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.

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.

Pressure Cooker Copycat Dixie Stampede Creamy Vegetable Soup

Yield: 6-8 Servings
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 3 minutes
Additional Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 tbs butter
  • 4 tbs flour
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 2 cups chicken broth/stock, or bone broth
  • 1 bag frozen chopped vegetables
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Turn your pressure cooker to the SEAR/SAUTE setting. Add butter. Once the butter is melted, add the flour and stir for about 3 minutes. 
  2. Add your chopped onion and garlic and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until they become soft.
  3. Add the broth/stock, chopped vegetables, salt, pepper, and cayenne. 
  4. Stir until mixed well. Close and lock lid, cook on HI pressure for 3 minutes.
  5. When the timer goes off, unplug the pot and let it naturally release pressure for 5 minutes, and then perform a manual release of the pressure. If soup begins to leak out of the vent, carefully close it and wait a few more minutes.
  6. Plug the pressure cooker back in and turn on to SEAR/SAUTE. Add the heavy cream and stir. Cook for 5+ minutes or until the mixture thickens. 
  7. If your mix is still too thin, you can add a cornstarch slurry at a 1:1 ratio. One tbs of cornstarch to 1 tbs water added to the soup and stir until thickened. 
  8. If your mix is too thick, you can add a little water or broth to desired consistency. 
  9. Enjoy!

  1. How would I cook this in a crockpot?

  2. I can you freeze leftovers?

  3. I am trying this recipe tonight. I have made copy cat versions of this soup before, and I have always used canned mixed vegetables-the Veg-all brand. And then i puree the soup to make it super creamy like Dolly’s. Ill be trying it in my pressure cooker tonight!

  4. We love Dixie Stampede soup and I love using my pressur cooker. Due to food allergies, I successfully modified this recipe so that it was dairy and gluten free. (Modifications~Earth balance soy free butter, gluten free flour, and almond milk [in place of the heavy whipping cream]) thanks for an awesome recipe.

  5. What size bag of vegetables? And my flour and butter turned to clumps.

      Hi, Jessica! Just a regular 12 oz bag. There’s a few things to consider when making a roux. Make sure that your ingredients are both equal, too much flour will result in a clumpy roux. So will a roux that has been overcooked. Also, the roux will be thick before you add the liquid, although it should not be clumpy.

    Forgot to take a pic! This was very good and took less than 30 min to make. It was very creamy and rich. My husband doesn’t like garlic, so I reduced that to 1 large clove. It also would be easy to do variations—make it a little lighter using half and half, adding cheese, or adding chicken. It’s definitely a “make again” for us. One note: I didn’t have any issues with the soup coming out the top during the quick release, but I my thickened liquid had stuck a little bit. It wasn’t an issue—everything mixed in when I stirred it.
