Ingredients Needed for Instant Pot Ham and Beans

  • 32 oz dried Northern or Pinto beans, rinsed and sorted
  • 2 cups leftover ham and meaty ham bone or 3 ham hocks
  • 4 tablespoons dried minced onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • water

Instant Pot Ham and Beans Notes

  • If all your beans are not as tender as you like when the cooking time is over and your liquid is all soaked up or you would just like to have more liquid in with your beans, add in more liquid and stir, seal and cook under high pressure for an additional 8 minutes. Natural release for 5 minutes and then quick release.
  • This recipe makes a ton, but the leftovers are so good, you’ll want a ton! However, if you want less, you can cut the recipe in half and lessen your cooking time.
  • I used a6 quart Instant Potto make this recipe. Using an electric pressure cooker is a great convenience in the kitchen, but ALWAYS follow your manufacturer’s recommendations for safety.
  • If using a smaller pot, you may need to reduce the recipe to avoid overflow. If using a larger pot, you may need to add additional liquid.
  • Also, DO NOT EVER cover the vent of your electric pressure cooker.

  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
  • Finally, all electric pressure cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes shouldalways be tested first in your own electric pressure cooker and time adjusted as needed.

      You will want to rinse and sort the beans, but they do not need pre-soaked. Enjoy!
