Instant Pot Hard “Boiled” Eggs are perfectly cooked and so easy to peel when cooked in the pressure cooker. Quick, easy and fail proof hard boiled eggs every time.
Hard boiled eggs are an essential item at my house! We love to just grab one for breakfast in the mornings, top our salads with with one for lunch or supper, and you can’t imagine a get together without having deviled eggs! There are so many ways to cook hard boiled eggs, but when I need them in a hurry, I turn to this pressure cooker method using my Instant Pot.
I usually make a dozen at a time since we tend to go through them throughout the week. All you need is your eggs, a pressure cooker (I use my Instant Pot) fitted with a steamer basket, and a cup of water. That’s it!
I arrange my eggs in a single layer on my steamer basket, pour in the water, secure the lid and set the timer. I’ve found that my whole family likes the eggs when cooked for 13 minutes on low pressure.
Then, I use the quick release to release all of the pressure from the Instant Pot and run them under cold water to cool off.
I also like to plunge them into a bowl filled with ice water.
I think they are so easy to peel and perfectly cooked every single time!
