The Instant Pot saves me when I need to get something hearty on the table quick, which let’s be serious, is basically all-the-time. This paleo beef soup is really more of a stoup, it’s thicker than soup because all the delicious root vegetables soften in the Instant Pot but isn’t quite a stew. Making a stovetop pot of slowly braised, rich beef soup is incredible on a lazy Sunday but isn’t it amazing to have the same soup pressure cooked for 30 minutes during a busy week!? As with all Instant Pot and slow cooker creations, I urge you to add a bit of salt, a splash of something acidic such as lemon or vinegar and fresh herbs once the cook-time is over to brighten your dish and avoid a stodgy meal.

Root Vegetables for Paleo Beef Soup - Instant Pot
This soup miraculously satisfies my entire family. My kids are slightly picky about food in weird ways, my son eats kale in his favourite soup (my paleo version of Ribollita) but won’t consider eating anything green in any other soup and my daughter is a toddler whose palate changes seemingly every day.  To make my life easier and theirs a little more predictable, I decided we’d theme out our meal planning and have soup night once a week.

My plan is this: each week I make a different soup and they are expected to earnestly try the soup but we have a plate of vegetables, guacamole, fruit and almond crackers on the side in case they dramatically cannot bear to eat one-more-bite (insert whines and my internal eye-rolling here). Oh, and back to those grain-free crackers…they make my world go round. Simple Mills makes them and I adore their sea-salt almond crackers, and you can order them online from Natura Market in Canada now (Yay! No more international shipping and duty!) so we basically always have three boxes in the pantry so we never run out!

Instructions
  1. Turn on the Saute function on your Instant Pot, add 1 tbsp avocado oil and allow Instant Pot to warm up. Season beef with salt and pepper. In two batches, cook beef until it is brown on all sides. Once browned, remove from Instant Pot and set aside in bowl.
  2. Add the remaining 1 tbsp of avocado oil to the Instant Pot and add shallot, celery, mushrooms, thyme, and carrots. Saute for 2 minutes, or until shallot is translucent. Stir in tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. By now, there should be crispy bits on the bottom of the pan, use 2 tbsp of sherry vinegar to deglaze or loosen the crispy bits from the bottom of the pan.
  3. Add parsnip and potatoes, and browned beef and juices from the bowl to the pot.
  4. In a small glass or bowl, mix 2 tbsp of tapioca flour to 1/4 cup of warm water - be sure to dissolve all tapioca flour into the water to create a slurry. Add 1 litre of beef stock, bay leaves and the slurry to the Instant Pot. Add 1 tsp salt and pepper.
  5. Cover and cook on Manual High Pressure for 30 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 20 minutes and then release manually. Remove bay leaves and taste for seasoning, adding salt, pepper and 1 tbsp sherry vinegar. When serving, top with fresh parsley.
