Family Soup


  • Into the pressure cooker, pour the oil and heat (using the meat function with an open lid). Brown the meat on both sides, remove and sauté the onion.  Once desired browning and sautéing has been achieved, simply select the Warm/ Cancel button to stop the cooking function being used and move on to using another menu function if required in this recipe.
  • Return the meat, add soup mix and pour over the stock. Close and seal pressure cooker and cook for 25 min (soup function on the standard setting).
  • Once cooked, release the pressure, open and add all the remaining ingredients. Seal and cook for a further 15 minutes (rice function on the rich setting).
  • Once cooked, release the pressure and open. Cut the meat off the shinbone and cut into small pieces, before returning it to the soup.
  • Season to taste and serve.
