Instant Pot Hard-Boiled Eggs

Don’t you hate trying to peel hard-boiled eggs and the shells won’t come off without tearing up the egg inside?

Well, you won’t have that problem anymore with this Instant Pot Hard-boiled Egg recipe!

KEY TO SUCCESS #1 – THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT
For the recipe, you’ll need an Instant Pot and an egg rack or the wire rack that came with your Instant Pot.

I have a 6-quart Instant Pot Duo and it’s the perfect size for my family of four. I hard-boiled 14 eggs in this size Instant Pot.

I also purchased a stackable egg steamer rack that holds 14 eggs.

The one I have is made of wire but there are many varieties out there that are made of silicone or other materials.

You can also find combo Instant Pot accessory sets that contain steamer baskets, cake pans, trivets, egg bite molds, and more.

I think these sets are great if you’re at all interested in experimenting with your Instant Pot.

Just watch the size to make sure it will fit your Instant Pot model.

KEY TO SUCCESS #2 – THE 5-5 METHOD
The 5-5 cooking method is pressure cooking for 5 minutes then letting the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes.

When pressure cooking in the Instant Pot, make sure you have enough liquid in the inner pot so that the pressure can build up.

For this recipe, a cup of water is more than enough.

The Instant Pot can build up pressure but your eggs are not sitting in water.

To allow the pressure to build up inside the Instant Pot, make sure the pressure release handle is set to Sealing.

The 5-minute cook time is started once the Instant Pot reaches full pressure so your actual cooking time will be longer than 5 minutes.

It takes between 5 and 10 minutes for the Instant Pot to reach full pressure with this amount of food in it.

The Instant Pot will alert you when the 5-minute cook time has been completed.

At that point, you’ll want to allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes.

During these 5 minutes, your eggs will still be cooking so it’s a good idea to set a timer to make sure your eggs don’t over-cook.

After the pressure has released for 5 minutes, carefully turn the pressure release knob to Venting and allow the rest of the pressure to release.

KEY TO SUCCESS #3 – GIVE EGGS AN ICE BATH
After the pressure has been released from the Instant Pot, the eggs need to stop cooking immediately.

The best way to do that is to slip them into an ice bath. To make an ice bath, simply place several ice cubes into a pan of cold water.

Use a pot holder or a towel to remove the steaming hot eggs from the Instant Pot and slide them gently into the ice bath.

This will stop the cooking process very quickly.

After the eggs have cooled down, peel them under running water then refrigerate immediately.

BONUS TIP! HOW TO CENTER THE YOLK IN HARD-BOILED EGGS
Don’t you hate it when you make Hard-Boiled Eggs and the yolk sinks down to the bottom and creates a thin spot that is likely to break?

I have a super simple tip for ensuring that the yolk is centered every time.

All you have to do is turn the eggs upside down in the carton at least 30 minutes before cooking.

This will center the yolk in your Hard-Boiled Eggs.
