Pressure Cooker Recipe | Savory Pork Soup
It’s hard to believe another summer is coming to a close, where did the time go? It’s hard to believe, but soon it will be sweater weather. And the colder days and nights often call for something easy to make, hot, delicious, and above all, comforting.
And here’s where Smithfield® Marinated Fresh Pork comes to the rescue because their high-quality and hand-selected cuts of premium pork are so easy to use in almost any recipes and before you know it dinner is served.
We start this easy and delicious soup off by browning the tender cuts of pork (I’m using Smithfield Roasted Garlic & Cracked Black Pepper Fresh Pork Tenderloin) in the Instant Pot with a bit of olive oil. I also love how the pork comes already marinaded, which saves me time, and that’s all good. And if you’re a fan of your Instant Pot, our Orzo Vegetable Soup recipe is another great one to make!
And by adding fresh veggies like carrots, celery, and onions, it’s easy to see just how straightforward this recipe is to bring together in only over thirty minutes. Feel free to custom make this delicious soup according to you and your family’s particular tastes.
The addition of fresh sweet corn off of the cob was a good call. My boys went back for seconds and thirds. I love making homemade foods I know my boys will enjoy and ask for again and again. Winning!
In my book, tons of color means lots of fresh and delicious flavor, and this easy and comforting soup has plenty of both.
I love adding homegrown herbs like this bunch of thyme cut from our family garden. I also added fresh parsley, and both herbs added a distinct flavor profile to this bursting with flavor soup.
I also added other layers of rich flavor with the addition of balsamic vinegar and bourbon barrel stout beer.
