- On saute setting, while stirring and breaking up the meat, saute the meat and onions until cooked through.

- Stir well. Be sure soup ingredients have not exceeded fill line.
- Set Instant Pot to HIGH pressure for 10 minutes.
- Allow the pressure to decrease naturally for 5 minutes before releasing the pressure valve.
*I do not drain the rendered fat, therefore, I choose organic grass-fed beef.
**Time-saver when needing chopped garlic is to use the jarred product found in the produce grocery department.
***Homemade beef stock is best. When purchasing, I try to find products with no unnecessary ingredients like sugar, MSG or yeast extract (which is MSG).
