.

  1. Thank you for giving more than one cooking method. This looks really good.

  2. Thanks for giving directions for a stovetop pressure cooker, Kalyn. I have been considering purchasing an Instant Pot but the reviews of late on Amazon about lack of longevity and poor customer service have made me decide to stick to my old faithful stovetop unit and save the cash to buy cookbooks!

    • No problem Cindy! I haven't seen those reviews, so I just clicked through to Amazon to check and it looks like 80% of people gave it 5 stars, and the top review says they have had it four years. I am skeptical I guess, because I know so many people who have it and love it, including a few people who are bloggers and use it heavily. But if you're happy with the stovetop model, why switch!

  3. Thanks for posting an Instant Pot recipe, because I just took advantage of Cyber Monday sales and treated myself to one! I'm looking forward to taking it for a spin, and I can start with soup by following your lead.

  4. Lydia, hope you are going to like the instant pot as much as I do!

  5. Awesome recipe! Can you freeze the leftovers? Thank you so much for the stove top option which I used!

  6. Cooking this now but the soup function actually cooks at high pressure so I'm kind of freaking out!

    • Rachel, another person also told me that hers is also high pressure on the Soup setting, which makes me think that Instant Pot doesn't standardize the settings for different models. That is so weird. I would probably reduce the time if you're using high pressure or use the manual setting and cook 30 minutes on low pressure. I bet it will still be fine though if you don't see this in time. Hope so!

  7. I substitute ground italian sausage for the ground beef. My family likes it spicy! Comes out great. Thanks for this. We make it all the time now.

  8. How many carbs? We just got an Instant Pot last week but my husband is concerned the green beans might be too high in carbs for him. He's doing a very low carb diet.

    • I don't count carbs but you can look after the recipe and there are two different ways that you can calculate it. However green beans are extremely low in carbs and I wouldn't I wouldn't label the recipe low-carb if it wasn't low-carb so I'm pretty confident that it'll be OK.

    • I should've made it clear to look where it says nutritional information right after the recipe.

  9. Thanks for all the instant pot recipes. I will be trying some of them shortly. Your web site is just full of good information. Keep it up.

  10. We used Italian sausage as suggested by someone and frozen green beans because that's what we had on hand. Also added a zucchini because it was going to turn. Followed the instructions posted and used the soup function on our instant pot as is, no time adjustment. Came out great! Thank you!

  19. My mouth can’t stop watering. This simple recipe seems to be awesome. I must try this for my friends at weekend to taste. Thanks for your awesome sharing. Love instant pot recipes.

  20. I doubled your recipe and added a can of French onion soup, upped the Italian seasons and a block of cream cheese. OMG it is awesome.

  21. This was a big hit at my house! I used tomatoes from my garden instead of the canned ones and it was wonderful! It’s low calorie too! I used a calorie calculator and it was about 130 calories per cup! Win-win! Thanks so much for this!
