Scale

  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 4 cups V8 (or tomato juice)

Instant Pot Instructions:

  1. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. When display says HOT add in the Italian sausage and break it up. Add in the onions. Brown for about 5 minutes. Drain off excess grease.
  2. Pour in the V8 and broth and scrape bottom of pot so that nothing is sticking. 
  3. Add in the potatoes, carrots, corn, green beans, cabbage, Worcestershire and cajun seasoning.

  5. Stir. Add salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and serve.
