I always made this on my stove top pressure cooker but tried it this week in my electric Instant Pot and it worked out great. When I want split pea soup in a hurry, my pressure cooker is my best friend! Here I chopped up some of my leftover ham and sauteed it as my garnish.

Whenever I make a ham, I always save the ham bone for this delicious pressure cooker Split Pea Soup with Ham recipe.

This bone was leftover from mt Apricot-Rum Glazed Ham recipe. When making soups and stews in the pressure cooker, very little liquid evaporates, so I usually cut the liquid down a bit. I found a great Pressure Cooker Cheat Sheet on Pressure Cooker For Dummies.

I used Better than Bouillon, I love the flavor it adds to soups, but you can use chicken broth in it’s place if you prefer. This soup freezes well, leftovers are perfect for lunch or make a batch for once a month cooking.

    Another delicious recipe! Sauteed the veggies in my Instapot along with the ham bone for extra flavor. Followed the rest of the recipe and in 20 minutes I had a delicious soup that thickened a bit as it cooled. Happy New Year!

  2. I made this last night and it was oh so delicious. I used smoked Ham Hawks at the grocery store and Ham better than bouillon and it was divine. Delicious smoky flavor. Can’t wait to make this again!!
