Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs – Electric Pressure Cooker

24 04 2016

Hard-Boiled-EggsOne thing I haven’t typically done on this blog is to post really basic things but today I can’t help myself. There are a thousand “tips” out there for making perfect hard boiled eggs. Some kinda work, others don’t. Some say don’t use farm fresh eggs, others say you can. Here’s the one thing I know now, the pressure cooker makes PERFECT hard boiled eggs, easiest to peel that I’ve ever made and in no time at all.

I’m going to be posting several recipes in the coming weeks using the new electric pressure cooker toy but for now, here’s a perfect egg for your enjoyment.

  1. Pour 1 cup of water into pressure cooker (or minimum water required for your pressure cooker).
  2. Place steamer or grate that came with your pressure cooker and then eggs in your pressure cooker. Close and lock pressure cooker.
  3. Set to LOW pressure and set cooking time for 6 minutes.
  4. When 6 min is up, let the pressure naturally release until the pressure drops, indicating that all pressure has been released and it is safe to unlock the pressure cooker.
  5. Using tongs, remove eggs and soak in an ice bath to cool.

These will peel so easily you won’t hardly believe it.

Enjoy!

Interesting! I know icing the eggs after cooking keeps that purple dark yolk exterior from forming. But the peeling part is great! How long does it take to release all pressure from cooker?

It varies a bit based on whether it was low or high pressure. On low, it took about 10 minutes.
