Instant Pot Garlic Butter Green Beans

5 from 1 reviews


  • 1 pound green beans, tops and bottoms sliced off
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1/2 cup broth (chicken or veggie both work!)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (or ghee if paleo/whole 30)
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Add your green beans to your Instant Pot along with your broth and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper and stir to combine
  2. Add your two pats of butter (one tablespoon each) on top of the green beans
  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal the vent, and cook on manual low pressure for 5 minutes. Immediately quick release the pressure – don’t let it naturally release or the green beans get too soft
  4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and serve!


This doesn’t make a huge amount – about 2 cups when the green beans are cooked. But this recipe can super easily be doubled or tripled! Just double/triple the ingredient amounts but leave the cook time the same.
