Steaming green beans or any vegetable is such an easy method of cooking in general, and making these Instant Pot Steamed Green Beans is a huge time savor (they only cook 1 minute!) and preparing them this way preserves the nutrients and color. Done perfectly every time! I’ve become a little obsessed with this amazing kitchen appliance, have you noticed? Well, I’m doing my best to eat healthy and not wait until January 1 to evaluate my food choices, and using the Instant Pot makes quick work of cooking healthy! 🙂
This couldn’t be easier, just add 1 cup of water and the trivet to the pot.
Add the steamer basket…
Place the washed green beans in the basket and set cooker to Manual high for 1 minute. Use the ‘quick release’ method to release the steam before the lid is removed. See tips page for release methods.
Season if desired, but, the natural, delicious flavor of the green beans is really enhanced preparing them this way!
