All of these Instant Pot soups & stews can be made in the Instant Pot in under an hour, some in less than 30 minutes. You’ll need about 10 minutes for it to come up to pressure and 10-20 for it come come down from pressure. I almost always give a full natural pressure release for soups, because it’s a little extra time to develop more flavor.

Avoiding the Burn Notice

With certain thick stews, it might be possible that you’ll get the burn notice. This happens when thick foods attach to the bottom of the pot, or when you’ve left some browned bits behind from sautéing. You can avoid this by adding 1/4 cup more water to the recipe than called for, and by being sure to scrape all the browned bits up before cooking.
