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), but will have to find other guidance for timing. Remember that higher elevations need longer cooking time

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.

They are traditionally made with tequila, triple sec, and lime juice. One reason we love margaritas, though, is you can adjust ingredients to suit your […]
