How to Make Instant Pot Brussels Sprouts
In this post, I will give you 3 ways to make brussels sprouts in the IP. It depends on how “roasted” you want your brussels sprouts to look. If you want that lovely roasted and crispy look, then you’ll need to saute the brussels sprouts first until golden, and then cook them in the IP on high pressure in a vegetable stock.
Alternatively, you can simply cook them in the IP in tasty vegetable stock, with garlic, salt, and pepper until soft and tender.
First, cut the ends of the stems off. Then, decide whether you would like to leave them as whole or cut them in halves. I only cut in half when they’re too big. If you decide to cut them in half, then reduce the cooking time by 2 minutes.
Then, depending on how “roasted” you want your brussels sprouts to look. You can either saute them in the IP with olive oil and garlic until they’re golden, then add vegetable stock and cook on high pressure for 2 minutes until soft and tender. Then do a quick release and serve.
The easier way is just to dump everything in the Instant Pot and then cook on manual – high pressure for 3 minutes then do a quick release and serve.
Crispy Brussels Sprouts With Bacon
Sometimes I like to jazz things up a little and add crispy bacon to my brussels sprouts. The best way to do this is to steam the brussels sprouts using a steamer basket and ½ cup of water, steam on high pressure for 1 minute.
After they’re steamed, get rid of the liquid and saute a diced shallot with bacon in butter, then add the brussels sprouts and cook for a few minutes.
