Steaming eggs makes them easier to peel. This method in the Instant Pot worked well for me. When I tried the “5-5-5” method (5 min. high pressure, 5 min. Natural Pressure Release, 5 minutes ice bath), my eggs had a tinge of green around the yolk. This “4-3-6” method gave perfectly done eggs. Next time I found 6 minutes with immediate manual pressure release, then ice bath, gave me comparable results. One can also just steam the eggs on the stove in a pot (instead of boil), for about 11 minutes. Remember that higher elevations need longer cooking time

Ingredients

How to Make IP Hard “Boiled” Egg

Step-by-Step

  1. Put 1 cup water in 8 qt. Instant Pot. Place rack in pot. Place 8 eggs on rack, with space between each egg.
  2. I live at 670’ elevation. Higher elevations may have longer cooking times. Similarly, bigger eggs may need longer.

    Pressure cook high 4 min. 3 minutes NR. Immediately place eggs in an ice water bath for 6 minutes. (I partially fill sink with cold tap water & add all my ice packs to it.)

    Alternatively, you can pressure cook high 6 minutes, immediate manual pressure release, then ice bath for 5 minutes.

    Smack egg & roll on counter to crack shell, then peel. Store in fridge.
