Instant Pot Cabbage and Tomato Soup With Beef Or Pork

All of the vegetables in this soup are raised in our garden but are also readily available at local farmer's markets. We make the beef broth from local mostly grass-fed beef (see recipe for Instant Pot Bone Broth). Our pork and beef are raised by local family farmers.

1/2 cup diced onion

1/2 cup diced celery

1/2 cup diced carrot
