Have you been wondering if you can make easy to peel hard boiled eggs in your pressure cooker / Instant Pot (what is an Instant Pot?)? I bet you didn’t know that hard boiled eggs in a pressure cooker like the Instant Pot will render you hard boiled eggs that are SO EASY to peel…even eggs fresh from your own chickens? Like literally no peeling issues – the peel just comes right off?! I am so THRILLED I finally tried this this morning!
Here are the easy to do instructions for Instant Pot lovers…
Easy to Peel Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot
- 3 pastured eggs (preferably from your own chickens although mine were from a good friend’s!)
- 1 cup water (I use filtered)
Place the metal rack that came with your Instant Pot in the bottom of the pot. Pour in the cup of water. Place about 6-8 eggs (whoever many will fit) on the rack. Close the lid and hit ‘Manual’.
Set for 6 minutes. Once it beeps, let it count up to 6 minutes and then, using a towel, release the valve and it should only take a few seconds to release. Open the lid and place the eggs in an ice water bath for about 6 minutes. Peel and eat! You will be amazed at how easy these hard boiled eggs peel! I am in SHOCK!
I am making these to make my beet borscht recipe and so next I am pressure cooking some whole beets which I haven’t even peeled yet. Stay tuned for how that goes!
