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.
Here a couple more of my favorite Instant Pot recipes…
