  • Sort beans, removing all broken beans.
  • Wash and rinse several times, removing all the dirt.
  • Place in the Instant Pot.
  • Add the water, salt, and oil.
  • Seal the Instant Pot lid and set the steam valve to "Sealing."
  • Set to high pressure for 35 minutes.
  • When the cycle ends, allow for the full natural release. 
  • Move the switch valve to “Venting.” Allow all the steam to release before opening.
  • Carefully open the lid.
  • Enjoy!
  • Note: If the beans are not fully cooked, return to the Instant Pot and set on high pressure for 5 minutes.


Remove any broken pieces. Any partial pieces. Missing the skin. All go into the trash.
 You must wash, rinse, repeat. Again, don’t skip this step, or your beans will taste like dirt.
If you decide to not soak the beans, know that they will be smaller.
