Default Instant Pot - dry beans

I've only tried dry beans in the IP a couple of times and wasn't thrilled with the results. If you are having success with this, what is your method? We usually eat pinto beans. TIA

This. Iíve never cooked them straight from dry. I always forget to soak, but I also always do a four minute soak cycle. You have to wait for it to come to pressure then wait for it to come back down before you open it. I pour the soaking water off. Then add more to cook according to the time recommended in the manual. Itís still a timesaver for me considering how quickly they cook after and the fact that I didnít do a overnight soak.

It's been a while, but I don't think I did? I'm sure the instructions came off of pinterest, because that tends to be where I start with IP stuff. The texture just wasn't what we are used to. (canned)

I've done a couple of beans+rice recipes with dry beans that were fine, but of course that doesn't help with needing just beans.

Default Re: Instant Pot - dry beans

You also have to add lots of salt when you cook them.

If you donít like them, try blending them for a more refried bean type product.

Soaking really gives the best results. Rinse after soaking.

Default Re: Instant Pot - dry beans

I do dry weekly. I sort, dump in with a lot of water, add in all seasonings and salt, and do it for an hour. The 30 minutes guideline was nonsense for us, given the salt.

Yes, this is how I do them too. Pinto beans and black beans take 1 hour and usually I do the slow release. I like my beans softer.

In my Instant Pot, pinto beans would be still rock hard after only 20 minutes.

With 20 min at prusher? I normally do natural release because I am not at home.when it finishes. So 20 min at prusher but probably about an hour in the pot total.

Maybe not rock hard, but I do 60 minutes in the Instant Pot and then let natural release. I was doing 45 minutes, but sometimes a few of the beans would still be firm. I like them soft and easy to mash.

Maybe it's different pots? Do different brands have different pressures? I don't know much about pressure cooking. I've only done it since getting the IP awhile ago.

Default Re: Instant Pot - dry beans

I do them from dry in my IP regularly. I did significantly up the time suggested, though.

I do a QR, no salt or seasonings & give them good rinse before adding to my recipe.

I rinse my beans, but I do add salt and seasonings. Maybe that makes them take longer too? I think adding the seasonings during cooking gives the a great flavor.

Adding salt when they cook will make the beans take much longer to get soft. I will salt after they are cooked.

Default Re: Instant Pot - dry beans

You can soak them in brine, though before cooking. It doesn't toughen the skins the same way and you get better flavor. Cook's Illustrated recommends a brine soak then cooking beans on the stovetop. I bet it would work similarly with a quick soak in the IP.

I soak dry beans overnight (for 8-24 hours), then store them in the freezer and throw the frozen beans in the IP (or slow cooker) when I need them. It requires much less planning. (And lower cooking times.)
