The most amazing no soak Instant Pot baked beans you’ll ever eat! Perfectly cooked in your pressure cooker they’re a great side dish for any barbecue.
Every time I use this fancy pressure cooker I am amazed at how quickly it cooks just about everything! Yes you can buy canned baked beans, and they’re pretty good, but these are the most amazing no soak Instant Pot baked beans you will ever make!! They aren’t hard to put together either and without the need to soak your beans overnight it just takes about an hour and a half start to finish to create these sweet and tangy pinto beans that are a must at every barbecue if you ask me! Heck, we love them with burgers during the week when we don’t have people over and just want a delicious side dish. It’s one of our favorite side dish Instant Pot recipes I tell you. You’ve got to try them. If you’re looking to wow guests without slaving over the stove This. Is. IT. I tell you……. (affiliate link present)
You can adjust the spice level but I keep ours on the milder side. I do add a bit of chili powder just because it adds a great flavor to the homemade baked bean sauce I use to make these but you could definitely kick it up another notch and almost double the amount of that to give it a spicier flavor. Either way the beans turn out tender, the sauce is thick, sweet, and with chunks of bacon inside they are just….oh my goodness good! If you don’t have an Instant Pot I HIGHLY recommend one. I was hesitant at first and stuck with my crockpot but once I got the hang of it I couldn’t stop creating new, quick, and delicious meals that were done in usually under 30 minutes! A pressure cooker will work for this recipe as well if you are attached to yours, but from mom to mom this 7 in 1 device has made making dinners SO much easier.

No Soak Instant Pot Baked Beans

Rinse your beans, put inside your Instant Pot or pressure cooker with 6 cups of water and 1 tsp. salt.
Put lid on, close steam valve and set Instant Pot to the bean setting, normal, for 60 minutes.

Pour a few tbsp. olive oil into Instant pot and add your bacon and onion.
Cook until onions have softened.
Add your beans back into your Instant Pot or pressure cooker.
Whisk sauce again (sugar will settle to the bottom), and pour over bean mixture.
Put lid on, close valve, and set Instant Pot to bean, normal setting for 30 minutes (if you want them REALLY soft set to a bit longer but we think this is perfect).
Do a natural release and lift lid carefully. Can serve immediately or if you want sauce to thicken set to saute normal again and stir slowly as it boils for 4-5 minutes, then let it sit for about 10 minutes for sauce to become thick! Leave in IP to stay warm with top ajar.
