Updated: Jun 22, 2018

Simple no soak Instant Pot® Baked Beans with the perfect balance of rich, sweet, and savory. Baked beans are the perfect addition to a BBQ, veggie loaf, veggie hot dogs, or baked potatoes.

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 75 minutes

Serves: 6-8


1 lb. dried navy beans

3 cups water

2 onions, diced

2 celery stalks, diced

2 carrots, diced

6 arlic cloves, roughly chopped

1/2 cup chopped pitted dates

1/4 cup molasses

3 tablespoons tomato paste

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons liquid smoke

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 bay leaves

Sea Salt to taste (at the end of cooking)


  1. Rinse and sort beans, removing any debris. Add all of the ingredients (except salt) to the pressure cooker.

  2. Lock the lid into place and close the pressure valve. Cook at high pressure for 75 minutes. Once the cook time is complete, allow the pressure to naturally release for 8-10 minutes. Release the remaining pressure and remove the lid. Baked beans are very tender and it will require a longer pressure cooking time to get that perfect consistency of soft baked beans.

  3. When the beans are finished cooking, salt to taste.
