Tools Needed For Potatoes and Green Beans In Instant Pot

Ingredients Needed

  • Fresh Green Beans
  • Potatoes
  • Bacon
  • Chicken Stock
  • Parsley
  • Salt & Pepper

How To Make

Step 1: Turn your Instant Pot to the saute function. Then add in your diced bacon and saute until it is nice and crispy. Remove the bacon and leave the grease in the pot.

Step 2: Turn the saute feature off, and pour in the chicken stock. Use a wooden spoon to scrape and deglaze the bottom of the pot.

Step 3: Add your potatoes, and green beans along with spices into the Instant Pot. Then toss all the ingredients together.

Step 4: Place the lid on and make sure the valve is set to sealing. Pressure cook high manual pressure for 6 minutes. Followed by a quick release of pressure.

Step 5: Once the potatoes and beans are done, open the lid, toss in the bacon, and toss and serve.


Keep any leftovers you have in the fridge for up to four days. I always tell people to use your best judgment as to if you feel you need to throw them out for going bad.

Each fridge cools differently so if refrigerated properly this recipe will last that long. 

To reheat your potatoes, simply warm up in a pan on the stove. Or toss in the microwave. Either way, works, and boy are they tasty leftover. I almost think the next day flavor is even better than night one!

This ain’t no side dish. It’s the main course. Scratch cornbread on the side. I made this tonight and I will never ever go back to my old way of making bland green beans and potatoes. This was so good. It’s better than any country restaurant version I’ve heard had. Thank you for the recipe.
