Instant Pot Hard Boiled Eggs
- Place 2 cups of water in the Instant Pot then place your trivet/steamer basket/egg rack in the pot and put your eggs in it ( I really like the egg rack, it keeps the eggs in place and holds up to 14 eggs). Close the lid and press the “egg” button (if your instant pot has that button) or the “manual” button and change the pressure setting to low and set the time for 7-8 minutes. Close the lid and start your pot. Once the pot is done cooking let it natural release for 5 minutes. Then open the pot and place your eggs in a bowl full of ice water, let them cool and peel immediately.
WHAT IS THE TRICK TO PEEL FRESH HARD BOILED EGGS? An ice water bath! As soon as your hard boiled eggs are done cooking place them in a bowl with a mix of cold water and ice cubes to cool them rapidly. The rapid cooling of the eggs contracts the egg whites, releasing them from the shell making them easier to peel.
