How to Make Black Beans In A Pressure Cooker

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a 6-quart pressure cooker over medium-high heat, pour in 3 tablespoons oil.
  • 2Add the ham hock and onions and cook until the onions are wilted and the ham hock is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  • 3Throw in the garlic and bay leaf and cook for 1 minute more.
  • 4Add the beans and give a good stir.
  • 5Pour in the water; add the remaining tablespoon of oil, 1 tablespoon of salt, and a couple of grindings of pepper.
  • 6Following the manufacturer's instructions, cover, lock the lid, and bring to high pressure. Lower heat to maintain pressure and start timing. Cook at high pressure for 25 minutes.
  • 7Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • 8Release the steam, again following the manufacturer's directions. If the beans are underdone, simmer them with the lid off until tender.
  • 9Remove bay leaf and discard.
  • 10Pick meat from ham hock and add to beans; discard the bone.
  • 11Taste and adjust seasoning.
  • 12Cook's note:
    The oil prevents the beans from foaming and clogging the steam vent of the pressure cooker.
