How To Cook Beans In The Instant Pot

When cooking beans in the Instant Pot there are a few rules and tips you need to follow. 

  • Don’t overfill the pot. 
  • Make sure you use enough liquid.

Beans expand once they are soaked and cooked. It is super important to make sure you leave plenty of space in your inner pot for soaking and cooking your beans. 

To avoid an overflow and having liquid squirt out of the pot, make sure you only fill your pot at half capacity. 

When cooking your beans make sure you have plenty of water and liquid to cover the beans.
