Who out there loves green beans?
Like most Southerners I used to cook mine to death. I still like them that way, but there are times I also like them crunchy! These are about middle of the road. They still have a little crunch, but they are soft enough too. If you like them really crunchy, I would start with just 2 minutes in the IP and see what you think.
Don’t have an IP – No worries! Check Recipe for stove top cooking instructions below!
I am still fairly new to the whole Instant Pot craze… BUT, I am CRAZY for mine.

Now lets get on to cooking this side “that goes with anything”. If you are like me this one happens a lot in my kitchen! It will be done in less time than it takes to say that 😉
How to make Instant Pot Green Beans (Pressure Cooker Green Beans)
Step 1. Snap the ends off your fresh green beans and wash them off. Or Vice Versa! Whatever way floats your boat friends!
Step 2. Pour water into Instant Pot along with green beans. Next add in the butter and garlic.
Step 3. Set for manual low pressure for 5 minutes. Then quick release steam immediately (turn pressure valve to open). Stir them up and they are ready to serve!
HOW LONG DO YOU COOK GREEN BEANS in INSTANT POT?
- Firm Crunchy Texture – Low Pressure 0 Minutes (Beans will steam while coming up to pressure)
- For a little Softer Bean but still Firm – Low Pressure 2 minutes
- For Soft Bean but not mushy – Low Pressure 5 Minutes
TIP: You can also use a steamer insert. Place water into instant pot and then beans into steamer basket.
