How to make Easy to Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs in your InstantPot!

How to make Easy to Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs in your InstantPot, will show you how to make easy-to-peel eggs in 5 minutes! 

Hard-cooked eggs have always been my nemesis. No matter what method I tried they would either be overcooked or in the case of fresh eggs so difficult to peel I ended up with more egg sticking to the shell than left to the egg! You will find a steamed method that works great, but compared to this one, I must confess my fickle ways and declare that this is my new and forever method!

I tried this the first time when I made our favorite potato salad because I did not like how the eggs turned out in my posted method for Mary's Potato Salad. Needless to say, I will update that one, because this is the way to go! Hard-to-cook eggs are the main reason I avoid making deviled eggs. But that too is about to change. The men folk around here love them and this cooking method is exactly what I need for deviled eggs that are pretty enough to let's get started. 

The eggs used and shown were as fresh as fresh can be. They were laid the day before by our ladies!

Items needed for this process:
  • eggs
  • water as called for in your pressure cooker directions
  • InstantPot or electric pressure cooker
  • cooking rack for the pressure cooker
  • storage bowl 

Easy to Peel Hard-Cooked Eggs in your InstantPot!
inspired by all the great cooks everywhere!

Place the rack in the cooking pot, and add the number of eggs you wish to cook. 

Add the required of water per the instruction booklet that came with your cooker. Secure the lid, and close the valve. 

Set the cooking time for 5 minutes.

Let the cooker sit for 15 minutes NPR. Then carefully release the pressure and remove the lid. 

Let the eggs cool slightly before moving to a storage bowl or peeling to use right away. 

When needed, peel and use as desired! 

I have found the trick to peeling the eggs is to carefully break the membrane between the shell and the cooked egg. Once you crack the shell, grab the membrane and tear it. From there a bit of water helps separate the three layers when you have a really difficult egg to peel.
