Many people recommend different ways of cooking the perfect hard boil egg. Some suggest removing the saucepan with the eggs from the heat once the water starts boiling and to let them sit for about 15 minutes. I even found one recipe where the author was recommending to bake the eggs in the oven for 30 minutes. That’s a lot of time for me. You can cook a whole meal for that amount of time.a pressure cooker is the best way to make hard-cooked eggs. It doesn’t really save time (the pressure cooker’s usual claim to fame), but here’s why it’s great: it actually makes fresh eggs easy to peel!”
Pressure Cooker Hard Boiled Eggs
- Fill pressure cooker with the minimum amount of water specified by the manufacturer. Place eggs in the steamer basket above the water. Seal the lid and bring the pressure cooker up to low pressure.
- Cook, maintaining low pressure, for 6 minutes. Remove the pressure cooker from heat and allow the pressure to drop for 5 minutes.
- Combine cold water and ice in a large bowl.
- Use the quick-release method to open the pressure cooker. Transfer the hot eggs to the ice water using an oven mitt or spoon. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
