These Pressure Cooker Instant Pot Green Beans taste like they have been simmering for hours, but yet they only take four minutes to cook.

Fresh green beans are plentiful during the summer.  Since I am a Southern cook, I love Southern Green Beans, but they take at least an hour to prepare and simmer until incredibly flavorful.  I believe these pressure cooker green beans are even more delicious and so fast to cook.

These Pressure Cooker Instant Pot Green Beans taste like they have been simmering for hours, but yet they only take four minutes to cook.

First Step:

Snap the ends off the beans and cut or snap them into 2-3 inch pieces.  Rinse the green beans.

Second Step:

Cut eight slices of raw bacon into 2-inch pieces.

Tip:

Use your kitchen sheers, which work great.  As you cut the bacon, you can drop it right into the pressure cooker.

Third Step:

With the pressure cooker set to browning mode, fry the bacon until hard.  Leave it in the pressure cooker.

Fourth Step:

Next, add the minced garlic and chopped onions in the pressure cooker.  I use my mini food processor to chop my onion.  Saute the garlic and chopped onions until the onions in the pressure cooker with the bacon until they are tender.

Fifth Step:

Add the chicken broth, seasoned salt, pepper, Cajun seasoning, and sugar.

Six-Step: Pressure Cooker Green Beans

Cook on high pressure for 4 minutes.  If you like your green beans soft, cook 5 minutes.  You can do a manual release or let the pressure release on its own. It’s up to you.

Tip:

When doing a manual release, place a towel over the release button.  The hot steam and splatters will go into the cloth.

After fresh green beans are cooked you normally get two cups per pound. If a person eats 4 ounces, it should feed 4 people. Therefore, my recipe calls for three pounds of fresh green beans which should feed 12 people.
