Instant Pot Country Green Beans

Mmmm. Country green beans. I remember snapping green beans with my grandma on the back porch. The fresh “snap” when breaking off the tips was a common sound in my childhood. We always worked with two bowls and a bag. The beans came out of the bag, we snapped them and then the ends went in one bowl and the beans went in the other. Whenever grandma had the bowls out, I knew we were getting green beans with dinner.

I am a late joiner to the instant pot scene. I had one, but hardly ever used it. That was until I bought a Ninja Foodie Combo… air fryer, slow cooker, and air fryer all in one. It literally does everything but wash itself! (Wouldn’t THAT be nice?!) I have been using my Foodie at least once a week… but always for main dishes. I thought I would branch out and try to make some other dishes. Digging through my recipe box, I came across the recipe for country green beans and thought I’d do some experimenting.

This recipe for country green beans tastes just like grandma used to make. Well, I guess it should. It IS her recipe but adapted for the Instant Pot. No more waiting for an hour for a delicious bowl of green beans! So, get snapping and let’s get cooking!
