Your Instant Pot and hard boiled eggs are match made in heaven. Whether you're just hankering for a quick snack, plan to make a big batch of egg salad, or have a platter of deviled eggs in mind, you can finally sit back, relax, and let the pressure cooker do the leg work.

Ingredients

  • Instant Pot Electric Pressure Cooker
  • Steamer rack or basket (Included with the Instant Pot)
  • Pete and Gerry’s Organic Eggs (up to 8)
  • 1 cup cold water
  • Bowl with ice water (to stop the cooking once eggs are done)

Directions

Step 1

Add the steamer rack to the Instant Pot and pour in 1 cup of cold water.

Step 2

Place your eggs onto the rack and close the lid of the Instant Pot.

Step 3

Select Manual mode and LOW pressure. Set timer to 12 minutes.

Step 4

As soon as the 12 minutes are up, use a kitchen towel and carefully release the steam. Immediately add the eggs to the ice bath and allow to cool for 3-5 minutes. Peel and use immediately or store in the fridge for later use.

What would the procedure be for a stove top PC? Would like to give this a go.

Great question, Les. We haven't tested this recipe with a stove top pressure cooker - just electric. We can't guarantee that the timings will be the same, but it's worth a try. There are some great tips in Alton Brown's blog post on pressure cooked eggs as well: https://altonbrown.com/pressure-cooker-eggs-recipe/. Let us know how they turn out if you decide to give it a go.
