Instant Pot Beef and Barley Soup

Instant Pot Beef and Barley Soup is warm, hearty, and loaded with flavor. Made in just one pot, this quick and easy dish is perfect for the whole family!

• Beef stew meat


• Pearled barley

• Baby carrots

• Diced tomatoes

• Rosemary


Set the Instant Pot to Sauté. When it displays “hot,” heat the olive oil and brown the beef on all sides, in batches (so the meat browns but doesn’t steam), adding more oil if necessary.


Do not cook the meat all the way through. Remove the beef and set aside.


Sauté the onion, carrots, and celery until almost tender, about 3 or 4 minutes, making sure to scrape up any brown bits stuck to the bottom.


Add the garlic and mushrooms and stir for another minute or two.


Return the meat to the pot and add the beef stock, potatoes, cabbage, mushrooms, barley, tomatoes, vinegar, bay leaf, herbs, salt, and pepper.
