90 Minute Instant Pot Beef Noodle Soup Recipe

beef noodle soup

Ah, homemade beef noodle soup. Tender beef. Yummy noodles. Delicious, deep rich broth. Comfort food extraordinaire! And with an Instant Pot, you can get that simmered-all-day flavor in about an hour and a half from start to finish!

I used my new favorite cut of meat in this recipe, boneless beef ribs. The meat is full of flavor and super tender when cooked in an Instant Pot. Also, it’s’ very economical because there’s almost no waste.

I was late to the Instant Pot party, but I’ve known about the magic of pressure cooking for years. I was a child bride when I got my first pressure cooker!

My young husband gave me a pressure cooker on our first Christmas together! What a romantic, right? But you know what? I loved it and used it for years until the handles broke off, and the parts were no longer available!

How To Unlock The “Souper Powers” Of Your Instant Pot

Today’s Instant Pot is ingenious. It combines multiple functions in one handy, safe, and easily cleaned appliance. It’s an incredible device! Kudos to you, inventor, whoever you are! I sincerely hope you have become filthy rich.

First, the saute function makes quick work of browning the meat. That is a critical step to achieving a beautiful, rich broth, which is, without question, what makes great soup great. As they say in the song, it’s all about the base. (tee hee)

So, that’s where a rich, hearty broth begins. Season and brown the beef, and don’t overcrowd the pot when you do. The meat needs to be seared and browned, not steamed. Don’t hurry this step. Your patience will be richly rewarded!

Remove the meat and set aside while adding the bouillon, garlic, soy sauce, and 2 cups of water. Stir to loosen up all the browned bits of goodie from the bottom of the pot. Return the beef to the pot and pressure cook for about 40 minutes. While it’s cooking, slice the carrots and celery and chop the onion.

Let the pressure drop a little bit, and then you can do a quick release. Remove the cooked beef from the Instant Pot and set it aside. When it’s cooked, here is how the meat will look. Tender, juicy, awesome. Look at the gorgeous soup base it makes!

Reset the Instant Pot to saute and add the remaining 8 cups of water. When it comes to a boil, add the vegetables and noodles. Adjust the saute setting to a good simmer and cook until the veggies and noodles are tender. While the noodles and vegetables cook, shred the beef.

Return the shredded beef to the pot and adjust seasonings to taste. You might want to add a bit more bouillon but taste it first! Add salt and pepper to taste, if you like, and parsley! There’s something about parsley that makes everything taste better, like green magic!
