When we visit Branson or Gatlinburg, my family always has a few favorite spots. One of them is Dolly Pardon’s Dixie Stampede! From the kids to the adults, it’s always a blast for everyone! The animals, the comedy, the patriotism, the show, the stampede-ing, you’ve got to enjoy it all!
My father-in-law, who comes with us on all the vacations, always tries to get us to go back for a second go-round. He even skips out on a few meals in preparation for the “big night” at Dolly’s.
I’d put money that if he had to choose his favorite, it would be the Creamy Vegetable Soup and Homemade Biscuits. This soup’s a crowd-pleaser for sure.
Why Not Just Make it Myself?
After the night was over, I really started thinking. Why wait until the next vacation to savor the flavor again? And this Pressure Cooker Copycat Dixie Stampede Creamy Vegetable Soup was born!
If you’re a fan of this real-deal yum, then this will surely help out your hankering for a good creamy homestyle soup. With our family (of 2 kids), there’s always enough food to go around. The littles aren’t very good soup eaters, so we get our fill of this yummy soup.
If there’s anything you should know about this soup it’s that it’s as easy as it is delicious. Like almost all of our pressure cooker recipes, you can always make this recipe your own by making just a few alterations. As an example, if you like fresh veg, you can totally chop up your own veggies from your garden and add them in too without any changes to cook time! The Instant Pot (or your favorite brand) will do all the magic.
The soup is so simple! You make a blonde roux, sweat your garlic and onions, add the liquid, seasonings, and vegetables, give it a good stir, close and lock the lid, cook.
Sometimes food is as much about nostalgia as it is about taste. Our soup has both! If you are looking for nostalgia, comfort, and taste to take to the dinner table tonight, I’m telling you – this soup is it.
This Pressure Cooker Copycat Dixie Stampede Creamy Vegetable Soup is sure to bring you right back to your time at Dolly Pardon’s Stampede. You may even find yourself cheering on your home flag at the dinner table tonight. Yes. It’s that good! I love it when a good meal brings back good memories.
Make This Creamy Homestyle Soup work for you!
True confessions: this version is a little more chunky than the version you’ll eat at The Stampede. My family loves the chunkiness of it, but I know that texture or consistency is not for everyone.
If you prefer a thinner soup, you can cut the number of veggies, chop the veggies finer, or strain the veggies out of the soup after cooking it to get the veg flavor without all the chunks. Either way you make it, you will get that famous Dixie Stampede flavor in a creamy homestyle soup.
