AIP Instant Pot Balsamic Beef & Cabbage Soup Recipe

As Fall weather starts moving it’s way into Illinois, I thought it was time to start creating some new, hearty soup recipes.  Of course, I pulled my trusty Instant Pot into service!  This AIP Instant Pot Balsamic Beef & Cabbage Soup was the first creation.  The flavor is so comforting and delicious. Because the stew meat is marinated before cooking, it comes out so tender and full of flavor.

  1. This sounds just right for dinner tomorrow night as it’s going to be a cold and rainy day. As always, I happen to have the ingredients on hand. Which balsamic vinegar do you use? I always seem to have a bad reaction to some of the ones I’ve tried.


    1. Hey Cookie, I love how you always have the ingredients on hand! I hate when I want to cook from a recipe, and have to go out hunting to find the ingredients. I usually use this balsamic vinegar. But, since it’s so pricey, I started using Trader Joe’s Gold series Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. I’ve had bad luck too with some of the less expensive ones. I really wish I was able to use them. It would certainly save me a lot of money! Be sure to let me know how you like the soup!


  2. Just to let you know that the soup was delicious. We must have very similar tastes in food and grocery shopping lists. Thanks for the balsamic recommendation. I have been able to use Spectrum Naturals balsamic, although where I live it’s often hard to get. I need to scout Amazon for it. Wish we had a Trader Joe’s close by, but the nearest one to me is 90 minutes away. Next time we go to “the big city” will stop in there and load up on a few things.


    1. Hey Cookie, so glad you liked the soup! I definitely think we have similar tastes in lots of things. I really hate when I want to cook up a recipe, and I have to search everywhere for the ingredients. Drives me up a wall! They opened the Trader Joe’s near me about 4 years ago. Before that, I was driving an hour away. So, I know how you feel. Now, if they would only keep the foods in stock that I use all the time. Enjoy your “big city” shopping trip! LOL!
