Step 1

Rinse beans and pick out any stones, pebbles, or non-bean materials.

Step 2

Put beans into Instant Pot. Add water, onion, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Stir. Secure lid, turn valve to seal.

Step 3

Set pressure cooker to "pressure cook" or "manual" (depending on model), high pressure, for 50 minutes. Let pressure release naturally (in other words, leave it alone) for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Quick release any remaining pressure by turning valve to “vent.” Remove lid.

Step 5

Carefully remove bay leaf. Beans can be drained, or you can scoop beans out with a slotted spoon, or enjoy them with the cooking broth. It's delicious!

Step 6

Serve, garnished with chopped cilantro, if desired.
