Place the eggs in the instant pot on top of potatoes and close the lid. Make sure the pressure value is set to close.

Set the instant pot to pressure cook for zero minutes on high pressure. The potatoes and eggs will cook while the pressure is building and don’t need extra cooking time once the pot has come to pressure.

Chop the onion to the desired size. 

Once the instant pot is done cooking, safely release the pressure by opening the pressure value using a towel or hot pad.
