How to Make Boiled Peanuts in the Instant Pot

With this recipe for Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts, you can have the delicious Southern staple ready to eat in a fraction of the time normally required!

He was known to everyone in our community as “The Peanut Man.”  I was just a kid and had no clue what his real name was, but I knew his little portable roadside stand near the railroad tracks meant something good

It meant having a styrofoam cup full of steaming hot boiled peanuts to devour while sitting on the front porch on a sticky summer evening.  It meant letting the salty brine drip down your wrists in rivets.  Most of all, it meant enjoying the simple things in life.

Instant Pot Boiled Peanuts


1 lb raw peanuts in the shell (not roasted)
1/3 cup coarse sea salt (if you like your peanuts saltier, you can increase to 1/2 cup)


Sort through the peanuts, removing any debris. Rinse peanuts well and place into the Instant Pot.
Add salt to the insert pot.
Add enough water to cover the peanuts and stir. Keep in mind that they will float, so you will need to place a weight on top of them to keep them submerged. I simply place the trivet that came with the Instant Pot on top of the peanuts, then place a small Pyrex bowl (if you don't have Pyrex, any heatproof bowl/mug should work) on top of the trivet to keep it weighted down. Be sure to not overfill the Instant Pot--refer to your particular model's guidelines on maximum fill.
Lock the lid in place and close the vent. Using the manual setting, cook on high pressure for 80 minutes.
When cooking is complete, turn the pressure cooker off of the Keep Warm setting and allow the pressure to completely release naturally.
