Instant pot red potatoes recipe

We love potatoes and they really make the perfect side dish. Not only are they easy but they are frugal.

I grew up on butter potatoes. Did you? They are so delicous.

It is such an easy recipe that you practically don’t need to call it a recipe. But as I was talking to others, I realized not other families grew up on this easy side dish so I had to share.

Normally you boil the potatoes until tender and then add butter and salt and pepper. Then you let the butter melt all over your potatoes leaving you with a delicious side dish.

However, thanks to the trusty Instant pot (or any electric pressure cooker for that matter) this family favorite side dish just got even easier because the cooking time just got cut in half!

How do you steam red potatoes in the instant pot?

Cut your potatoes into quarters, leaving the skin on. You can peel them first, but the skin will fall right off if you have picky eaters.

Place in your Instant pot or any electric pressure cooker.

Pour your water over the top. Season with salt and pepper and then add your butter to the top (not melted).

However, there are other great electric pressure cookers that will work great for this recipe too. You can find them all on sale here.

It is perfect for frozen food or meals that normally take a while. You can toss everything in and have dinner ready in no time at all.

Those days when you forget to take something out of the freezer or wait until the last minute for dinner, the instant pot is your saving grace.

I am not exaggerating when I say it truly has changed meal time around here. We love ours and it makes soup recipes even easier.

  1. If I wanted to cut this in half, do I also cut the amount of water in half? I know the IP requires a certain amount of water

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe turned out perfect. Offered as a side. Everyone had seconds. Thanks for the recipe.

  3. I originally purchased a Power Pressure Cooker (6 quart) and it worked with no problems for over 8 years. Since that time I have purchased two different Instant Pots and both of them died in less than 1 1/2 years. I am at a loss on what to buy next since the reviews of Instant Pots on Amazon are not particularly promising, Help!
