Step 1

Saute Onion in Instant Pot: Heat up Instant Pot using "Sauté More" function. Wait until it says "HOT" (~8 mins). Add 1 tbsp (15ml) olive oil in Instant Pot. Add in chopped onions, then saute for 3 minutes.

Step 2

Add Spice & Garlic: Add in 1 tsp (2.7g) ground cumin, 1 tsp (0.6g) oregano, and 3 bay leaves. Saute for another minute. Add in minced garlic, then saute for 30 seconds.

Step 3

Deglaze Instant Pot: Pour 1 cup (250ml) unsalted stock in Instant Pot, then deglaze by scrubbing all the flavorful brown bits off the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon. Give it a quick mix.

Step 4

Pressure Cook Black Beans: Add in 1 lb (454g) black beans and ½ tsp coarse kosher salt. Pour in 5 cups (1.25L) unsalted chicken stock, then give it a quick mix. With Venting Knob in Venting Position, close the lid, then turn Venting Knob to Sealing Position. Pressure Cook at High Pressure 50 minutes + Natural Release 20 minutes. After 20 minutes, release the remaining pressure by turning Venting Knob to Venting Position. When Floating Valve drops, open the lid carefully.*Pro Tip: Adding salt to the black beans will not make it tough.

Step 5

Season Black Beans: Taste and season black beans with more salt (for reference, 3 - 4 large pinches of salt worked best based on our testings).

Step 6

Serve Instant Pot Black Beans: You can serve the black beans as a yummy side dish, topping, filling, or a simple Black Beans Soup. *Pro Tip: If serving as a Black Beans Soup, boil the black beans in Instant Pot (use "Saute High" function for another 4 - 5 minutes. This will add some more body to the soup. Stir occasionally. Garnish your black beans with chopped cilantro, then serve. Enjoy!~ :)
