Which Instant Pot is best?
There are a few different methods for making eggs in the Instant Pot, and you’ll discover what works best for you! I’ve found that what’s called the “5-5-5 method” works the best, but the “6-6-6- method” works as well.
What does that mean?? It means, you cook the eggs on HIGH pressure for 5 minutes, then when the timer goes off, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure. THEN put the eggs into an ice bath for another minutes. After that, you can peel your eggs and you’ll see how easily the shells slide off.
If you notice your eggs aren’t cooked, you can try the 6-6-6 method exactly the same way, just adding an extra minute to each step.
Simple enough right?
Here we go.
Grab some eggs. As many as you want. I’ve done 18 at a time before. 🙂
For this recipe you can use the trivet that came with the Instant Pot, or you can use a steamer basket. Both will work perfectly!
Add 1 Cup of water to the Instant Pot. Then place the trivet in the bottom. Stack the eggs on top of the trivet. Close the Instant Pot and turn the venting knob to sealing. Cook the eggs on HIGH pressure for 5 minutes, then when the timer goes off, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.
Next, carefully lift the Instant Pot inner pot out and carry it to the sink using a towel or Instant Pot mitts. Fill with water and ice and leave the eggs to cool for at least 5 minutes.
Now you can peel your eggs, and watch how easily the shells slide off!
Look at that! 🙂
YUM! Enjoy 🙂
