  • Use the pressure cook setting on your Instant Pot and make sure the valve is in the sealing position.
  • Cook for 5 minutes and quick release once the timer is done. Keep in mind that it will take much longer than 5 minutes, because the instant pot needs to warm up first.
  •  Once you can open your lid, serve warm. Serve immediately.
