Shirley's Instant Pot Soft Boiled Eggs
Very simple and quick way to make soft boiled eggs in the Instant Pot. Have everything ready to go before you start the Instant Pot, as it really won't take long. :-)

Please note: Your times and results might vary compared to mine. We like soft boiled eggs with the whites completely done and the yolks runny inside. If you prefer yours a little different, adjust the times accordingly.
  • Fresh eggs from fridge (1 or more per person up to as many that will fit on your trivet or steamer basket)
  • 1 cup water
  • Ice bath:
  • Ice and bowl for ice bath
  • For serving:
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • Optional -- a little butter :-)
  1. Pour 1 cup water into pot and add trivet.
  2. Place 1-2 eggs or more on trivet.
  3. Close lid.
  4. Manual (high pressure) for 2 minutes.
  5. QR
  6. Ice bath for 1 minute. Remove, peel, and enjoy. For serving, add salt and pepper, a little butter perhaps ...
  • Set up the ice bath, ingredients, your dishes/plates/whatever and have everything ready to go. This is a quick recipe. :-) 
  • I've found that if I crack the shell a bit and then insert a teaspoon between the shell and the egg white, the shell comes right off quickly and easily, almost in one piece. Slick.
