Egg drop soup is one of my favorite soups to buy when I order Chinese takeout.

I recently decided to do a whole Chinese meal right at home instead of ordering from a local restaurant! While I was cooking sweet and sour chicken, I decided to try making some egg drop soup in Instant Pot.

It was so quick and easy to make!

How To Make Egg Drop Soup In The Instant Pot

Reserve 1/2 cup of chicken stock in a cup and add the remaining chicken stock along with soy sauce, garlic powder, and ground ginger to the Instant Pot.

Close the Instant Pot lid and set the valve to a sealing position. Press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to 1 minute on High pressure. When the Instant Pot is done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam.

After the steam has been released, open the lid of the Instant Pot. Press the “Cancel” button and then press the “Saute” button on the Instant Pot.

Add the cornstarch to the reserved chicken stock and whisk with a fork until combined. Add the cornstarch mixture to the Instant Pot and stir until fully incorporated.

When the chicken stock in the Instant Pot comes to a boil, use a whisk to stir it in circles. While stirring, very slowly add the eggs (continue stirring as the eggs are added).

Cook the egg drop soup for another minute, then ladle into bowls, sprinkle with chopped green onion, and serve.
