First off, allow me to start off with a Confession I probably should not start this blog with…
I do not like soft boiled eggs. 😝
I LOVE Medium Boiled Eggs, and Hard Boiled Eggs.
Soft Boiled Eggs… too soft for me! However, to each his own!
Nonetheless! I found the perfect technique to make Soft Boiled Eggs in my Instant Pot Pressure Cooker, and I thought it only right to share with those who DO like Soft Boiled Eggs.
The sacrificial soft boiled egg…
Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs
Instant Pot Silicone Mitts
Note: you can cook more eggs and cook time will not change
Close lid, and turn Vent knob to “Sealing”
Press “Manual” button and adjust cook time to 3 minutes.
If you aren’t an Instant Pot user, Manual is simply high pressure
The Instant Pot or other pressure cooker will take 5-10 minutes to come to pressure. Once it does, cook time countdown will begin.
When cook time is complete, Instant Pot will beep. Press “Keep Warm/Off” button to turn OFF, and immediately quickly release pressure (QPR) by turning vent knob to “Venting” (I always place a hand towel over the vent knob before releasing pressure).
CAREFULLY but immediately remove eggs from Instant Pot - yesssss…they will be HOT (I use tongs or my Instant Pot Silicone Mitts!).
Immediately place eggs in ice bath, and allow to cool for about 3 minutes.
If you don’t let them cool, they will not be as easy to peel!
Get ready for tears… because they will peel easier than ANY eggs you have EVER made!
Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs!
