How Steam Broccoli in the Instant Pot.

Want to achieve perfectly steamed broccoli in your Instant Pot? Here’s how! While your IP reaches pressure, the broccoli has already started to steam – and by the time the Instant Pot reaches full pressure, your veggie side dish will be cooked to perfection.

Cooking broccoli in the Instant Pot is a breeze – and done in just three easy steps!

  • Start by trimming off any thick stems and discolored pieces.
  • Then fill the pot with water, insert the trivet or steamer basket, and place the broccoli inside.
  • Lastly, make sure the vent is sealed and the pressure cooker is set to Manual, High, 0 minutes.

Now you can enjoy perfectly cooked broccoli in no time!

Recipe Tips

  • Use an Instant Pot Steamer Basket Insert. If you do not have the steamer basket you can use the metal trivet that came with your instant pot.
  • As soon as your Instant Pot comes to pressure and beeps immediately release the valve to vent.
