  • 1 lb green beans trimmed
  • 1 lb red potatoes cut into 4ths
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 Tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoon lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Add ingredients to Instant Pot. Cover and cook on high pressure for 9 minutes. Once cook time is up, allow to natural release for 5 minutes, then quickly release any remaining pressure. Serve and enjoy :)



  • It will take about 10 minutes for your Instant Pot to rise to pressure
  • This recipe was prepared in a 6qt Instant Pot. Any 6q pressure cooker will work with this recipe. Keep the cook times the same. 
  • Cut the potatoes into similar sized pieces so that they cook evenly.
  • These green beans are soft green beans, like Southern Style green beans without the bacon. Also, feel free to add bacon if you’d like :)
  • Make it vegetarian by using vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
