This easy yet hearty Pork, Smoked Sausage and Bean Instant Pot soup comes together quickly and easily for busy weeknights!
Soup in the middle of the summer? I very well could possibly be in denial that we’re only in the early days of August… I’ll admit, that I think I’m over this Arizona heat and ready for temps to drop.
And for pumpkin spice. Pumpkin spice everything. 🎃
I have been on such a soup kick this last week – in efforts to keep the house cool in this heat, leaning greatly on my Instant Pot for food prep. Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Soup, Pesto Chicken Soup, you name it, I love it. ❤️
Who knew the Instant Pot would be such a great appliance for making soups? So helpful, in fact, that you will want to bookmark these 15 soups to try in your Instant Pot this fall,.
This soup is a classic, for sure. Definitely a meal in itself, it incorporates beans, smoked sausage and pork in a rich and hearty soup that will fill up your belly for hours. Though optional, if you like a smokier flavor to your soup, stir in a smidge of liquid smoke (1/2 tsp or so should be enough).
This pork, smoked sausage and bean soup has been popular here for years. We finally made it in the Instant Pot and was easy and perfect for a busy night.
Pork, Smoked Sausage and Bean Soup
To make this soup, saute your chopped onion, and minced garlic in your Instant tPot. Add in the boneless pork and saute just until it starts to turn brown. Add your seasonings, diced tomatoes, one can of your (rinsed) beans, 1/2 C. chicken stock and your smoked sausage.
Use the soup feature to cook the soup 20 minutes; allow it to release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing remaining pressure. We love to serve this with fresh parmesan and chopped parsley – yum!
One of the best things about this soup is that it can be as thick or as thin as you would like. Mash the beans a bit for a thicker soup, or leave as is and add more broth if you prefer something thinner. Any leftover soup will always be a little thicker the next day.
Make extra soup & freeze it for another busy night, or welcome a new neighbor with a batch of warm soup. I’ve also done soup exchanges in the past with neighbors and that’s always a fun way to score something different yet help out a neighbor at the same time!
