Hard Boiled Eggs in the INSTANT POT

I am so EGGScited to share with you another way to use the Instant Pot. Making up a batch of hard boiled eggs just got easier using the Instant Pot. Not that it is real tough to boil an egg, and you will only save around 3 minutes, there ARE some great benefits by using this 7 in 1 pressure cooker to cook eggs.

1-   You can cook a lot more eggs in less time

2-  No babysitting required. Once you begin the process you can go do other things.

3-  There is no green or grey ring around the yolk. Usually caused by overcooking.

4-  They are easy to peel.

 

All you need is

  • Instant Pot If you don’t have one, I hope you seriously think about it. This baby is great for a lot more things than eggs, trust me!
  • Eggs
  • 1 cup water
  • steam basket or rack

This is what you do

Place steamer basket or interior rack in the pot. Gently place the desired amount of eggs in. You can get up to 16 large eggs in the pot.

Add 1 cup water

Choose [manual]

Reduce time to 7-8 minutes

This time will give you a soft firm yolk. If you want them cooked more, simply add 1 minute. If you want them more runny, reduce by 1 minute. It’s all up to your liking. After the first batch, you will have a good idea of what you like.

When the buzzer goes off, let it sit for 2 minutes.

What I love about the Instant Pot, is that you can tell how long it has been sitting after the buzzer goes off. In this case, wait for it to say L2:00. Then manually release whatever pressure is left by pressing the pressure valve away from you.

 

Place the eggs in a bowl of very cold water.

Let them sit in there for 5 minutes. You can either eat them right away or store in the fridge for up to one week.

If you are storing your eggs, I do recommend peeling them before you store them. This will make them much easier to peel.

Place the cooked eggs in a zip bag with a paper towel in the refrigerator and you have a protein packed nugget at your fingertips.

Boiled eggs are great for

  • breakfast
  • added to a salad
  • eaten plain for a healthy snack
  • tossed in stir fried rice
  • sliced on bread for yummy sandwich
  • chopped,added to tuna and a little mayo for an egg salad

However you eat your eggs, I hope you enjoy making a batch of hard boiled eggs up in the Instant Pot.

Feel free to share some of your great hard boiled egg ideas with the rest of us.

Enjoy your day!

Instant Pot Rice – Perfect Every Time!

When you make rice, does it come out perfect every time? Mine never did, even when I used a rice steamer. But now it does because I learned how to make it using the amazing Instant Pot. If you don’t have one yet, I highly advise you look into it. This is one of the best purchases I have made. You can read more about it here.

When I purchased my Instant Pot I was able to get rid of my manual pressure cooker, crock pot, and my RICE COOKER. Not only do I have more room in my pantry without all those other gadgets, I have one machine that does it ALL, and it does it well!

Whether it is served by itself as a side dish, or included in a recipe, rice is something that we consume a lot in our home. It  is inexpensive, nutritious and very easy to make.

I have mentioned before that I own TWO of these babies. (Yep, two Instant Pots). Here is the thing, I can whip up a batch of rice in one pot while I am steaming a yummy pot of broccoli in another. They come in handy when I am roasting a chicken. I can use the other one to either make rice or some steamed veggies. Some may think this is a little extreme, but I find it very useful. Something you may want to consider?

I am going to show you instructions on how to make WHITE and BROWN RICE.

to make white rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups white rice (Short and long grain Basmati or Jasmine)
  • 2 cups water (you can use broth, but I find it doesn’t change the flavor much)
  • 1 Tablespoon oil (avocado, olive. ghee or butter)
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • spices (optional) some options  1/2 teaspoon of turmeric, 4-5 cracked cardamon pods, or whatever else fancies you.

*As you can see, the water to rice ratio is 1:1, so it is easy to make bigger or smaller batches. This recipe will serve 4 – 5.

Instructions:

1- Rinse Rice

To rinse or not rinse rice before cooking? This is a topic that I have found to be quite controversial and there are a lot of different opinions. I like to rinse my rice before cooking. Rinsing helps reduce the starchy residue. I think it does give it a not so sticky texture, and I like to think I am washing away any icky residue that may be on it. Some times I rinse, and other times I don’t. Totally up to you.

Using a mesh strainer, rinse rice under cool water until water runs clear.

2- Place Rice in Instant Pot Inner pan

3- Pour water over rice

4- Add the oil of your choice and salt (

Adding a little oil keeps the rice from sticking to the pan and prevents the Instant Pot from sputtering and spitting while the rice is cooking.

5- Give it a little stir

6- Place the lid on the Instant Pot

Secure in place and set to the “sealing position”.

8- Press “RICE” button

Adjust time to 12 minutes if it doesn’t go there automatically.

9- Go about your business

This is what I love about this machine. You don’t have to babysit.

10- Natural Release for 10 minutes

After you here the beeper, let it sit for 10 minutes. You can tell how long it has been by looking at the display. After 10 minutes, if the pressure is still up, manually release pressure.

12- ta dah! Fluff with a fork and enjoy!

*** If the rice is a little too “al dente” for you and you want it softer, try adding an additional small amount of water. Adjust to your liking.

to make Brown Rice

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Brown Rice
  • 2 1/2 cups Water
  • 1 Tablespoon oil of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • optional spices

Instructions:

The only thing different will be the timing.

1- Click on “manual button” at “high pressure”

2- Adjust time to 23 minutes

3- Natural release and sit for 10 minutes.

4- Remove pressure and lid.

Rice freezes really well. I like to make a big batch of rice and freeze in quart size bags. It thaws quickly and really saves a lot of time for a quick meal.

 

Enjoy!
