INSTANT POT GREEN BEANS AND HAM

Loading...

A delicious low carb side dish that’s ready in minutes, these Instant Pot Green Beans and Ham are quick to make and super tender like Southern style green beans.



The Instant Pot or any pressure cooker excels at making dishes that should be soft and tender — think soups and stews — but nothing crispy. That’s why it’s ideal for making tender Southern style green beans that would otherwise take much longer using traditional methods.

It only takes 4 minutes to cook fresh green beans in a pressure cooker. For frozen green beans, it’ll take about 5 minutes.



These green beans are cooked with ham, but you can substitute with diced bacon. I prefer bacon to be crispy so I consider it a shame to pressure cook bacon, but you can use it if you don’t like ham.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound fresh green beans trimmed and cut in half
  • 8 ounces sliced ham diced
  • 1 cup diced red onions (about half an onion)
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

Instructions

Recommended Method Using Steamer Basket:

  1. Pour about 1/4 cup water into the pressure cooker pot. Fit a steamer basket inside.
  2. Add all ingredients to the steamer basket. Stir to mix them.
  3. Secure and seal the lid. Cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. As soon as it’s done, manually release pressure by carefully turning the release knob to its venting position.
  4. Uncover and stir. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve while hot.

Alternate Method Without Steamer Basket:

  1. Select the sauté mode on the pressure cooker for medium heat. When it has reached temperature, add garlic, onions, and 2 tablespoons butter. Cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently.
  2. Add ham and cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently. Turn off the sauté mode. Scrape up any brown bits stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  3. Add green beans, 1/4 cup water, salt, and pepper. Stir together.
  4. Cook at high pressure for 4 minutes. As soon as it’s done, manually release pressure by carefully turning the release knob to its venting position.
  5. Uncover and stir. Thoroughly strain to remove the liquid. Add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve while hot.
