Instant Pot Cheeseburger Soup Recipe Tips and Instructions
Start by turning the pot onto Saute. Add ground beef, onions and seasonings. Cook until beef is no longer pink and cooked through.
Remove the pot and drain the grease off of the ground beef. You can also soak up the excess grease with a paper towel.
Add the beef broth and potatoes to the pot. Give a quick stir then place the lid on. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 10 minutes. When time is up, do a quick release.
Turn the Instant Pot back to sauté mode. In a medium bowl, combine the milk and corn starch. Whisk until smooth, then pour the mixture into the Instant Pot. When the soup begins to simmer, turn off the Instant Pot. Stir in the shredded cheese one handful at a time, stirring between each addition.
