How To Make Paleo Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

Alright, let’s get down to it! You’ll want to add the olive oil and onions to the Instant pot and press the Saute button. Saute until golden brown, stirring often.

Once the onions are nice and golden, add the ground sirloin to the Instant Pot and cook until the meat is completely cooked and the meat is well browned. 

Next, add the minced garlic and mix well. Cook for an additional minute and then turn off saute mode.

Add the fire roasted diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes, tomato paste, white rice, peppers, Italian seasoning, sweet basil, oregano, garlic salt, salt, pepper, and brown sweetener. Mix well.

While mixing, scrape the bottom of the pot for any bits that might be stuck. These are what we call “flavor bits”.

Add the chicken broth and water and mix one final time. 

Place the lid on the Instant Pot until it beeps and locks. Make sure the pressure valve is set to ‘SEALING’, and press the Manual button and set the time to 10 minutes. 

When done cooking, do a quick release, by gently turning the pressure valve from ‘SEALING’ to ‘VENTING’. Be careful not to burn yourself from the steam.

When all pressure has been released, open the lid to the Instant Pot and stir the soup.

Are Peppers Paleo Friendly?

You bet they are. Bell peppers are an incredibly healthy fruit. Yes, fruit. Did you know they were a fruit or did you think they were a vegetable?

They are in a similar boat as a tomato in that most people (myself included for a long time) thought they were a vegetable.

I even love to use peppers in my keto dishes as they also fit nicely in keto meals.

How to Store Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I like to make a big batch of this soup, eat some for dinner and eat the rest over the next couple days for lunch!

You simply need to store it in an airtight container (preferably glass) and keep it nice and cold in the fridge.

Can I Freeze This Gluten Free Stuffed Pepper Soup?

Totally! It gets a bit tricky when trying to freeze liquid vs a solid. I normally use my vacuum sealer and it doesn’t work so well with soups.

So what I do is use a large ziplock bag, put the soup in, set it on the counter and pinch it just above where the top soup line is. Then I slowly roll it to remove as much air as possible.

We all have our own ways that we’ve learned along the way, right?

The goal is to just get as much air out as possible and you’ll be fine!
