How to make easy to peel hard boiled eggs in the instant pot.
- Place the steamer trivet into the bottom of the instant pot. This is the metal ring with the feet and handles that came with your instant pot. You’ll want to put the feet facing down, and let the handles rest along the sides of the inner pot.
- Add 1 cup of water to the pot – it will sit below the steamer/trivet.
- Add your eggs to the instant pot. Place them gently on top of the metal trivet.
- Close the lid, twist it to lock the lid, then make sure the valve is set to sealing.
- Press the pressure cook button. Then set the time for 5 minutes. That’s it. From here, just wait for the pot to start coming to pressure – the display panel will say it is on. Once it comes to pressure it will start to count down the time from 5 minutes.
- Once the eggs have cooked for 5 minutes, the instant pot will beep. Let the eggs sit in the pot for 5 more minutes after it beeps – you will see the timer counting up now.
- After 5 minutes have passed, open the lid and carefully take the eggs out of the pot and put them in an ice bath. I fill a big mixing bowl with ice and water, and use a large skimmer to scoop them gently into the ice bath. Then, just let them chill in the ice bath for 5 minutes.
- Take the eggs out of the ice bath, and peel! The shells will come off so easily using this instant pot hard boiling method.
- Store the peeled eggs in the refrigerator for up to a week.
I usually make about 6-10 eggs at a time, but you can scale this up or down as needed.
