⭐Add in the broth, bay leaf, Italian seasoning, thyme, salt, and pepper. Stir.

⭐Cancel the Saute function.
Press the Manual (or Pressure Cook) Button, or dial on Ultra. Set time to 4 minutes using the +/- buttons, or dial. High Pressure. It will take several minutes for the pressure to build.

⭐When cook cycle ends, let pot naturally release pressure for 15 minutes. Then manually release the remaining pressure by turning the knob to Venting (or push the button on the Ultra). You may want to do this in bursts at first to make sure no soup spews out with the steam!

By chopping the kielbasa and your vegetables a bit chunkier, they
will be a firmer when pressure cooked.
