Pressure Cooker/Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs

I have a stove top recipe I followed until trying it this way.  Never again will I use the stove to make my hard boiled eggs!

Number of eggs you’d like to cook (I cook 10-12 at one time)

1 cup of water (distilled or purified recommended)

Place ingredients into pot, place lid and make sure it is locked and pressure valve is on “pressure”.  Cook on high/manual for 7 minutes.  Once timer goes off, move pressure valve to “pressure release” and allow pressure to release for 5-7 minutes.  This will allow the pressure to come out, but also the rice will finish cooking during that time.

Drain water from pot and give the eggs a cold bath by placing water and ice into a bowl or pot you just poured eggs out of.  Give ice bath for 10 minutes, drain and peel eggs!

I also recorded a video, if you’d like to check out for more explanation.

Please note: These eggs were peeled too soon after draining, hence the chunks of egg off. The ice bath is very important 🙂
