How To Cook Beans In The Pressure Cooker WITHOUT Soaking Them!

It is amazing how often I am planning on making burritos, tacos, or huevos rancheros from scratch and I have forgotten to SOAK the beans!!!  Enter my pressure cooker!   Many a dinner has been saved by this handy time-saving contraption and I am so happy that six years ago, I took the plunge, pushed my fears of flying lids aside, and bought my first pressure cooker (actually my mom bought it for me, thanks, mom!).

So today I want to share with you a super simple recipe for cooking black beans in the pressure cooker WITHOUT soaking them!  Yes, I know, it is good to soak the beans and stuff, but seriously, I never remember....

Here is a video for your amusement that walks you through the process and a recipe card that you can print out for your stash of recipes.

How To Cook Black Beans In The Pressure Cooker WITHOUT Soaking Them!

How To Cook Black Beans In The Pressure Cooker WITHOUT Soaking Them!

Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. Organic Dry Black Beans (Unsoaked)
  • 4-6 quarts water, or enough to equal 2-3 times more water than beans
  • 1 T Organic Garlic powder
  • 1 T Organic Oregano leaf
  • 2-3 T Organic Canola or Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste, after cooking.

Instructions

  1. Add the dry beans to your pressure cooker.
  2. Fill pressure cooker with filtered water, so that the water is 2-3 times more than the beans.
  3. Add spices and oil to water. Do NOT add salt! Salt will make your beans tough. Add salt after to taste.
  4. Oil the gasket for your pressure cookers lid.
  5. Put lid on and lock it.
  6. Set the pressure cooker to 15 lbs. of pressure (on my pressure cooker, The 10-Quart Duo, by Fagor, this is setting #2)
  7. Turn heat on high and bring up to pressure.
  8. When the indicator on your pressure cooker says you are up to pressure, turn down the heat to low, and start timing.
  9. Cook at high pressure approximately 30 minutes.
  10. When time is up, turn off heat and let the pressure come down naturally (natural pressure release).
  11. When the indicator on your pressure cooker says the pressure has come down, unlock the lid, and tilting away from you, slowly remove the lid (the steam will be HOT!)
  12. The black beans are done if there are no beans floating.
  13. If for some reason they are not done, repeat the process and cook at high pressure for a few more minutes, until done.
  14. Add salt and pepper to taste and ENJOY!
