How to Make Instant Pot Baked Beans

These baked beans are very easy to make. Start by browning the ground beef and bacon in the instant pot. The next step is the most important step. You need to deglaze the Instant Pot insert. That is just a fancy term for adding some liquid to the hot insert and scraping up all the cooked bits from the bottom. This step will help you avoid getting the BURN notice.

After you have browned the meat and deglazed the insert, simply add the remaining ingredients and cook. I used canned baked beans, and these beans only needed an 8 minute cooking time. That doesn’t include the time it takes for the pot to come to pressure. After the beans have cooked, do a quick release and serve.

  1. Hi Stephanie, These baked beans look delicious. But I do have a question; Is there any way I could do them in a crock pot or even the stove? Don’t have an Instant Pot. Thanks for any help you can give me. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
    P.S. Can any of your recipes that are done in the Instant Pot, be done in crock pot or on the stove?
