Instant Pot Southern Green Beans
- Serves: 4
- Prep: 5 minutes
- Cook: 17 minutes
- 1 Qt Fresh or Frozen Green Beans, strung and snapped
- 2 Cups Chicken Broth (homemade, if possible)
- 2 Tbsp Salt
- 3-4 Strips uncooked, chopped Bacon (optional)
Combine Beans, Broth, Bacon (if using) and Salt in Instant Pot and stir.
Set Instant Pot to cook on HIGH for 7 minutes. When finished, let rest for 10 more minutes.
Open, spoon 'em out and dig in!
NOTE: If you don’t have bacon, then any pork cut will do. A ham hock would be perfect.
NOTE: This cooking time yields very soft beans…like mama cooked them. But if you prefer yours like city folk, then reduce the cooking time to 4-5 minutes..
NOTE: Make sure you start with Green Beans that are uncooked/raw. Don’t use a package of pre-cooked or “steamer” beans.
