To make Potato Leek and Bacon Soup, first we need to prep all of the ingredients.
Lets start by cutting leeks in half and chopping them.
After you chop leeks place them in a big bowl and wash them with cold water until nice and clean.
Next, prepare the rest of the ingredients: 5 cups of Homemade Chicken Broth, 5 slices of bacon, salt, pepper & 1/2 teaspoon thyme.
Peel and dice about 5 potatoes and chop fresh parsley for garnish.
Next, slice 5 slices of bacon into tiny pieces. Place bacon into the Instant Pot and turn it on saute mode.
Cook bacon for 10 minutes or until crispy color, stirring few times.
Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towel, leave 2 tablespoons of bacon grease inside the Instant Pot.
Now, add chopped leeks, cook for 5 minutes, stirring few times.
After 5 minutes, add diced potatoes and pour in 5 cups of Chicken Broth.
Also, into the same pot add salt and pepper to taste and 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme.
Cover the lid and cook 10 minutes on a Soup/Broth mode. Make sure the steam release handle is in the ‘Sealing’ position.
Carefully, quick release the pressure by turning the steam release handle into venting position.
I like to use a clean spoon or a towel for turning the steam handle, so I don’t burn my fingers by HOT steam.
Open the lid and serve Potato Leek Soup with bacon and fresh parsley. Enjoy!
