Instant Pot New Orleans-Style Red Beans and Rice

Instant Pot New Orleans Style Red Beans

The Instant Pot is a bean’s best friend! Cook your red beans super fast with no hands-on attention required (after a quick sauté) and no soaking.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound smoked sausage, sliced
  • 1/4 stick of butter
  • 2 cups chopped seasoning blend (onions, celery, green bell peppers, parsley flakes)
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 (1-pound) package Camellia Brand Red Kidney Beans*
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • Cajun seasoning to taste
  • Hot cooked rice


Instructions

  1. Rinse and sort beans.
  2. Press the Sauté button on the Instant Pot, and add oil to pot. Add sliced sausage, and sauté for about 5 minutes or until browned. Remove sausage to a paper towel-lined plate and reserve.
  3. Add 1/4 stick butter to Instant Pot, along with chopped seasoning blend and garlic, and cook until onions turn soft and clear.
  4. Add cooked sausage back to pot, along with the beans, water, and bay leaf. Stir.
  5. Turn Sauté mode off. Cover, twist to lock the lid, and turn the valve to sealing. Press the Manual button and set to 40 minutes at high pressure.
  6. When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 20 minutes. Then, turn the valve to venting.
  7. Remove lid, and use a spoon or potato masher to mash beans to desired creamy consistency. Add salt, pepper, and Cajun seasoning to taste.
  8. Serve over hot cooked rice.

Prep time: 10 min | Cook time: 50 min | Yield: 6-8 servings

* If you have soaked your beans, reduce the amount of water to 4 cups.
