Ingredients
  • Eggs (as many as you like to fill the bottom of the pot rack)
  • 1 cup water
  • Instant Pot electric pressure cooker
Instructions
  1. Pour the water into the pot, and place the eggs in a steamer basket if you have one. If you don't, just use the rack that came with your pot.
  2. Close the lid, set for 5 minutes at high pressure.
  3. It will take the cooker approximately 5 minutes to build to pressure and then 5 minutes to cook. I let the pressure naturally reduce for an additional 5 minutes after the cooking cycle completed, and then did a quick pressure release. That's around 15 minutes, total.
  4. Place the hot eggs into cool water to halt the cooking process. You can peel immediately, or wait-- it's up to you. (The first time I did this, I didn't plunge into cool water, and they still peeled very easily. The eggs were just slightly more cooked.)
