Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs in the Instant Pot (Whole30 Paleo) – learn how to make perfectly peeled boiled eggs in the Instant Pot!

My favorite appliance continues to amaze me!  I’ve forever been on a quest to determine the secret to perfectly peel-able hard boiled eggs.  I’ve tried all the tricks and finally hit the jackpot by simply using my Instant Pot!  For the longest time, I thought it seemed like a silly concept and just continued with the stovetop method.  I tried using super fresh eggs, week-old eggs, vinegar in the water, etc. etc., and very rarely came up with the perfect peel. 

Just 5 minutes under pressure in the pot followed by a quick ice bath, and my eggs peeled beautifully!  For soft boiled eggs that are slightly runny, just reduce the cooking time. 

This is the version of the Instant Pot I currently own and use.  Although I’m pretty happy with it, at some point I may need to upgrade to the larger pot with extra options. 😉
