Instant Pot Steamed Eggs
- Pour 1 cup water into the Instant Pot and position steam rack (included). You can use a metal steam basket on top of rack if you'd like.
- Place 5-7 eggs on steam rack. (you can use canning lids or metal mini cookie cutters if needed to separate/hold the eggs) mine rested well without.
- Close lid and steam valve. Press Steam setting, and adjust time down to 4 minutes (soft boiled) using +/- buttons or 5 minutes (hard boiled).
- At the end of steam cycle, place a cool cloth on the lid and quick release the steam valve. Use tongs to transfer eggs to a cold water bath for 1-2 minutes.
- Peel and enjoy!
