Hearty Beef and Vegetable Soup With Mushrooms

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 35 mins

Quick cooking in the pressure cooker, but will taste like you cooked it all day. If you don't have a pressure cooker, do it stove top and cook until you think it's done!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 6-quart or larger pressure cooker mix together onion, carrots, garlic, celery, parsley, potatoes, beef, and tomatoes with their liquid and broth.
  2. Close lid and lock.
  3. Place over high heat and bring to high pressure (about 15 minutes, depending upon altitude). Adjust heat to maintain high pressure and cook 20 minutes.
  4. Reduce pressure with quick release method by placing cooker in sink under cold running water.
  5. Remove lid after pressure dissipates, tilting lid away from you to avoid a steam burn.
  6. Stir in beer, Swiss chard, mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper.
  7. Return to pot and bring to a simmer, covered (no pressure) over medium heat for approx 10-15 minutes.

might i suggest browning beef and caramizing the vegetables in a bit of oil in the cooker on med-hi heat before adding the tomatoes and starting pressure

A delicious hearty Soup, We really enjoyed this on a cold winter evening. Easy to make, I used regular beer, Other than that made it just like the recipe said using the pressure cooker. I used spinach , then noticed it mentioned Swiss chard in the instructions, I think either is good.Thank you Carrie for a yummy dinner.
