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 a low-carb round-up. 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, 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.

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!

  1. Hi! I just wanted to say thank you so much for this soup! When my husband was doing the keto diet, I found this recipe. I didn’t know it then but now about a year and a half later, it is still a dish we eat at least twice a month, and even our 5 year old likes it. We usually use one 12 oz bag of frozen green beans though, but tonight I added two (and it took a lot longer to pressurize). We also now substitute ground beef for vegetarian meat crumbles (Gardein brand, half a bag) and it is just as great, we just add it in with the tomatoes and sautee the onions and garlic as our first step.
    Anyway, thank you so much!

  4. This is a terrific and easy recipe with a great flavor! The only small swap I made was one can of stewed tomatoes for diced, as it’s what I had on hand, and I think it worked really well 🙂 This will go in our soup rotation for sure–thank you!

  6. How can we get the nutritional information on your recipes?

    • More than a year ago I switched my site to WordPress, which created the need to edit by hand to add more than 2,000 recipes to the preferred format for google. I have been working on that (with three assistants) for more than a year, so there is no possibility of me being able to calculate nutritional information until that project is completed. And I know that once I start doing nutrition info on one recipe people will expect to see it on every recipe, which is why I have decided to keep these two projects completely separate.

      If you look after the recipe itself, I give two links (where it says “Nutritional Information”) for suggestions of two ways to get that information. That’s all I am able to do at this time.

  11. 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!
