Easy Boiled Eggs (Pressure Cooker)

The “official” method for boiling eggs is not as simplistic as I want it to be. When using my pressure cooker, I want a 1-step process. Technically for boiled eggs one should do 3 minutes at high pressure followed by 15 minutes of natural release, followed by a manual release at that point.

Here is a 1-step process for those who want it simplified, like me.

Place raw eggs in a pressure cooker (however many you want), on top of any metal rack to keep them off the bottom. Put enough water in to cover the bottom of the pot (1/4 – 1 c, I don’t measure).

Turn on the cooker to 6 minutes at high pressure. When it beeps they are done! No need to set additional timers or worry about watching the clock.

If you should forget about it and the machine naturally depressurizes, that’s ok. The eggs won’t be “burned” in the 15 minutes it takes for a natural release.

This method works great for a variety of egg sizes, including medium chicken eggs, large chicken eggs, and extra large duck eggs. All get cooked well (without some left gooey in the middle while others burn).

If using FRESH eggs from your (or someone’s) farm, put the cooked eggs immediately into cold water. This will help the inside of the egg contract and the shells will be easier to peel.
