Simple Instant Pot Green Beans

An easy way to make delicious green beans!

Serves: 4, Prep Time: 10 minutes, Total Time: 25 minutes.


  • 1 lb green beans

  • 1 cup water

  • Desired seasonings


  1. Wash green beans and trim ends.

  2. Pour 1 cup of water into the inner pan of a pressure cooker.

  3. Place the steamer basket in the pressure cooker and put green beans in the basket.

  4. Place lid on the pressure cooker and seal the vent knob. Turn to high pressure and set for zero minutes. Do a quick release of pressure.

  5. By the time the Instant Pot has reached pressure, the green beans will be crisp tender. If you would like your green beans a bit on the softer side, set for 1 minute on high pressure.

  6. Remove green beans from Instant Pot and place in a large serving bowl. Serve with your favorite seasoning (I like lemon zest with salt and pepper).
