Recipe: Instant Pot French Onion Soup

Instant Pot French Onion Soup

I’ve been craving caramelized onions lately and I couldn’t think of a better way to enjoy them then with this French onion soup. This tasty flavor-packed soup is all cooked in the pressure cooker. It’s super easy to make and only requires a few simple ingredients. It makes a great lunch or dinner in the fall and winter and will fill your home with a warm aroma.

The only step that takes time is caramelizing the onions. They take about 15-20 minutes to fully caramelize so make sure to set time aside for the caramelizing part. After the onions are caramelized, a few tablespoons of flour, garlic, and the broth is then added.
