How to make pressure cooker Instant Pot beans without having to soak. Works with black, pinto, garbanzo and white beans. The quickest way to make beans!

Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 pound of beans, rinsed and picked over to remove debris
  • 9 cups of water

Instructions

  1. Place beans and water in the Instant Pot.
  2. Seal the Instant Pot and make sure the pressure value is set to “sealing.”
  3. Press the “manual” or “pressure cook” button so that it is set to high pressure and use the “-” and “+” buttons to adjust the timer to 12 minutes.
  4. When the timer goes off and the beans are done cooking, use the natural pressure release (i.e. do nothing).
    Note: DO NOT use quick release when making more than one pound of beans.
  5. Once the valve indicator has gone down, it is safe to open the Instant Pot.
  6. Drain the beans and use them in your favorite recipes!

Notes

Anytime I make plain beans, I leave them absolutely plain. That allows me to use the beans in both sweet and savory recipes without a problem. Unless you are making a big pot of beans for one particular recipe, I suggest you make them plain as well.
