  • Pressure Cooker (I use an Instant Pot)


  • Eggs


  • Place 1 cup of cold water in the inner pot of the Instant
  • Add in egg steam rack or trivet and carefully set as many eggs as desired on or in the rack.
  • Place the lid on the pressure cooker and set the cooking time for 5 minutes on high pressure.
  • Once cook time has elapsed, let the pressure naturally release for 5 minutes. Then do a quick release and carefully remove eggs from the Instant Pot and place them in an ice water bath.
  • Let eggs sit in cold water bath for 5 minutes.
  • Remove eggs from the water bath.
